Being a single father of 3 and living in a community where I thought I knew everybody, I was ready to meet the woman of my dreams. A friend of mine had met his wife online a few years ago so I said what the heck and I signed up. I met Shelley for the first time in a small coffee shop and it was literally love at first sight. I was so taken back by her physical beauty and her presence that I could barely speak. It turned out that we knew a lot of the same people and had many mutual friends. After our first “date” I thought she wasn’t interested. I told my mom, she is out of my league.
We talked back and forth quite a bit, but with 7 children between us something always seemed to come up when we attempted to make plans. As the weeks went by, one day she happen to see me (I did not see her) in Toys R Us and sent me a text asking if she just saw me. I told her yes, and that I really wanted to see her again. We finally met for a second date and from that day on we have been in LOVE. She is beautiful inside and out and I feel like I have won the lottery. I love her confidence, her selflessness, her ability to take care of everyone in her life with grace, her love for her family and friends, and her ability to make everyone in her life feel so loved. I hate computers and anything to do with technology but this was the best thing I have ever done. Between us we have 6 boys ages 15, 9, 8, 7, 7, 5 and ONE precious little girl age 2. Our children are so excited about us getting married and are already best buddies. I told her I was going to tell our story so here it is. Thank you match.com for helping me find the woman of my dreams.
