made some pretty cool friends irl via this site but most of them don't go on here anymore
so thanku serebii joe u changed my life brah
when i was a babby and frequented here more often i would stalk the newbie lounge and ask out boys around my age. it was fun until it got too legit for my twelve year old self to handle lmfao
Thanks! When I look back on my times here I either cringe because of the jaded buttholes who made snarky comments or laugh for a long time because twelve year old dating on a pokemon forum.
My girlfriend probably does not realize how much of a Pokemon fan I am :P
She knows I play the game, but I do not think she knows how much I have played since I was a young dude. However, I am glad she does not care whether I play videogames or not.

Well, this isn't love. However, I meet a friend over on Gaia Online about 4 or something years ago. We been very tight every since. However, we just best friends right now. So, even if it love or best friend, you could friend that someone.

I used to not believe that it was possible to fall in love with a girl on an internet forum without even seeing how she looks to boot, but my opinion was changed a few weeks ago when I realised that I had fell for a girl on here, based on personality alone too, I don't even know how she looks.
To be honest, guys, I've had a lot of romantic relationships off the Internet so I know love can happen even when you don't know someone face to face, though I haven't had that kinda luck here at Serebii's forums, but whatevz. X-3 It can't be helped!

Erm... well my boyfriend is on Serebii too, though he hasn't been on in a long while... due to various reasons... *cough* x__x we met offline years before joining here though, so... ¬_¬
Um...No. I don't believe in love at first type.
I LIKE ELECTRODE
PROBLEM?Check out my forums http://pokemoncompetitive.boards.net/
In the time I've been a member here, there are some times that I look back on fondly, and others where I want to slap myself. Thankfully for you (and my cheeks), this is a story about the former.
For me to tell it, though, we have to go back a little bit. And by a little bit, I mean about eight years ago: 2005. I was a snot-nosed kid who was barely through his first year on this very site. I spent most of my time in the Pokeshipping thread that existed back then (about two or three iterations ago; I've honestly lost count). I made friends that I still talk to today, but one girl in particular struck my fancy. She & I hit off rather well, and spent most of our days talking, whether through forum posts or AIM (yes, I'm old).
After a year or so of this friendship, I found myself thinking of this girl a lot. I'd never had myself thinking about a girl this much before (well, that's not completely true: anyone who knew me back then knows why). After mulling things over for a bit, I decided what was going on, and that the best thing to do was to be honest and simply tell her. So I did. Seconds past, and I waited...
... And she replied that she was feeling the same. Now, I'd had girls over the Internet that I've befriended confess crushes on me, but this was the first (and only) time where I've felt the same. After some talking, we decided to commit and embark on that adventure known as a relationship.
I suppose I should mention here that I live in Southern California, and she lived in Long Island. But of course, with the wonderful advent of the Internet and our years of prior friendship, we were as close as we could be. Over the years, we anguished at the distance between us, but persevered. Our few webcam chats were treasured, and our in-person meetings were dreams come true.
Eventually, in 2012, she made and followed through on a decision to move out to SoCal and live with me, which she has for the past year. We have our ups and downs, as every relationship does (though there aren't many downs, thankfully), but we're very happy together. We're both still Pokemon fans, of course, having gotten X/Y last week, and spazzing out about things that pique our interest.
Love, much like life, finds a way... even on the Internet, at a forum about Pokemon.
We are, too. We always have friends telling us how amazed they are at how our relationship goes (particularly being physically apart for so long). It was difficult at times, but in the end it's just so worth it.Originally Posted by Puma Italia
I also like seeing peoples' reactions when we say we met over Pokemon, because people never expect it.
It's great to read such nice stories =) Personally I haven't found love here, just a lot of awesome people of whom I'm happy to call them friends.

Although I joined Serebii in 2007, I didn't become active until a year later.
I met a certain someone here in 2008, and we became best friends since. We both developed feelings for one another throughout the years, but we didn't officially become boyfriend and girlfriend until around Christmas of 2011. It took us awhile to finally admit it and we were each other's first love, haha. Not to mention the many things we share in common. xD
Although this is a very rare case, we manage our long distance relationship fairly well. :3 (I'm in California, he's in Pennsylvania.) And we often send gifts to each other twice a year. He's not as active on here nowadays, but we always keep in touch on Skype.
But yeah... if it weren't for both Pokemon and Super Smash Bros Brawl, we probably would've never met. Oh, how time flies...
My boyfriend is a tub of Cookie Cream ice cream and a Cardboard Cutout of Ryan Gosling. (No, I have no e-dated and probably never will. I think that sort of think is best with face-to-face contact)
Though, a SPPf boyfriend would have to answer me about how he eats his Cadbury Creme Eggs.
Oh lawdy, I remember this bloke.This thread makes me think of Dattebayo for some strange reason.
I dunno, on one hand I think online dating is weird, on the other hand your judging solely based on personality, which is neat.
I watched a programme recently about Japan (don't worry, I like the Japanese very much) and there's a growing problem over there about the games that they have; there was two men playing with this virtual girl game and they were in a 'relationship' with them.
I don't want to generalise, good grief no, but apparently that's what it's like over there in some parts...
....probably...I'll shhh now :-S.

that isn't really anything like online dating, but yeah, those dudes are weirdos.
i don't think i would date anyone from the internet unless a) we'd hung out irl and b) they lived kinda nearby. trying to 'date' someone that lives literally half a world away is like the least practical thing i can possibly think of
lose ourselvesalong the way
i've had my crushes on here in the past. and i guess i kinda knew who kinda/sorta liked me, but idk, i'm kinda like all i dunno indifferent to it all now and ****. but whatevs, it's all cool, i just go with what works for me nowadays. everything is kinda almost the same now.
Didn't meet her on Serebii, but she was in the same pool of friends on Skype. She is the most adorable person I've ever met, and I find it hard to believe that she actually likes me back. Maybe I sell myself short, I dunno, but I'm crazy about her. The best part is she lives about 20 minutes away from where the rest of my family lives, whom we're visiting this Christmas. I can't wait to see her! >/////<
