I’d been on Match for a while and was on my last week of the subscription; I vowed to wink at 10 more people before I gave up. It was John’s first week on Match and he emailed me very soon after I winked at him. Seriously I believe now when people say “they knew this person was the one.” We met up for coffee on an awful, snowy night in Denver and really clicked… he followed up that night which I really liked. No games. From that day on we talked multiple times a day and hung out whenever our schedules allowed. It was just so easy and everything felt so right. We discovered we have one friend in common but would never have met if not for Match. Our love of travel, things to do and where we want to go in life just complimented each other so well. Right before our two-year anniversary John proposed! We plan to get married in Cozumel, Mexico at a resort we stayed at shortly after starting to date and are sooo excited!
What made you try online dating?
I traveled three weeks a month and found whenever I was home I was seeing the same people and doing the same things. I needed to do more “research” since I hadn’t dated anyone in a while. My intentions for Match was to figure out what worked for me or not… and in the end I found my husband!
What was your first date?
We met at a Starbucks for coffee. There was a huge snowstorm and he was sick and we almost canceled… I’m sure glad we didn’t!
