Many couples meet online. Fewer meet online when they’re 14. But Lindsay and Steven did just that. Despite living in separate towns (and not having driver’s licenses) they dated for six months. They broke up but remained close friends for the next seven years. All that changed when Steve moved 3,000 miles away to California. Panicked at the thought of losing her best friend, Lindsay visited for five days that summer. When she returned home, she quickly packed up her life and moved to be with Steve.
