I met my hubby on an online browser game. It was not love at first meet, infact I was a bit scared of him at first! He was an older player (as in, been playing on that game for years and years, I was newer to the game) and was quite infamous. Everytime someone talked about him, they had strong feelings, either he was a great teamplayer, or he was an arsehole. It was basically one of those players you keep hearing about but never meet... and when you do, you're just so awed that you either wanna kiss their boots or stay faaaar away and only communicate on a basic level of grunts and short answers!
And that was pretty much how he first talked to me, short answers that only increased my feelings of intimidation! He of course later explained that he didn't really have time to play back then and just wanted to answer my groupie like questions lol! Then a few months later, a war started in that game and somehow, we ended up on the same team. Yet, we STILL didn't really talk to each other. The war started calming down into a stalemate and one night, he was online while everyone else was asleep. I was in Malaysia, on the other end of the world, so it was day for me. And he said hello... I'm grinning at this memory right now! Chat moved to skype and skype moved to his flight from America all the way to Malaysia!
My parents were shocked to see a giant American coming towards us that first face-to-face date! He is a full 6'4" muscular guy while I'm a petite little 5'1", so it was quite an impression! They had expected an equally short Asian guy! I was just downright shy hehe. It's been 5 years since then and I am now in America as his wife. Good times!
