In February, Shahar and I had our first date. We have spent almost every moment since then together. He was born in Israel and was living in Plano, Texas (two blocks from where I grew up) on a work visa. I was living in Prairie, Texas, about 45 minutes away.
After about a month, both of us decided we would not date other people, and after three months, we said “I love you.” At 5:30 a.m. (sunrise, the English meaning of Shahar’s name), at the King David hotel in Jerusalem, Shahar asked me to marry him, and I said YES.
I grew up hearing of storybook romances, but never thought I would meet my prince. Thanks to JDate, I have met him. My nickname for him is “Nasich,” which means prince in Hebrew.
We are enjoying being engaged, and we will be moving in together in February around our one year anniversary. Now we have the wedding date to choose and the wedding to plan. One of the reasons we both joined the site was because of the success stories we read. We would be honored if you would share our story. We cannot thank you enough for the greatest gift either of us have ever received… each other.
Thank you again,
Tali & Shahar
Grand Prairie and Plano, Texas
