“In late 2008, I was just getting home from work and was quickly just going through some Facebook messages and had made my way to the FirstMet.com application. I had went through a couple of pictures and short profiles until I came to Erin. She was beautiful and had all the qualities of a girl that I was looking for. How surprised was I to find that when I clicked “yes” that she had felt the same way and the system had already sent emails to both of us.
A couple hours later we had exchanged a few emails back and forth which led to an Instant Message conversation. We stayed in contact for the next few days emailing and IM’ing whenever we had a moment. After a few weeks it became apparent that we were very compatible as the emotional feelings continued to grow. Fast forward another couple of months, and I took a plane out to see her for the first time. She was living in North Dakota and I was in Virginia so this was something that we had looked forward to.
Needless to say, meeting her was the icing on the cake and a couple months later she took the trip out to see me in Virginia. We continued to have a long distance relationship for about a year with both of us flying back and forth every few weeks. After a short time and passing the one year mark we both made the decision that she would come and move in with me in Virginia and she would continue her work as a Radio Personality and Voice Over actress on the east coast.
That brings us to where we are now. We have been living together for almost a year now and everything is going great and our love for each other grows as each day passes. Who would have thought a couple of seconds of time on an online dating site would provide a lifetime of happiness and love.
As the days pass we talk about marriage and know that one day we will make that happen.
To the folks that designed that application, please accept my sincere thank you on behalf of Erin and myself. It’s great to know that we aren’t the only ones that your application has helped and worked out for.
