I joined Gothic Match one day when bored and feeling rather depressed at the state of my life. I expected nothing whatsoever as I didn't feel dating sites worked and that no one would want me anyway.
But one day I got a wink saying 'I would like to get to know you better' from a user called Ryan, again I didn't expect much but we began emailing and got on really well, that progressed to msn (he probably still doesn't know this but the first time we ever spoke on msn I was in the bath!) we didn't stop talking after that, never had I been able to talk to someone so easily and quickly I fell head over heels in love, and was very pleased to find he loved me just as much. But just like any good love story, there was a bit of a glitch and we broke up. However a month afterwards i realised there was no way I could ever get over the love of my life and contacted him, we began talking again and everything was just as it was. Finally on 19th October (over 7 months after we first spoke) we finally met up and became a proper couple. We haven't looked back since and I can honestly say I've never been happier or more in love. He really is the most perfect person in the world and way more than I deserve.
So thank you so much Gothic Match for being more than i ever could have expected and helping me find my soulmate :D People really aren't meant to know this level of happiness exists :)
We met here on gm in December 2005. We wrote back and forth a few times, then Ryan and I decided we were in love so we became more than friends. Ryan dropped his life in Independence,MO to live with me in Camp Verde, AZ in May 2006 six weeks later we were married and have been ever since true love DOES exist!! Thank you Gothicmatch without you I have no idea what my life would've been like . . . .kisses Ryan, Amanda and Gavin Robertson

Our first communication was on May 12th, 2006. Eric and I exchanged a few emails at first and then started talking via Yahoo IM, which then progressed to telephone conversations after just a short time. We had a lot in common and hardly ever ran out of things to talk about. Even when we did have our moments of silence, those moments were "comfortable" and not awkward in any way.
Since I lived in Texas and Eric lived in Oregon at the time, we couldn't meet person to person right away. But through all the different communication outlets (mostly phone and text) we were fine with that until one of us could afford the time to travel. We were finally able to meet face to face on Feb. 15th, 2007. I flew to Oregon to see him and stayed for 6 days/5 nights. We had the best time! Eric introduced me to his family and we hit it off right from the start. It was truly a memorable little vacation for Eric and me...one that we still talk about to this day. After returning home to Texas, we found ourselves missing each other terribly. So badly in fact, that after a second visit in April, we decided that I just needed to move to Oregon so we could be together. I was finally able to make the move in August of 2007, and we've been together ever since.
Eric has since taught me his trade (custom knife/tool making) and we are currently working as a team to build a bigger future for ourselves in that business. It has been a little over 4 years now, since we made that first connection through Gothic Match, we're so happy together and we wouldn't trade this experience for the world. There have been a few discussions about marriage, but we feel that may still be a few years away yet. For now, we are perfectly content just being fully and completely committed to each other (I am wearing a commitment ring), and we are so grateful that we were able to find each other through Gothic Match.
We met on your site. I contacted him first. We spoke for 3 weeks before we met in person. I went to him, he lives in Lancaster and I am in North Wales, so it is a bit of a journey. He is brilliant, we get on really well, and we have so much in common. We have no plans for marriage, hahaha!!! But we are planning a holiday to Norway in October and we are also going to Bloodstock in August. Happy days! Thanks to Gothic Match! He treats me very well and I would like to recommend it to EVERYONE!!
I just wanted to write and thank Gothic Match for introducing us. My partner is no longer a member, but we met on here January 2008. We dated long distance from Jan 2008 - July 2008, I moved to Nottingham to be with him and we moved in together July 2009. He proposed to me after an AC/DC concert in Paris last week and I accepted! We plan to marry next summer and are so happy.
My wife and I met through gothicmatch.com about four years ago and could not be happier. We talked back and forth for probably about three months before we actually met face to face, but knew right away we were witnessing something special. I was living in Kansas at the time and she was in Chicago. I had started looking outside of my own state and in other cities closer to my home state of Indiana in hopes that during a visit back home I could make a detour to meet someone special. She responded to my emails and after some getting to know one another online and over the phone, agreed to a meeting in Chicago. We went for a nice walk and had some dinner, and saw our first movie together in theaters, V for Vendetta. We continued to speak and go out, finally progressing to her making flights to Kansas and me doing the same for Chicago until I was finally able to move here to Chicago about a year later. We were married about a year after our first date and haven't looked back since... and we owe every bit of this to gothicmatch.com for offering an "alternative" dating site for those people that don't shop at Banana Republic.
We met on GothicMatch in 2005 through just a wink. In 2010 we were married. This was a great site to meet someone with similar interests, especially for two people who may have been too shy to talk to each other at a night club. Thank you GothicMatch, I can honestly say you've changed my life!
i hadnt used the site in over a year because everyone was to far away to get to know,then i moved to perth and just out of curiousity i logged in.i seen his picture and immediatly wanted to know more,so i made contact,and within hald a hour i had a email from him.we exchanged numbers and realized we had alot in common, 7 months later we are engaged and planning our gothic wedding!
There was never a thought in my mind that I would be one to fill out this form about how I met someone on a dating site. Hee I sit almost a year later after meeting my hot German boyfriend on Gothic Match, and I couldn't be happier. German has been a part of my life since I was 13 years old (when I first began studying the language) up until the way of University and there was a part of me that secretly hoped I would meet someone who I could practice my language skills with and go to Music festivals with. I saw my now boyfriend's profile, and only wrote him "What music do you listen to??" and for 3 months, no response until one day (ironially a very stressful and taxing day) last February he wrote me back. The conversation only focused on music, and he was patient with my extremely rusty German writing skills, and then suddenly asked if he had ICQ and das ware nur den Anfang.
We began talking, and immediately, it was as if something clcked between the two of us. We were instanteously on a similar Wavelength with one another, the more we spoke the more we realized how many commonalities that we share, for three months we spoke until I was set to go to Germany for Wave Gothik Treffen, we decided to meet beforehand in Niedersachsen and the end result is that everything happened exactly the way it was supposed to. Our love of hard industrial and ebm brought us into conversation, but most importantly brought us to one another, to finally feel like there is someone else in the world who counterparts us exactly even though at times it seemed as if it would never happen. Since meeting, we have been together twice, and I have never been happier with another person in my life; and it is only the beginning. In many ways it is unbelieveable that things happened this way, but maybe sometimes dreams come true when you least expect them to. We currenly live far from one another, which is taxing at times, but to know this kind of happiness makes several thousand miles irrelevant in the short-term; as if we can make it, one day we will be together forever.
Jetzt Mein Deutsch ist fast perfektes, und ich bin verliebt, das ist doch sch?n
So Danke Sch?n, Gothic Match ^^
Lord_Lucifer first emailed me on the 5th of may 2009... i was unsure about emailing him because we did live 160 miles away from each other. I decided to leave it to fate and will admit i flipped a coin to see if i should reply or not. As it happens i did reply to him and We ended up talking online for hours and hours everyday for a month and decided to meet on the 3rd of June. I met him at the train station where i live with butterflies in my stomach feeling extremely nervous.
we have only been together for nearly 2 months now but they have been the happiest 2 months of my life!! I know that he is the only man for me! hes everything i have ever wanted in man and i love him unconditionally.
were hoping to move in together soon.
Thank you Gothic match for helping the missing part of my soul to find me. joining this site was the greatest decision i ever made!
Having little (and bad) luck with other methods of dating, I decided to try gothicmatch.com, toward the end of November '08. I was searching for someone in Ireland, since I was (& am) planning to move to the Republic of Ireland after my B.A.'s, to pursue a career in Medieval Studies and museum-related work, and ultimately finish my PhD. Additionally, I was studying abroad there the following January, and felt that it wouldn't hurt to possibly establish a few contacts before the trip.
Within the first week of my membership, I found the man whom I would shortly "stumble" in love with. He didn't say much on his profile; rather, it was his MAYHEM t-shirt (and nice face) that piqued my interest, initially. Even though I thought he'd overlook me & my long-winded profile, I decided to hazard the risk. It took a few days to hear back from him, but even from the start he was interesting to me, and very sweet.
We conversed via email for a wee over a month, and I gave him my contact info (phone). It wasn't long before he called me. I remember when he first called me - even though at that point my romantic interest in him was minimal, I melted utterly (and NOT because of his Kildare dialect!). It was short & honey-sweet. The phone calls would gradually become more frequent & lengthy (& my mobile bill more & more expensive, but well worth the cost).
It didn't take long for me to develop a crush on him, before I even "met" him. To be honest, I felt a bit stupid about it, but told him nevertheless. He didn't say much on the matter, being generally soft-spoken & by my estimation, somewhat shy, but the mutual attraction was made clearer when we met in Dublin, late in the first week of my study abroad.
The first date was absolute flirtation, and it wasn't long before the other ladies in my study group were asking after "that really hot Irish guy [I] went out with the other night." We even kissed on the first date - not one of those sloppy snogging sessions, but there were several gentle "Good Night" kisses on the mouth, and warm, glowing feelings that carried well on into the next week.
By the second date the following week, he was holding my hand, among other things (but not what you're thinking). He slept over that night (without mischief -_* ), or rather didn't sleep & stayed up all night/morning talking & cuddling.
While at that point we didn't opt to date, we did resolve to see each other again, and we have - twice in the past 4 months. He met my family last March with great success, & I have just returned from Ireland this past week, having finally met his family and friends.
Cliffie, who is 8 yrs & 8 months my senior, is a first-class gentleman; sensitive but by NO means a p*ssy; patient; ever-loving; endlessly entertaining; and while he may not be an Ivory Tower intellectual, he's intelligent, honest, hard-working. He and I share very similar aesthetic and musical tastes to boot. But more importantly, his "soul" is the complement to mine: he is the 9-1-1 dispatcher to my panicked caller, when I am fire he is my water, and when I am water he is my earth. He never criticizes (though he teases, which I do enjoy), & he is very supportive of me through good times/moods & bad, & I of him. When no one else can make me feel better, he can. No matter where we are or what we're doing, so long as we're together, we always manage to have fun.
Without a doubt, living almost 5,000 miles apart is beyond difficult. But we love each other deeply, and are equally resolved to be together. Although we're not quite set on how we're going to go about it in exact detail, we do plan to live together within the next two-to-three years.
In summation: I couldn't be happier. It is my sincerest thought (and hope) that he is the "love of my life," & he and I see each other being together for many years to come (and we plan on making that happen). Life looks infinitely brighter, amidst all the economic downturns and inevitable human drama. Thank you, Gothic Match! Without this service, Cliffie and I would probably never have met each other.
My fiancee and I were only looking for friends, he was married and I just got out of a relationship.
I looked on here, free membership, and he winked at me, and I had a 1 month membership just to talk to him. And we have been seeing eachother since. We have a wonderful son, and we are getting married Oct 31 2009.
Hey, this may be a little different to your usual success stories but none the less its still a story of success thanks to Gothic Match. Around 4 years ago i signed up and entered the poetry section... added my own stuff ans it was noticed by DoomGoth. He mailed me and related to my poems and from there was an instant chemistry.. a bond, the most amazing friendship ever. DoomGoth became ill and sadly passed away on mothering Sunday. I miss my friend dearly, the random chats, the hugs that made him feel safe.. Although it isn't a typical Love story, to me it is, I loved him very much. I never had a friend who could pull me up when i was at my lowest the way he did. If it wasn't for Gothic Match I wouldn't of found my dearest friend. I feel Gothic Match can help you find more than just love. SO thank you for giving me my friend. R.I.P My DoomGoth Gone but never forgotten.
I posted a success story back in May sometime about a man I'd met from the site, going by the nickname of Shadow. Although we've had a very difficult start and been through a lot of pain, I must say that I would endure all the torment of Tartarus for this man, and he was worth fighting for. We are happier together than I ever thought anyone could be. We are making many plans for the future, including traveling the world, settling down and having a kitten or two of our own! He first winked at me on the 21st April 2008, and I have never stopped loving him since.
Mummy found her self with too much time on her hands one night in 2005. That night she came across this site "Gothicmatch". She had a look around, chatted to some nice people, one of them was your daddy... we would chat on line for hours every night... even emails during the day.. three months later enough was enough... we had to meet, so we did and havent left each others side since, and what was the best thing to come out of this chance meeting....you... 2and a half years later.
From mummy , daddy... and gothicmatch
an old girlfriend of mine put me on here 1 day, without me knowing. i started getting emails, so i asked her about it and she said i should stay (i just got out of a 10 year thing with my 1st boyfriend at the time) so we got bored one day and started looking at peoples profiles. 1 came up of this guy, i said he was a little odd and she just laughed - we moved on. like 2 days later, he ended up emailing me, said we should talk or whatever - i was in "a mood" so i simply said "you dont look like a fucker - sure" (membering we looked at hes page and me saying he was odd lol) we talked for hours online! forever on the phone!! after a few months he came down (he lived in the next state) and we hung out for the day (as friends) it didnt last long, we fell in love! and i moved to hes state to be with him :) we got married a few years back and we'r talking about having our 1st child soon... thanks GothicMatch and thanks Ness *kisses*
I only joined in hopes of finding friends really, but instead I met a wonderful and almost perfect man that has made me realize there is a reason to smile. We started talking on here the beginning of 2008, then one morning after work we planned to take a weekend to hangout as friends. In return we found out that we have so much in common. We dated for months, fell so strongly in love with each other. I moved from Texas all the way to Oregon just to be with him. We've been living together now for 2 months, and our love is only growing stronger. Not once have I regretted leaving my state and family, when I have the man of my dreams that gives me more love then my little black heart deserves.
