My online love story
The One Who Seeks Will Always Find!
It was love from the first chat
I have never thought of online dating as of a tool to meet a man. I have spent in marriage almost all my teen and adult life, so the option of meeting people through internet sounded a bit weird to me. But life is unpredictable, you never know what can happen today or tomorrow, I have never thought that I would be divorced in my 40s, but unfortunately this awful situation occurred in my life. But this story isn't about my divorce it's about how I met my perfect man, my soulmate.
We met on a dating site 5 years ago. I was a divorced mom of two teenagers and he was a single dad of a boy.
Neither of us had ever done internet dating before. It was something new for both of us. I Have friends who met online, they have friends who met through internet too, so I was familiar with this way of meeting people but never thought I would try it myself.
There are so many sites for singles nowadays that it was not easy to choose the right one, after I made a little research I chose dating site for mature singles, as it turned out later it was the right decision.
What is a happy marriage for you?
Our first communication
I was genuinely seeking for Love, for a nice man, for a healthy relationship and commitment. I made a honest profile, described my situation, what I was looking for, my interests, goals and expectations from life. I downloaded a few good picture, the hardest part was to make a screename, I didn't want to sounds silly, or vulgar or desperate, after a few hours of brain storm I made up “inspired_byLove” name and frankley it was a state of my soul at that moment, I always believed in true love.
It was he who send me an e-mail first. It was short but sweet, he said “I've browsed your profile and I think you're amazing woman, It would be an honor for me to know you better”. I immediately read his profile he was a tall brunet with blue eyes, fantastic smile, decent job, active lifestyle, a son of 14, without any doubts I sent him an e-mail back “ok, I don't mind”. In an instant I received one more e-mail from him with a proposition to chat later in the evening.
That night we've chatted till midnight, first few minutes were a little awkward but within an hour I felt like I have known him for ages. He was so nice, we talked about our previous marriages, hobbies, kids, as it turned out we had similar tastes in music, food and movies, we agreed to stay in touch as we both enjoyed our first chat a lot.
Our first date
We went out the first time to a lunch, the chemistry was there, we liked each other so much that we decided to meet for dinner the next day. I new that he was my perfect match from the first minute I saw him, he was everything I was looking for in a man.
Are you a happy person?
Meeting with children
After a few months, we decided that it was time for our children to meet and see how they would get alone with each other, because me and Jim were so excited about our relationship. We had the children meet up at a park and he day could not have gone better, to our surprise they found common language pretty fast.
A year later, Jim proposed to me, it was my Birthday the happiest day in my life!!!
Now we're a happy family of 5 online dating brought back joy and happiness in my life.
