I found this to be a very helpful site. I first had contact with my now husband in june of 2005. We emailed and then talked for a couple of weeks before we met. we met down in Seattle for our first date which lasted about 10 hours. After that we started having weekly dates and talking on the phone more and more. We ended up getting married in October of 2007. What really helped was that we lived only 35 miles from each other which made it easy to date. Your web site was great in that I had a lot of interested members to talk to and meet. I made sure before I met my huband to that we met in a public place for several dates before we were alone together. The dates worked out really well. It also helped that we were the same age and had the same interest in life. My husband was the one that lived in Smokey Point, WA with the caption "single for too long."
