Adam & Lauren, Married 9/2013
"An INCREDIBLY fast connection!"
Well, what can I say... I doubted the online dating universe and look where it landed me!
I've never been much of a dater. The idea of going out to a bar or public place and actually making an impromptu connection with a complete stranger I found attractive terrified me. For whatever reason I just couldn't do it. I have no idea sparking up a conversation with a complete stranger thought. Strange combination.
To make a long story short, my now fiance (Lauren) joined Plenty of Fish as somewhat of a joke to follow one of her girlfriends who was historically known as a hopeless dater. Her group of friends joined the site and had been members for about 2-3 weeks. I made the decision to try out this site because it was free and it looked like people were making solid connections.
Within 3 days I was contacted by Lauren and was in disbelief that someone as attractive as her was actually on the site. We decided to meet for a date at a local hot spot in town one evening but the thought of waiting and anticipating was too much... I asked that she meet me for lunch first since our offices were so close to each other and it would offer a time limit in the event neither of us felt a connection right away. I told here it was my little "test" later. She passed the test, we got together for drinks that easy and the rest was history.
We now live together happily and have a wedding set for September 1st 2013. I can't believe I'm saying it but my online dating experience was phenomenal and has positively changed my life forever.
