Just the beginning...
Gene and I met on the site last November. We corresponded online for a month before we met for our first date. We had an instant connection that has only gotten stronger during the past 9 months that we've been dating. We really took the time to get to know each other which I think has been the main reason our love is so strong. We are truly a perfect match for each other and I am so blessed to have finally found happiness in the best relationship I've ever been in. As far as future plans go, only time will tell, but I'm confident that I've found the person that will be my partner through the rest of this life :)
Advice to other members:
Hang in there. I've gotten so many e-mails from such great people who are having a tough time finding someone right for them. Just keep putting yourself out there without expectations and focus on making a new friend. If there is more there, it will come through. Good luck to all of you!
