"It's just coffee...."
I had been single for many years. I started internet dating in 2006 and had had a couple of 20 month relationships in recent times. However, I was determined to find a joyful, authentic, commited relationship. Despite feeling daunted at times by the whole dating experience I figured it was worth it to keep perservering... Wayne had not dated since his first marriage ended several years ago. He went online a couple of weeks before we met and was upfront that he was wanting to experience dating, but that his intention was for a long-term relationship. I went back onto POF and experimented for the first time with the 'would like to meet' feature. I saw Wayne's profile and his joyfulness oozed out....so I clicked 'maybe' not realising he'd be sent a 'she would like to meet you' message by POF! So that day he got back to me ...and I thought 'oh well it's only coffee...' 9 months later, after our honeymoon, we still just laugh and say 'it's only coffee'! We've both been surprised by the ease, joy and flow we experience with each other. Our love just grows daily. I am so glad I held out and perservered....it is better than I had ever hoped for. And if it wasn't for POF we may never have met... so thank you POF for the 'maybe' button and 'it's just coffee...' So go on...hit the 'maybe' button...it's just coffee....
