Cyber Love Story – Andrea and Dan

Andy and DanAfter finding herself single again at the age of 52 with two teenage kids, Andrea decided it was time to join an online dating site in May of 2012.

She initially joined both Match.com and JDate. They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince and I did just that, said Andrea. Having one bad date after another, she kept going offline only to go back online again.

When she met Dan, she thought he was very different than any of her other dates. They chatted online only a few very brief times and sent a few texts to put a date on the calendar.

On the way to their first date, Andrea decided to call Dan. She told him that this was the only time she had never talked on the phone prior to meeting a date. He said it was his first time as well. When they met, she realized they had so much in common. They talked for hours and didn’t even realize anyone else was in the restaurant.  After many rounds of our “all you can eat” soup and salad, they said their goodbyes and Dan walked Andrea to her car. Andrea tells said, He gave me a huge kiss and I was kind of surprised by it, but pleasantly!

Then their Cyber Love Story got tricky.

Three weeks went by before their scheduled second date, so Andrea didn’t think that Dan was very interested in her. She then canceled their date and starting dating someone else.

When that relationship ran its course, she rejoined Match for a second time. Dan noticed Andrea’s reactivated profile and “winked” at her. Andrea responded and wondered if he had recognized her, which he did. They made plans to get together almost immediately and finally went on their second date.

The two have been inseparable ever since and Andrea knows for sure, that Dan is the love of her life.  Andrea and Dan plan on moving in together and look forward to celebrating their one-year anniversary together in September.

Congratulations to Andrea and Dan who gave online dating a chance.

Cyber Love Story – Judy and Kenny

judyandkenny2 300x225Judy had been recently widowed and wasn?t ready to date yet. After her husband passed away she said, ?Never again.?

One night over Thanksgiving while visiting her family and was bored, she got a glass of wine and began to peruse the human MLS listing. In this, was match.com.

Judy only dipped a half a toe in to online dating, as she posted a profile with no information and no picture. After looking through a myriad of pictures of men in her area from 55-65, she decided that online dating wasn?t for her. She felt that all of the profiles seemed the same.? Before she turned off her laptop, Judy noticed one man?s profile which caught her eye. Kenny had a big smile, curly blond hear, and was wearing a baseball jacket from her favorite team.

Judy laughed at reading Kenny?s humorous profile. However, Kenny had stated in bold letters, ?DO NOT REPLY IF YOU DON?T HAVE A PICTURE,? proving once again that men are visual.

Judy decided to send him a cordial email to tell him that although she had no picture she just wanted to tell him what a funny profile he had. Kenny?s headline said,??I?m looking for someone who colored outside the lines.?

Judy told him that she colored outside the lines professionally, as she was an artist. Upon receiving Judy’s email, Kenny laughed at her remark and wrote her back. Judy was sure she was not ready to date and was only writing to pass the time while she was away on vacation. The two exchanged several emails and much to both their surprise, agreed to meet when Judy returned to town. Kenny still had no idea what Judy looked like, so when Judy returned, they had their first date and spent 5 hours together having coffee. It was “like” at first sight for both of them.. After six months, they decided to move in together and have been a couple for one year.

Both Judy and Kenny colored outside their lines and didn?t close the door when Kenny viewed Judy?s empty profile or when Judy was sure she was not ready to date yet.

It’s amazing what can happen when you follow your intuition, break your own rules, and open your heart.

Congratulations to Judy and Kenny, our Cyber Love Story of the Week couple.

Cyber Love Story – Elizabeth and Josh

Cyber Love Story of the Week - Elizabeth and Joshua

I often say that the best things in life are worth waiting for and that you need to be proactive about finding love, both online and offline.

In a heartwarming story, our friends at Match.com have just announced that brunette beauty Elizabeth Kitt, one of the hopefuls in The Bachelor, found love on their online dating site, after her two unsuccessful attempts on national television.

After having her heart broken in both The Bachelor and The Bachelor Pad, Elizabeth found herself alone in her apartment in Los Angeles. She finally decided to take matters into her own digital hands and signed up for a 6-month membership to Match.

“Starting off on Match.com was an immediate thrill,” said Elizabeth. She added,? “I decided to have fun with it and not take each date too seriously. When I got a message from someone who seemed interesting, I immediately set up a time to meet. I went on tons of dates in those 6 months!”

Towards the end of her 6-month subscription, Elizabeth received a message from a guy named Joshua that read, ?In case you missed the first one.”? The note jumped out at her because she had, in fact, missed the first message.? After reading his online dating profile and looking at his photos, she sent him a message,? ?Let?s meet up! Just tell me when and where, and I?ll be there.?

Elizabeth enjoyed her first date conversation with Joshua.? At the end of the date he asked her how he could get a second date with her. She paused for a minute and asked him, ?Well, how many dates have you been on from Match.com?? To her, surprise he told her that she was his very first online date.

When Elizabeth got home, she sent him a text with her dating advice that said, ?You will get your second date with me as soon as you have gone on 5 first dates from Match.com. Joshua was up for the challenge and kept Elizabeth posted on the progress of each date.

Both Elizabeth and Joshua continued to date others, but realized after the 5-date challenge that they wanted to be together and had found their soul mates.

Congratulations to Elizabeth and Joshua, our Cyber Love Story of the Week who put their new relationship to the test and won with flying colors.

Cyber Love Story of the Week – Sarah and Nathan

CLSSarahandNathan 150x150After looking at the MySpace pages of friends of friends of friends, Nathan somehow stumbled upon Sarah?s page. He found her profile banter funny and witty and sent her a message inviting her out for dinner. After viewing Nathan?s (ahem) ?colorful? page, Sarah decided that it would be entertaining to spend an evening with an odd character.

They went to a perfectly normal dinner and chatted about perfectly boring things. Sarah was surprised that Nathan?s online demeanor did not translate into a host of quirky personality traits.

At the end of the meal, Sarah said that she?d like a piece of gum. She didn?t have any, though, and there wasn?t a convenience store around. Nathan, thinking quickly on his feet, popped into a retro toy store and proceeded to buy every pack of gum they had. The duo spent the remainder of the evening sitting outside, chewing piece after piece of odd-tasting gums of a different era. Sarah was won over.

Four years later?and still very much in love?the couple consider themselves not only domestic partners, but life partners, as well. It seems that the relationship has had even more sticking power than the gum. Congratulations to Sarah and Nathan, who prove that sometimes love will find you, even when you aren’t looking for it.
