Jacalyn & Lucas
I Did Not Expect To Find The Love of My Life...But I did...
I had joined POF without the intentions of finding anyone to date. I just wanted to meet new people. I was quite shy and as a Nurse, being surrounded by women, there was not too much opportunity to meet new people. I met up with a few people, but nothing persisted except for a few new found friendships.
Lucas messaged me in January of 2009 and I was not interested. He would send me long, complex messages and I would usually respond with one worded answers. He kept inviting me out on dates and I kept turning him down. I just was not interested.
Finally in July of 2009, he invited me out one last time and I finally agreed to meeting up with him. My best friend and I met up with him at a pub and we hung out, but I didn't see it going anywhere. The next day I told my best friend that I would not call him again, but she insisted that I do as she thought he was a sweetie.
I am so glad I listened to her. I called him to hang out again, and on our second date, I knew I had found someone special. 6 days later I told my best friend I would marry him.
We moved in together after 3 months, got engaged on our 1 year anniversary, and got married in October of 2011. We even had our first messages from both POF and facebook on display at our wedding!!! I am now that girl that tells my single friends that "when you know, you know".
Lucas is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I am so lucky to have found him. I would never have thought I would have found the love of my life online...but I did, and now I am the happiest girl in the world.
So to all the girls out there who have a crappy first date, try for a second. It could be the deal maker...
