Stacey & Wayne
Both Wayne and I were frustrated with dating. I had just come out of an awful marriage and an awful year of dating. Wayne had zero luck at all with online dating. I had a ton of dates off of POF and several "relationships" that all ended, thankfully with little more than a few tears, a few drinks, and a resolve "not to do that again!" The week Wayne and I finally got together (we emailed for a few weeks first), I almost didn't go. I was so frustrated with men, I didn't think that it was possible to meet someone that I wanted to be with. Wayne was just looking for someone to share life with. Our first date was magical. I fell for him hard. We had so much in common and I felt like I just met my best friend. In fact, I had just met my best friend. He knew instantly that we had a major attraction for me and wanted to know more...and soon. His work schedule and a previously scheduled vacation for him kept us apart for the next two weeks. I used that time to truly evaluate whether I could take the possibility of being hurt again. I almost bailed, but hung in. Wayne was on a river fishing on his birthday and I texted a Happy Birthday picture that he didnt get until he was on the road coming back. He got back from his trip and rushed to put away only what he had to and headed straight for my house. We instantly held onto each other for about 10 solid minutes and we knew right then that we never wanted out of each others arms. We went to dinner for a late B Day celebration. We went back to my house where we made our relationship official for the first time. That was August of 2011. I moved into his home in October. I did not know that I could love a man as much as I love Wayne. Wayne is experiencing unconditional love for the first time with a true playmate, best friend and lover. I will spend the rest of my life taking care of him and Wayne will spend the rest of his life sharing it with me. We are so blessed. POF made the introduction possible, we did the rest. We are on a long, fantastic adventure for the rest of our days together. POF made it possible.
