Success Story: Jan & Khadija

Online Dating Success Story: Jan & Khadija,

“We actually met mid July this summer where I was lying on the beach south of Copenhagen and thinking that I might be too picky since I had not met anyone I liked after my divorce 2 years back and then actually thought I would never meet anyone I could/would love again.

My cousin actually introduced me to a few months prior to that. I signed up for a 6 months membership and on a sunny afternoon at the beach, I turned on my smartphone and began browsing. Suddenly, I saw this stunning girl wearing summer clothes and sunglasses , walking down a street in Marbella in Spain during her summer vacation earlier this year and something in my stomach just felt right immediately. I just started writing to her right away.

She was 32 and I just turned 48, so i thought that I had a snowballs chance in hell to catch this beautiful girl. But I took my best shot and it actually turned out that she was also lying on the beach in her hometown, which was Helsingborg in Sweden (approx 200 km from my place), looking for a mature guy who wanted kids and have a serious relationship.

There we were , both of us who had just become members of a month before and both given up hope finding love again. Now we were texting each other about our lives/expectations/experiences/wishes/etc. on a beautiful day on the beach. After a few hours I asked her for her phone number so we could talk the next day and she accepted.

I called her the next day and we talked for hours. Within a week, I stood on her doorstep in Sweden and she invited me in for Moroccan tea and sweets (she is Moroccan but has lived in Sweden most her life). We went out for dinner the same evening and had the best evening either of us had in years. We both fell in love that same evening and didn’t want to say goodbye when the evening came to an end. Around midnight, I had to return do Denmark.

It has been 3 months and we have been together every single weekend. Everything just feels right with her. We have already discussed children and looked at a place to stay together. I have put my house up for sale and as soon as it is sold, I will move to Sweden and settle down and start a family with her.

This is our ‘sunshine story’ of how we met and fell in love after a very short time on :-)”
