 We met on one of the foreign dating cupid sites in 2013. Then we met in Madrid in 2013 in person at the airport and continued every year meeting in another country until this year we married in Spain. She lives in Spain, I can make a short story out of this in a few lines. So is it ok to say you met on a dating site ? Thanks, Jack

Yes, be honest and say that you met online then met in person.

 

The vast majority of social/dating sites will not trigger IMBRA as long as they are open to all people, and don't specifically target US Citizens are their primary client base.

 

BUT if the site specifically states they ARE  a marriage broker, or only accept US Citizen clients, then IMBRA would apply (tip: unless they clearly do one or both of these things IMBRA will not apply).

Absolutely tell them how you met if asked.  It's 2019, people meet others on dating websites and apps all the time now, nothing to feel ashamed about if you first got to know each other on Ok Cupid or something and later met in person.

make a copy of the terms and conditions of the dating site and the start of your correspondence (before quitting the site)

keep this in case RFE comes for how you met
