I headed to the sushi restaurant nervous and excited. A week of heavy texting had created much anticipation for my first meeting with Ian. Would it be as easy in person? Would conversation flow? Would there be a spark? We hadn’t spoken on the phone… what would his voice be like? Ian was the first guy I spoke with after recently re-activating my JDate account. I had been on countless “disaster dates” in the past.
I arrived, and there he was, waiting outside for me with pink roses. Not only was Ian more handsome than his profile photos, but his warm and engaging personality set the tone for a great night. As the weeks went by, we spent a lot of time together and decided to be in a relationship. We got to know each other’s families and friends, traveled, and – after an amazing year together – Ian proposed marriage.
We are planning a wedding for late next year. Thank you, JDate!
Jill and Ian
