True story: About 20 years ago, a girl halfway across the country that I met in an online game (a MUD) sent me chocolate chip cookies. We've been married for 15 years as as of this summer. Be very careful about who you send cookies to/receive cookies from via the mail.

That's so sweet! :) Congratulations on all that time together. :)My husband and I met in a far more mundane fashion: at a wedding.

Hey Dewd...What MUD? Just curious.

Multi User Dungeon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUD

I know what a MUD IS...I was wondering which MUD he was playing. I've always called MUD Multi User Domain, but that's because I played a SciFi one named Federation, and calling it a dungeon seemed silly.

Think WoW - except it's all text and there's only about 50 players max, and you have to type everything, including casting spells. But we did, at least, have macros. :)
When I tell someone I met my girlfriend at the Orc Tower in Butcherblock Mountains, I usually get a confused look.

It *used* to be called Discworld 2 and had a bunch of areas build off the Discworld series of books by Terry Pratchett. I think there was some sort of complaint from the original Discworld MUD and we renamed it Virtual Realities since we had so many different areas that weren't Discworld based anyways.

That's such an awesome story :) Here's to many more happy years!For what it's worth, my husband and I met one day in guild chat when he asked, "Do I know you?" and I answered, "Nope. I don't know you, either."
