We corresponded for a couple of weeks, spoke on the phone a few times, then decided to meet in person (at a local restaurant between our residences). We had a lovely first meeting and hit it off right away. We had our first official date the following weekend. We have continued our relationship ever since--and it has only gotten better over time. We still live in our own homes, but see each other regularly. Marriage? That could absolutely happen in the future. We both cannot imagine life without one another.
Meeting online was a far superior way to meet for me. I liked getting to know something about the person BEFORE meeting them. It is very important to have things in common/compatibility, rather than to just be physically attracted to a person. Since we worth both honest in our personal profiles, that wasn't a problem. If people want to be successful in this method of meeting, they must be honest and forthright.
In any case, I couldn't have had this amazing opportunity without the help of this website! Thank you!
