Met someone on this site 1-1/2 years ago and am very happy
We exchanged about 15 emails each before meeting (quite a few because we both have pretty busy lives - he has his 2 sons living with him full-time & I work and take courses). This was the kind of person I was looking for - one who had a pretty rewarding life already. Neither one of us was "desperate" to meet someone which I think is the healthy way to approach dating. We met at Earl's for a drink after work, then went for dinner a few nights later. He lives about 30 km from me so we typically only see other 2 days a week, so as of yet there has been no talk of marriage. He is divorced and a little gun-shy about marriage and I have never been one to be desperate to get married either. The most important thing is that we are both happy, which is not the case for many married people. Unlike many on the site who appear to be looking for meaningless encounters, neither he nor I had ever been like that.
