Can you find love online?
I met my now husband online in June 2005.
At the time I was living in Hamilton and was off work sick, and bored, so I was online gaming when I started chatting to someone who said he was also in Hamilton. During the conversation we realised that he was in Canada, and I wasn't.
The next day we chatted again, and the day after that. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop.
He is smart and funny and almost the same age as me. He had never been married, had no children, and is an only child. I am from a large family and have a daughter from a previous relationship - she is now 27.
Over the next 18 months, he visited New Zealand twice, once for an extended period, and I visited Canada once. We then decided that we were going to do this and one of us was going to move somewhere.
In the end I moved to Canada because, as I mentioned earlier, he is an only child and I know what it's like looking after aged parents.
We have been married for seven years, and I love Canada -even the cold weather. I have a great husband, a fantastic job, and the only thing I would change is to have my daughter here as well.
