57. This is a great thread
I "re-met" my now wife via email. I dated a wonderful gal in high school and college - for reasons of immaturity (mine) and such (hers) we broke it off and went our separate ways.

Flash forward 20 years and I find an email address for her. I send her an email to say hi and the emails never stopped. They turned into phone calls, visits, and eventually me moving across the country. Texas to Minnesota - brrr!

I found the job that allowed the change via the internet, and it happened to be in the same building she had just accepted a job in! Not bad for a town of 75k.

We are very happy and fall more in love each day. I love the internets.

thanks for a fun thread.
