It can happen to you too!
We corresponded for about 2weeks via the dating site's IM system, which was tough, because I'm 1st shift & he's second, so there was a lot of space between messages.
He asked me to meet him for a casual drink at a local restaurant with karoke bar where we had drinks & appetizers. We really hit it off, so he said he wanted to take me out on a real date the following weekend for a nice dinner. We IM'd during the week, had dinner & the rest is history. It's only been about a month, but yes, we are already talking marriage (in the future) & buying a house together (totally crazy, but we know it's right!!) We're really getting to know each other & even thought things are cruising at top speed (emotionally), our working different shifts (for now) is keeping us grounded because we don't see each other much during the week. We're already great friends, enjoy doing things together (he's even teaching me to play golf!) & we're building a romantic relationship on that friendship. What has been key is not getting physical right away (well, except for awesome make-out sessions). We both agree that people jump into bed too soon & that's all they have, so it doesn't last. We wanted to know we were meant to be together before we got that intimate & he hasn't put any pressure on my in that regard, which has been wonderful! Men don't realize what a weight that puts on us. People should take the emphasis off sex & put it on getting to know the other person. That creates the foundation for a lasting relationship, & the physical part will be better because it will be based on love & emotions rather than empty lust & physical attraction. We truly believe this has made our relationship strong & will stand the test of time. Good luck to all, it can happen to you too!
