Chris & Bethany, Married 3/2012
"True love turned out to be only a few hundred feet away!"
Bethany and I met in April of 2011, after I had sent a message filled with hesitation, thinking never-in-the-world would she have replied back to me. Little did I know that she wouldn't stop talking after we got things moving along. After about a week or so of talking, texting and email, we both knew that there was something very special in front of us.
The really interesting thing, was that when the topic of current living arragements came up, was that we found that we lived in apartment buildings beside each other (quite literally, that is no joke). After that shock of "wow, of all the people we could have met", we decided that I would walk around the outside of my apartment building at the time, to finally meet, and go out to dinner. Needless to say, we ended up spending a lot of time together for the next few months. After a few unfortunate and extenuating circumstances, it became beyond obvious that we found something amazing and special between each other. We were engaged less than a year later and married within a month after. The best part of it all was that we found out we're expecting our first child when we were on our honeymoon in June of 2012.
With the end of our first pregnancy nearing, we couldn't possibly be happier. If it wasn't for taking that risk of seeing what each of us was like in real life, neither of us would be where we are today. To all of those who say online dating isn't worth it, I'll challege them to that any day!
