, Married 6/2013
I was a member of POF, for a couple months, when in April of 2012, I ran across a profile of a woman who called herself "mystrifecta". Her profile picture showed a beautiful woman with long blonde hair. Her profile said she was a teacher.
As I read her profile, and what she was looking for, I thought she was describing me, perfectly. I waited a few days to message her, contemplating what I would say. Finally, I sent her a simple introductory message, telling her I thought she sounded interesting and invited her to engage in conversation.
We messaged back and forth for a week, then graduated to text messaging, then phone calls. After a couple weeks, we finally set our 1st date.. a breakfast date, for the following Saturday. the days dragged by so slowly. Growing impatient, we set up a quick meeting. We met, in the middle of the night, at a local park. We sat on the swings and talked for an hour.
That Saturday, we had our date. Best breakfast ever. From that day, we spent a lot of time together. Dinner dates, functions, seeing new places. Over a period of 4 months, we became best friends.
By the end of September, 2012, we decided we'd explore our relationship, beyond a close friendship. By December, I KNEW this was the woman I wanted to spend my life with. We continued dating, and on April 23, 2013, I dropped to one knee and asked her to be my bride.
We planned a small, intimate wedding at a beautiful waterfall, near a favorite place of ours. And on June 29, 2013, I married my best friend and the most incredible woman I've ever met.
Thank you, Plenty of Fish. If it weren't for you, I never would've had the opportunity to meet the love of my life. I hope other members are as fortunate as we have been.
