Meca and Anthony were Facebook friends for about four years before they ever began talking online. As a divorcé, Meca began blogging about her experiences dating online and posted her writing on her Facebook wall. The two started messaging on Facebook, and then began talking on the phone for hours. In a moment of pure fate about a week before the scheduled date, Meca transferred onto the same train Anthony was riding.
“I was actually texting him while walking onto the train and there he was! We finally met in person… and it was love at first sight for both of us,” she says.
