Claire & Karl, Married 8/2014
"Our Happy Ever After...."
First of all thank you POF!! After meeting online in the July of 2011 we arranged a first date in Bournemouth on August 1st at Urban Reef, right next to the beach. Although both of us were a little unsure as to what online dating would bring we had the best first date ever and both went home smiling from ear to ear, looking forward to the next date.
It was just meant to be! We both felt like we'd known each other for ages, and even met each other's families within a few weeks (which although sounds strange typing it, felt perfectly natural). Even they all commented on what a great match we were for each other.
Now, 2 years along, after many adventures together, we are now planning the most exciting adventure of our lives and have our wedding date booked for next August 1st 2014, exactly 3 years to the day on which we met. We are getting married on Bournemouth beach, right along from where our first 'meeting' was.
We say to anyone who is unsure of taking the plunge and trying online dating; go for it! You have nothing to lose, and could quite possibly have everything to gain and may just meet that special someone, just like we did.
