How do two technologically impaired people from opposite coasts find each other? Match.com of course! In October of 2010, Alex took the plunge into online dating. Within four hours of searching online, he found Beth, his #1 draft pick. It was love at first click.
On their first date, Alex opened the car door for Beth (seemingly uncommon for west coasters) so Beth was already smitten. What had planned to be just a quick picnic turned into a 5-hour date including a petting zoo and trip to the Berkeley Rose Garden. Alex still claims he hired the musicians who were playing there when they arrived. On the 3rd date, Beth brought over some greasy (gluten-free of course) man-food to Alex’s apartment and they watched the Giants game. Alex and his belly fell in love. Over pupusas, they discussed their future! Things progressed quickly and they moved into a cozy Berkeley bungalow.Shortly after their one-year anniversary, Alex proposed to Beth atop a cliff overlooking the Pacific, as the sun was setting. It was a beautiful sunny California winter day. They spent a magical night at Cavallo Point Lodge to celebrate.
Alex and Beth are getting married on August 11, 2012.
Alex is half Japanese, half French from San Francisco.
Beth is a Jewish New York City girl who has settled in the Bay Area. She’s also a triplet.
How did you and your significant other find each other on Match.com?
Alex found Beth’s profile after a night of searching online. He reached out to her through email. He asked WAY too many questions to the point where she almost said no to a first date. But luckily she said OK and they spent the day in Tilden park. Beth was Alex’s FIRST and ONLY match.com date.
Who paid for your first date?
Alex picked Beth up and drove. Beth made a picnic.
