, Married 5/2015

A friend of mine had just joined POF and was showing me messages & photos of the men she was chatting with. I was single and felt I had nothing to loose for trying this site out, so I created my profile with no expectations & this is where it all began! I constantly was receiving messages and even took one of the guys up on his offer for a date, but we didn't click. By the end of the week, I felt like continually weeding through messages was a bit exhausting and also realized I wasn't in a hurry to meet anyone, so I replied to a few messages, gave my number to one of them and deleted my account. Shortly after, I got a text message from the guy I gave my number to and we began chatting--every day. The connection was instant. He stood out from the rest; he-wasn't overly flirty & certainly didn't give off any sort of bad vibe. We planned out first date after 1 month of daily conversations. He was driving out to California for a new job in the bay area and stopped in Sacramento along the way to meet me. The anticipation and thrill of our first date was beyond anything we had experienced recently, if ever. We went to a cozy restaurant on February 1st 2013 for our first date. We stayed in that booth for over 6 hours laughing the night away. It was as if I had always known him. The rest was history after that. I quit my job 6 weeks later and moved out to San Francisco area to live with him. A year later, we got engaged, and a year after that on May 9th, 2015, we exchanged our vows on Hotel Vitale's rooftop overlooking the bay bridge. We are both so grateful for this website that allowed us to connect. I would not have met my husband had it not been for this site!! So thank you :) We are happy, connected, and living life to the fullest!!!! <3
