In the summer of 2007, I joined JDate while separated and going through a divorce. I had been married for many years, and had been out of the dating scene for a very long time.
I entered certain search criteria for the type of woman I was looking for and began my search. I met several women and went on several dates, but nothing really clicked.
A few months later, I got a message from this beautiful woman asking me, “Why haven’t you found me yet?” As it turns out, she was several years younger than my search criteria, and I had not seen her profile. Her name was Loni and she is almost 12 years younger than me.
We met for a drink in September of 2007, and soon began dating. I knew from the beginning that there was something special about Loni. The rest is history.
I finally proposed in March of 2011. When I proposed, I carved “Dan loves Loni” inside a heart into a big tree near a lake. I took her out to the tree upon some pretext, and proposed to her by the tree.
We are getting married in May of 2012.
Loni is the love of my life. We turned out to be a perfect match for each other. Loni is smart, beautiful, independent, and willing to put up with me. I want to thank JDate for helping us find each other… actually, she found me. We are very much in love and are truly happy.
