Before Internet to Social & Dating

I’ve been using computers since around mid 1980. Gather Starting out with the Commodore 64. Pretty soon the Commodore Amiga was released and I got myself one. This is when I got very thrilled by computers, what you can do with them and how it is done. Anyway if I am ever going to reach the point when I started using the internet I better move on.

So there I was sometime between 1990-1994. Sitting in a basement like a computer nerd, and I am sure some of my friends used to think I am weird. Using a 2400 baud modem with no error correction. Surfing BBSes around the world. Each marker on the phone line created a crack sound on the line, which produced some foreign language looking stuff on my screen. It was fun but very annoying.

And so it begins.

1995/1996 I studied Network Management and they had a ISDN internet connection in my class room. This was back when surfing the web was interesting but also very frustrating cause of all the beginner n00b type of web pages out there. Enter one page and find something interesting, click that link which took you to completely new domain and web page. This new page took you to another and so on. Often you never reach the thing you were looking for. Sometimes you got lucky though.

I was very interested in how you could so easily communicate in so many ways with people all over the world. Well to be honest at this time it was mostly universities and big companies having internet connections. But still. One day at my computer course I found a program named PowWow. It was chat client and it supported voice chat too. It was amazing to be honest. Pretty much the same week I found a web site which offered a 3D chat were you could walk around chatting to thousands of people in a pretty big virtual world. It was called World Chat. Here I met a young lady named Agnes from Singapore. We used PowWow for voice chat and I can tell you we were both completely crazy in love in short time. Sent each other gifts using snail mail and planning to meet in real as soon as possible.

Of course as time went by we never did meet, partly cause I usually fell for pretty women whenever I got drunk back home were I lived. Which was quite often back then, lol. Well thats the truth. But man I have great memories and Agnes if you ever read this mucho love from this vain man. All the best to you.

Marriage

Around the year of 2000 I came back after a solo trip to Caribbean. As you already know internet evolved alot from 1995-2000. This is when I found a new dating site. Back then I believe it was one of very few you could use for free which had some quality features and functionality. Here I met this wonderful lady named “”someone”. She lived in the city of Jakarta Indonesia. This time I was abit more mature and didn’t mess things up. We met in Sweden the same year and got married. Today almost 9 years later we have a lovely daughter and I consider myself a very happy husband. Still in love with internet though.

Dating Online and ending up getting married together with all experience using chat programs, dating sites, and all kinds of communication available on internet today, brought me some interest in making a new dating website with blogs, chat and all the features needed for people to connect and communicate. So we hired skilled people and started making our own dating site. However thats for the next article.
