Well, here it goes. My first husband of eleven years passed away suddenly in November of 1999, leaving me with two children, ages 10 and 8. I had a lot of family around, but was really feeling the effects of being lonely.
In September of 2000, my step-dad gave me his new computer, and that's how I found the website. I was pretty skeptical at first and a little nervous about posting information about myself online, but I figured I didn't have anything to lose and there was no guarantee I would even have any contact with anyone.
fter filling out all the information in my profile, I clicked to get my matches, and Scott was actually number 2 on my list. I read his profile and saw his picture and decided to send him an email on September 30, 2000 - never expecting to get a reply. What a nice surprise it was to hear from him! His notes were sincere, sweet words, and I was hooked before I knew it. He told me he was in the Navy, divorced and lived alone here in town. Well, before I knew it (not knowing what came over me), I invited him to my home for a nice, home-cooked meal. He gave his phone number, and we talked on the phone for several hours and finally had our first date on October 7, 2000. It lasted all night long.
We get along wonderfully. He's intelligent, witty, has a great sense of humor and he's pretty good-looking too. He gets along good with my family, and he's great with my children, and they love him. I never imagined I could ever find anyone like him.
We've been together for nearly two years now, and we're getting ready to move to North Carolina. We just had a baby girl in June of 2002, and she's beautiful.
Attached is a picture of the 5 of us. Thanks again!!
Lori and Scott
