This morning I stumbled across BBC World Service’s Outlook programme, which was talking about interracial dating. The programme was part of a series on Internet love stories.

Many of those featured found love with someone from another country. One of them is James, who has been married for eight years:

“I’m Irish and met my American wife playing checkers online. We chatted for about three months and got married in Las Vegas two days after we met”

If you’re interested in participating you can share your story with them by emailing

And don’t forget, you can share your story with us too. Just fill in the form and we’ll get in touch.
