I started using the Internet personals to find dates about a year after my divorce in '97. I went out on many dates, but didn't meet the right guy. In Feb of 2000, I was dating several guys, but no one special.
Then on Valentines day, I got an interesting note from a guy on Spark.com. He didn't have a picture and that kind of turned me off since I get so many responses, but his note was very sweet. He said that he was browsing profiles and signed up for Spark.com just so he could send me a note. I thought that deserved a response. After that, we emailed a few times and then arranged to have dinner. Our dinner date lasted from 7 - 11:30 p.m. We enjoyed each others company so much that we hadn't even realized it was that late.
We've been together ever since. On my 39th birthday, Mark proposed, and we were married on January 18th, 2003. Thanks for helping meet the man of my dreams.
Beth and Mark
