How do BF relationships work? Is it like a long distance relationship? Have you guys seen each other in person yet?

This is very interesting.

I think BF should have a subforum for dating services.

If you hook up you need to send me the standard finder's fee of $27.95.

Dateless Losers anonymous

With that being said... a bunch of folks owe me money.

That reminds me it's time to buy more flowers for the GF, and can put them in my new panniers that will have to be loaded evenly so I don't crash on the way to her place. I'm going to skip the humping bear though.

$27.95 is a good deal if you are able to send endless emails and post telephone numbers. Much better than cyclingsingles or match.com. Good going Sixty Fiver.


Luddite and DataJunkie- nice flowers but that bear has to go. Let the florist know that it has to go as it is more of a conversation piece than the beautiful arrangement.

It's a pretty simple process, the fee is one time and non refundable there is a clause written in very small print on the back of the contract that says you need to name the first child after me.

Seriously... I am pretty pleased seeing people I like find other people I like and get to liking one another even more than I like them.

I found my girl the old fashioned way... by internet stalking.

We haven't met in person *yet* but we webcam on skype every night, msg a lot, I mailed him a letter so far etc etc.

You could find a BFer that's local to you, too.

I like the bear, I think it's cute.

If luddite likes the bear she can keep it. If not it goes.

It did not seem appropriate to send a hugely expensive bouquet this early in our relationship. Plus, the plane tickets...

Luddite loves them and that is all that matters.

or you can meet someone, have them make you become obsessed with cycling, then you BOTH get BF accounts.
