I went on Match.com at the urging of one of my best girl friends, one of her friends met her husband through a similar site and she thought it was worth a try. After 3 weeks on the site I started talking to a young, cute, single dad who lived about 50 miles from me. After emailing back and forth and several long phone conversations, he asked me on a date.
I was nervous to go meet someone in person I had only talked with online but I had a good feeling about him. He seemed so sweet and we had talked on the phone for hours. We decided to meet at Starbucks. He didn't have a cell phone so we set a meeting time at a Starbucks about halfway between both our houses. I showed up and waited and waited and waited and then checked my phone only to realize I had a voicemail from him saying he was at Starbucks and was wondering if he was at the right one. I didn't even realize there were two in the area! I quickly called my sister (who lived in the area) and got directions to the other Starbucks. Luckily I made it to the other Starbucks before he decided he had been stood up.
And the rest is history...
