Ruthie and Barry

Dear JDate,

cont-mt-ruthie-barryI never imagined what would happen when I put my profile on JDate. I had been divorced for almost 14 years, and though I’d been involved in several relationships, I’d never found the “right one.” Imagine, 50-years-old and single. Actually, I had pretty much decided to stop looking. I had pretty much decided that being alone was OK. My life was full with my friends, my job and my family. But then, one day in November, I received an email from a man, Barry, who would make my world do a 180 degree spin.

We communicated on the Internet for a while, then on the phone. We finally met in person in January and both of us knew right away that there was something very special between us. I remember when I was a child I asked my mom: How I would know if I was with the right man? She told me, “If it’s right, you’ll know.” Well, guess what? After 50 years, I finally know!!

Barry and I went out to restaurants, coffee houses, Blues’ games, and spent time at home enjoying cooking with and for each other. Barry took me on a surprise weekend trip to Jupiter, Florida, so that I could see my favorite baseball team (Cardinals) play a spring training game. And I took him to one of my favorite state parks for some trout fishing. And then, at a very romantic little bistro, he asked me to marry him and, of course, I said yes.

We plan to be married sometime after the first of the year. We want to thank JDate for bringing us together. Life truly is amazing.

Thank you JDate!
