One Sunday afternoon some weeks ago, I was checking the mingle to see if anyone interesting had viewed my profile. As it turns out, one minute before, "rowdymb" had checked me out. He was just randomly looking at profiles. Neither of us had ever come up on the other's search lists.
I read his profile and found him to be intelligent, open, and full of good humor. And it didn't hurt that he looks great! So, I sent him an email telling him that I thought he was interesting. He IM'ed me right back, and we talked for about an hour and a half. We quickly discovered that he used to date a good friend of mine from college, and they remained friends. This was very comforting, because I trust that friend's judgement. If they could remain friends after dating, then he must be a good guy.
IM'ing progressed to phone calls and webcam meeting, which progressed to meeting face-to-face. From the moment we met in person, we both were so comfortable with each other. He's someone I can be completely myself with, who I felt like I could trust immediately. He's fun to be with, thoughtful, sweet, and supportive. We have managed to be together every weekend since, and our feelings for each other have grown with every visit. We both felt completely peaceful about our decision to marry. As cheesy as it sounds, we both feel like we've met our "other half". I can't imagine life without him.
So, that's our story. I never thought in a million years that I'd meet my eternal companion on a dating site, but I'm so grateful for mingle. There's no way we ever would have met otherwise.
PS--attached is a photo of us taken the day we were engaged.
