In October of 2003, I joined your site because a friend of mine said that it would give me people to talk to. I wasn't looking to date because I was tired of the games that people played, and I was tired of the bar scene, but I still wanted to talk to new people. So I gave it a try.
I read a profile on your site that caught my attention because I had so much in common with this man. After several days of wondering whether I should contact him, I finally did, and we began to chat back and forth. He quickly became a friend, and we would send emails back and forth letting each other know what was going on in our lives. He lived in another city, about an hour and a half from me, so I never considered that the relationship would be more than the friendship that it had become. Boy was I wrong!
We finally met in January of last year when he was in town for a birthday party. I knew immediately that this was someone that I wanted to get to know better, and I guess he felt the same since we are now living together and very happy. We have merged two families (four kids total) and everyone loves everyone else. He is more than I had ever dreamed possible and just being near him still gives me butterflies. We're having a house built and will be moving into it in July.
Thank you for making it possible to find this treasure. I never thought that a personals site could work, but I'm glad that I was wrong. You helped me find my soul mate when I thought that I would live out the rest of my days alone. I'll keep you posted. I'm still waiting for that ring!
