I put a profile up on Spark.com because I was looking to meet an American woman. I really liked the States and wanted to relocate there. Emily responded to my profile because she wanted to relocate to Europe. She thought that perhaps we could just get married and swap places!
We decided that an in-person relationship wasn't really possible, but kept in touch with our emails and chat, until it started taking up more and more of our time. Then, we called each other by telephone, and eventually, I went out to meet Emily in Birmingham, Alabama. We got on so well that when I returned after staying for three weeks, Emily decided to come to the UK and stay with me for three months.
That was 17 months ago...and she is still here with me. :-)
We recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary, and our first child is due in 5 weeks!
Thank you Spark.com.
