A craigslist couple finally tied the knot after 12 years of exchanging emails through an internet courtship. The couple are Scott & Nicole McIntyre. They first got in contact with each other in 1998 while they were chatting on Yahoo! Chat.
They both are in the U.S. at that time and are not far from each other but they never really met or even talked on the phone. They only exchanged emails and conversations online. But, eventually, they lost contact with each other until December of 2009. This was when Nicole posted for an ad on Craigslist under the “lost connections” section of Craigslist. She posted an ad in search for Scott, her long-time online friend.
Scott is not a Craigslist user and never really looked at the site. But one of his friends alerted him when he saw the ad. That friend wasn’t even close to him and he even had to search for Scott’s email through google. Scott said there’s a lot of chance that Nicole couldn’t have found him but she did. Scott answered her posting and they started to send emails to each other that rounds up to 500 emails a day!
Since December of last year, they had exchanged over 45,000 emails and Scott saved all these emails. At that time, Nicole was engaged to somebody else. But because she found Scott and they rekindled their online friendship again, she called off the wedding. She then married Scott in September in Las Vegas. They now live in Melbourne and plan to marry each other again next year.
