Nicole & Matt, Married 10/2014
"plenty of fish to just one fish :)"
I had started online dating after countless 3rd wheel dates with friends, failed relationships, and headaches from the bar scene. I was on plenty of fish for a few months, been on more than a handful of 'dud' dates and I was about to give up but my gut told me to try just one more time...what did I have to lose?
I logged on and started the search! I expanded my search criteria and all of a sudden, he popped up! There he was, with his big cheesey smile...it hooked me.
I sent him an email and he replied. We emailed for 2 months or so and then decided to meet. Our shared love of scary movies made it easy to decide to catch the new nightmare on elm street movie at a nearby theatre. I got there first and when he walked in, it's cleché, but I had butterflies.
We hit it off and one date led to another and another. After a yr of dating, we decided to move in together and adopted a cat, lola ( total daddy's girl by the way). That following yr, we moved to a bigger and better place and became a family of 4 after adopting another cat,jax, and in May we headed to Erie,pa for our annual anniversary getaway.
While in Erie, we had an amazing day out and when we got back to the hotel, he came over to me, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Obviously I said yes!
We will be getting married on 10-4-14! Our engagement photos are being shot at the theatre where we met and I am so happy to be marrying my best friend.
Everyday I think about how lucky I am to have found the person I was searching for, for so long. And how happy I am that I gave online dating one more chance! I never thought it would work for me. Don't ever give up looking! They could be the next person you meet.
