It is fitting to be writing about this topic this week.
Does online dating actually work? here’s our love story.
Only because my husband and I met thirteen years ago to this day online. Yes, you read it right. Many of you reading this probably had no idea.
Well honestly, I never really admitted this to many of my friends or family only because it was still quite a new concept back then and honestly frowned upon. I think my mom still thinks I met my husband through a mutual friend.
Wait till she re this post! But I am not ashamed now. We have been married for twelve years and share four beautiful children together and five grandchildren. So I conclude that online dating does work. Let me be completely vulnerable for a second. The dream of meeting my match in a bar was not working. Yes, I did go to bars… shocker huh?
Most of the guys I did meet lied about their dating or married status, not looking for a commitment, or who knows what they were really there for. But I can tell you this, most of them were not looking for their future spouse. I had no luck meeting anyone while attending my local community college. That one scared almost everyone away.
Is the Yahoo Dating site even around still?! I will never forget it. I was at work, scrolling through the hundreds of profiles on Yahoo, almost in desperation.
Love stories: i was afraid of online dating, but took the leap
For the record, yes, I was supposed to be working but instead searching for my future soul mate. I have no excuses for that, except maybe that my dial up at home was too slow to even bother. I stumbled across what looked like a decent looking guy who lived an hour from me. I had lived in Georgia all my life but never heard of a name like Chatsworth??!!
Sounded like somewhere in the boonies!!! I have no idea except his profile struck me. Not his actual photo because it was a terrible picture of him by the way.
It was what he said in his bio. Clearly, he had a daughter. Well, no surprise I had a son. From my experience, singles who had children were not great fish to catch in the dating world back then. I reread his profile at least a dozen times.
I remember asking my co-worker if she thought he was a good looking guy? Well, aside from whether he was cute or not, he checked off most of my boxes of things I was looking for in a husband. Yes, I actually had created one of those lists. So I took a chance. Out of all the profiles, his stuck out to me the most.
I paid the twenty-something dollar monthly membership fee and sent him a message.

This allowed me to leave my in hopes he would respond back. To my surprise, he responded that night! Boy, oh boy, was that fast. Well, you will have to come back and read part two of my story and find out why our first date night was a disaster.
Love this. My husband and I met on Match 9 years ago tomorrow. We went on our first date about 3 weeks later and have been together ever since! That is awesome Angela! I am so happy to hear other success stories! Happy Anniversary!
