Dear JDate,

cont-mt-debra-larryI just wanted to write and tell you about my happily-ever-after tale. Just over a year ago, Larry saw my profile and contacted me. I gave him my phone number, and after talking one night, we made plans for a date. We both are from Long Island, and he lived in Forest Hills, Queens and then moved out about the same time I moved in. He came to meet me for dinner in Forest Hills. We had a great time, and at the end of the night, we made plans for a second date.

Larry and I went on 5 dates in the first week alone. There was something special about him from the beginning. I’m happy to report to you that, this past Saturday, August 23rd, we celebrated our one year anniversary…

Larry had a special day planned and told me it was a surprise. He made me breakfast in bed and then we spent the afternoon in NYC. We had lunch, did some shopping and took a carriage ride through Central Park. We came back to Forest Hills and got dressed for dinner, another surprise location. Larry said we should leave early so we could take a walk before dinner. We walked to the Forest Hills Gardens which is where we went on our first date. After a little walking, Larry stopped and started singing to me. Then he asked me to marry him! Even though it was something I knew was coming, because we had discussed it often, I was still shocked and excited. Then Larry had both our families waiting for us at Cabana, the restaurant we went to on our first date!

Everyday I thank JDate for bringing me Larry. I’m now the third one of my friends to have met their spouse on JDate, and I recommend it to everyone!
