Kathleen & Tom, Married 11/2012
I first contacted Tom because I just loved his smile. There was a warmth about it that made me want to get to know him. We chatted online for a while, then spoke on the phone and made arrangements to meet for lunch. As we started talking over lunch I knew I had finally found a good man. We clicked right away. Just a short while after our lunch had ended he called me an invited me over to his place to watch a college football game. Our second date we went out to dinner and I was so disappointed he didn't invite me over again (I found out later he didn't want to seem too forward). On the day we were supposed to have our third date - I was taken to the hospital by ambulance (later determined to be minor medical issue). Not only was I going to miss our date but he was the only person available to pick me up and bring me back to my car. He was even kind enough to still take me to dinner since I hadn't eaten most of the day. From that point on we saw each other every chance we could.
I moved in with him a year later and we decided that marriage was not yet in the cards for either one of us. However, after a year together it became apparent to both of us that we were very happily settled in and marriage seemed like a good idea. When he asked me to marry him we decided not to wait and had a small intimate wedding just 5 short weeks later.
Thanks Plenty of Fish for bringing us together
