Can you find a serious love relationship on Facebook?

The past two weeks I have been steeped in learning about social networking. I am curious about if couples who have met on Facebook. This is the most obvious site for this kind of activity. Will online internet dating sites become pase?

Facebook has been described as a big cocktail party. You meet someone through others. So social networking is just an extension of your circle of friends and colleagues. So this is my relationship questions: how can you take advantage of Facebook for when looking for a serious relationship?

I met a woman who met her husband on Facebook. This was the first time I heard about it. She said that they were both graduate students at George Washington University. He searched around her circle of friends and this woman, Jane, caught his eye. Remember, that Facebook has lots of information about you. It even has your love relationship status if someone cares to divulge.

Her now husband used the common bond of the same school to start the conversation with Jane. It’s like coming up to someone at a house party! They clicked and the rest is history!

You see it’s possible to get a real sense of a person by their profile and how they interact with others on the site.

Do you know a couple who has met on Facebook? Can you see using a social networking vehicle for meeting people to date for a serious relationship? How would you feel if someone was pursuing you from your Facebook connections?
