We had both only been on the site for a short while when we connected. We were both giving it a shot to try something new. Let’s face it, you don’t meet your future wife or husband in the grocery store! As much as we’d all like it to be that easy, it’s not. Meeting them in the bar isn’t all that appealing either when you’ve done a little growing up and figured out what you want in life.
We started talking via email on October the 19th, I gave her my number on the 20th, she text me the morning of the 21st, we hardly slept the night of the 22nd and on the 23rd we had what we both think has to be a record setting first date. It was 6 hours long.
The physical attraction was instant for both but we quickly connected in ways much deeper. She said she’d never in her life been so at ease with someone so quickly. I knew things were mutual when I asked her out on a second date before we were even half way through our first one, and she said yes! If you asked what I thought about our first date, the first thing that comes to mind was getting a good look at her back side! By the time I got back in my car my sister was ready to call in a missing person’s report.
Time quickly moved after that day and we fell in love fast! We wouldn’t have it any other way. We spent to many years on this earth without each other.
So it’s true, good things come to those that wait, but I can also say that it’s not just about waiting. You have to be ready for that moment. You have to be willing to let go of your fears. You have to open your heart! And you have to have fun together! You are writing your story! We’re so proud of ours!
