Gabriela & Michael, Married
"Kissed a lot of frogs....until now"
I had tried a few other online dating sites before a friend of mine convinced me to try POF. After nearly giving up hope that I would find "the one" and was the last of my single friends left standing, I figured I had nothing to lose. I will never forget the cheesy one line e-mail Michael sent me that changed my life forever. We talked for a few months and then finally had a first date. Military circumstances didn't allow us to have the relationship we wanted, but regardless of the obstacles, he was right there the whole time....waiting for the right timing. We met in May 2011 and have now been together over one year. We are newly engaged, and could not be happier. In addition, the friend who referred me to POF, married her match from the website a year ago. I never thought men like this existed until I met Michael. Joining plenty of fish was the best decision I ever made and has forever changed my life. I could not be more confident that we will live a happy life together. I just wanted to share and say a special thank you to POF, without this website Michael and I may have never found each other. I love him more than anything and cannot wait to spend our lives together. Although you don't always come across the right fit, we are proof that online dating can be successful. I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for us.
