Kristin and Noah: “…my JDate subscription was about to expire…”
I got home from dinner and there it was: an email telling me my JDate subscription was about to expire and asking if I wanted to renew. It was the end of my first month of online dating, and while I wasn’t exactly a believer just yet, I decided I had nothing to lose and signed up for another month.
Almost immediately after confirming my renewal, Noah instant messaged me. We chatted online for hours that night and ended the evening with a phone call. He asked if I would have drinks with him and two nights later we were on our first date – it was the last first date either of us ever went on.
We were practically inseparable from that night on, and two years later we were engaged. About one year after our engagement, on July 2, 2011, we were married. It was exactly three years to the day from our first “JDate”.
Our wedding was more amazing than either of us could have imagined and every day we are together, we love each other more and more. We sometimes wonder what our lives would be like if I hadn’t signed up for that second month of JDate, but fortunately for us, we’ll never have to know.
