I placed my profile on your site several months before Mark contacted me. I liked the format because it allowed me to really say a lot about who I was and what I was looking for. Mark said that he looked at my profile several times before he got the nerve to write. He was newly divorced and not sure he was ready to date, but was afraid that if he waited to write to me, my profile may be gone and the opportunity lost.
He first e-mailed me January 8, 2000. He lived 25 miles from me, which is unusual since we are in a rural area. We really hit it off right away. Soon, we began calling each other and spent hours on the phone every night getting acquainted. On February 16th, we had our first date. It felt "right" for us from the beginning. We became engaged on May 7th and are planning a getaway wedding in Maine next June.
I had met a couple of other guys online and had some experiences that were less positive. When I tell people how I met Mark, I always say that I did have to kiss a lot of frogs, but the end result was more than worth it. Where else can you search a database of thousands of eligible prospects for just the one you are looking for? At age 35, none of the "traditional" ways of meeting people had worked, and I wasn't sure Mr. Right was out there. Thanks for helping me find him!
