I was 26 yrs old and ready to find the person that I’ve always been searching for. I had never tried the whole online dating scene. But after quite a few dead ends and heart breaks, I decided, why not?! It didn’t seem like I was going to find the woman of my dreams at the bars, or through the countless setups via my friends and family.
So I joined. It was slow at first. I went out on a few dates. Some ok, some…NOT OK! And after about 3 months of being on match.com I had almost given up! And then it happened. I came across this beautiful, sexy woman with a smile that would make your heart jump out of your chest! So with high hopes I sent her a message and eagerly waited to hear back from her. And so I waited and waited and waited! NOTHING! She never responded. I was pretty disappointed because I had really hoped that she, above anyone else, would be interested. Another week went by and still no luck. With only 2 days left until I was going to hang my hat on the whole online dating scene, I came home from work, logged in and to my extreme pleasure, there she was!! She wrote me back and we set up a time to meet! Ecstatic, I planned our first date. From the first moment I saw her I knew that she was a good one. We went to my favorite sushi joint and talked and talked. She explained why it took so long to get back to me and I told her about how she almost missed out! Sarcastically of course. We had dinner, then went and grabbed some wine and later shared our first kiss as we were saying goodbye. And 10 wonderful months later I finally was able to do what I had always dreamed of doing. I got down on one knee and asked the love of my life to marry me! We’ve been together for a little over 2 years and have been happily married for 7 months. And we have you to thank.
