Dana & Richard, Married 1/2012

"This one is real"
We were both approaching 50 and feeling lonely, but we were extremely hesitant to trust anyone. Both of us were still reeling from two horrible marriages and divorces each. Neither of us wanted to remarry EVER. But we wanted companionship. We met on POF. We lived only 10 minutes apart. We had our first meeting at Starbucks and I don't even like coffee but he had them make me a very sweet cup. For the second date he reread my profile and suggested a picnic. I love picnics and hadn't been on one with a man in 30 years. It was perfect - he cooked chicken and brought {what he thought} were my favorite foods. He even brought a loaf of bread to feed the ducks and they showed up at the perfect moment. Before long we were inseperable. One morning in November he spontaneously popped the question and I spontaneously said yes! We got married on New Year's Day in our backyard with an intimate group of family and friends. I often think I dreamt him up - we are a perfect match. My son adores him. We are both certain we will be together and in love forever! This photo was taken on our fairytale honeymoon cruise through the Norwegian Fjords - not bad for 50!
