Readers tell their stories of finding love online

TIARO'S Sharonlee Cordell isn't the only one on the Fraser Coast who has fallen in love online.

There are plenty of hopeless romantics on the Fraser Coast, with people sharing their stories on the Chronicle's Facebook page on Wednesday.

Kristy Cowan shared the story of meeting her husband, saying she had accidentally sent him a text and they started chatting and became friends.

Six months later he made the move from Sydney to Hervey Bay and now the couple have been married for almost six years and have two beautiful sons.

Kimberly Lingard met her husband through Facebook. He sent her a friend request and they spoke every day after that.

The two are now happily married and have been together for four years.

Kate Skorski also found her partner on Facebook after her now-wife saw a funny photo she had posted.

"(She) instantly knew I was the one. We became friends, we chatted for two weeks and then she was on a plane from Norway," she said.

Plenty of others found their significant others on dating websites.

Lisa Unterrhenier met her partner on a dating website and despite a 14-year age difference, they hit it off.

They now have a one-and-a-half-year-old girl and are engaged to be married.
