I, along with my fiance, was a skeptic of dating sites. I never thought in a million years I would ever join one! I decided to give it a try just to see what was out there… I’m so glad I did! I happened to see Matt’s picture and something just caught my eye. After reading his profile I was hooked. I kept thinking “this is too good to be true.” I talked myself out of sending an email and logged off the site. Every single day that went by I just could not stop thinking about him! I would get on and read his profile everyday. I even looked him up on Facebook!
Finally after one week, I decided to send an email. “What the heck?” I thought. The worst that could happen is that he wouldn’t respond. Well he did respond, much to my excitement. We planned our first date on August 9, 2011. From that evening we were inseperable. We spent almost every single day together from that point on. After the second evening with him, I told my mom that I had met the guy I was going to marry. The amazing thing is that we ended up living less than a mile from each other!
December 2011 he asked me to move into his house with him and his dog, Enzo. We found out January 6, 2012 that we were pregnant! In April we took a trip to California, where we had an amazing vacation and Matt proposed on the beach at sunset. We are now happily engaged and expecting a little boy in September! I just wanted to share our story and thank Match.com for bringing Matt and I together even though we were living less than a mile apart! We are so blissfully happy together. I never imagined that I could love someone so much. I’m so blessed to have found the love of my life and the father of my child. So many amazing things can happen in one year when you spend it with the person you were meant to find and be with all along.
