Grateful for His Second Chance

Posted by Leticia, 16 Mar 11

Kim certainly didn’t expect to meet someone special who lived overseas.  In fact, he thought he had configured his on-site settings to screen out international singles.  But somehow, “Angelsmile78” got through to him all the way from England.  “I wasn’t expecting much other than a neat conversation with an English gal,” he says.  “However, as I talked to her, I began realizing how small my world truly was.”

While Kim had never set foot off American soil, “Angelsmile78” was quite the traveller.  Her real name was Neapah and she was from Jamaica originally.  “Even though she was younger than me, she had seen and done so much,” Kim says.  He was a bit intimidated and didn’t realize until later that it came off as arrogance.

Many online introductions might have ended there.  But Kim persevered.  He really liked this girl and hoped she would give him a second chance.  “I kept opening myself up to her, even made a video for ‘us’ and finally got a response back,” Kim says, relieved.  “We figured out where I had gone wrong and put it behind us.”

Kim and Neapah began communicating frequently through a variety of means.  For his first trip outside the U.S., Kim booked a flight to London to visit Neapah on her birthday.  In the course of his week-long stay in the U.K., the couple fell deeply in love.

It was painful for Kim to leave but once he did, he used Skype to correspond with his sweetheart.  This helped them keep the torch lit over their long months apart.  After several months of what Kim calls an “E-engagement,” the couple were married in Gretna Green, Scotland.  “It was very much a storybook wedding that will always be filled with fond memories for re-telling,” Kim beams proudly.

Kim adds that our website was instrumental in the happiness he now shares with Neapah.  “It brought two very different people together from 4000 miles apart!”

All in a day’s work, Kim!  Congratulations.

    Congratulations to the happy couple, you look well together! For those who think their love or wedding should not be, it is obvious they are still living in the bacra masa days (Slavery). Its 2012 move forward, get a life and if it hurts so much to see two people who are in love happy whether it be white or black, then that is the reason some of you are still on here for over a decade and still cannot find the person who connects with you. I take great offense to this criticism because I am Jamaican by birth. Those who are bashing this couple know nothing about them, maybe you all need to take a trip to Jamaica and see how diverse our Island is. Our motto is OUT OF MANY WE ARE ONE, which means we do not see color in individuals we see humans and though some might be lighter than others, we are all equals as humans and as Jamaicans. Have all you haters thought of giving off positive vibes to everyone you meet? Maybe if you do this you would not be on here the length of time you have, and still have not found anyone to date? This is a new world and people preferences in their mats are not based upon what their neighbor, family or friends views anymore, its based on who they are happy with. These couples along with many others have found love on this site, and are happy living their lives. So why don't we all just encourage each other, and if your own race is what you like, by all means date them, but do not criticize those who have different preference from you. Give constructive criticism you will be surprise how fast you will find a soul mate when you start to generate this kind of vibes. Start by saying No Problem man.

    Wow this is a touching story,you can see that these people are in love. The reason why some haters say the comments they say is because they have never been in love in their miserable lives however they will meet their bitter rivals too soon. l wish that couple the best and man you choose well she is perfect.

    For sure, with Kim and Neapah's story demonstrate that they came to the website determined! It further concludes, with love nothing is impossible - no barrier imagine Kim had never left USA soil but for the woman he loved, he had to go out and get her. Thanks Kim for having taken that step. With love, the sky is the only limit. May the God who made this happen keep your love stronger for ever and ever. God bless your marriage abundantly.

    Best wishes. They took their time, no whirlwind. They seem mature and well grounded their love is not based on lust they are going to be married for the long run. By the way, of all the interracial couples that I know, the bw/wm have been married the most. WM and BW have much in common, and the very qualities that some small minded BM call aggressive, WM call determined. The reason why WM aren't commenting much on this thread is they are busy emailing me, lol. Let me get back to you later. :)

      @bahianut, fill out your entire profile. Say more upbeat, positive stuff. Your photos are mixed, some look old some new but mainly they don't really look consistant. Take new photos, daub on a little more lipgloss. Read Evan Marc Katz and more dating sites. You are pretty, just have to be more positive, at fresh photos. speak of what you want, avoid the negative. Good luck.

    @denilson.. if you are so big on dating your own race why are you on an INTERRACIAL dating site? Why can't you just be happy instead of judging and being rude. To people you don't even know. She picked him over you because even though you think you look better in your opinion his attitude has to be better than yours, because yours sucks!! Why can't people just be happy for people anymore? Why do you have to be such a hater. It amazes me how many ignorant people are on this site. Once again if you do not accept interracial dating why the hell are you on this site?? UGHHH negative people piss me off..

      @Deilson 2000 I saw your profile you're another bitter black babydaddy, bitter as heck. go take care of your kid or better yet marry a white women as you are obcessed with them! Your bitterness is very clear and obvious. Imma tell you straight: you are afraid of completing with white men for women. Too bad. Step up your game, go back to school but dude all on this board you are tell the world how insecure you are.

      I am a wm senior citizen that will answer your question.. You don't rant about the 12% of the brothers who are marrying white women because you feel you are getting even with the white man. Then you get upset when the white man finds black women attractive and date and marry them you play the race card on the black woman. To all bw out there date whomever you want that will make you happy. Either date out or die out.

    Jim Bassett: How dare you call any human being a mongrel. Who are you to call any person a mongrel. Do you live in a glass house? Be very careful. Your negativity and possible hatred will inventually swallow you up and destroy you. Shame on you. Blessings to this couple. I'm happy for anyone who finds the special one in their lives.

    This is an amazing story! It just goes to show that, "never giving up on something" is truly a blessing! It's about always taking a chance as a person has "nothing to lose and everything to gain". That's why I'm on this site to truly find that special someone whether he is close by or far away! All the Best! :)

      Jim Bassett, God made all human beings no matter what color they are. It is very sad and hurtful to others when the Jim Bassetts' of this world refuse to face and respect that fact. How would you like for someone to call you or your family mongrels or to insinuate such? You came into this world an innocent baby and look what someone did to you. Of all the positive, helpful, and good things someone should and could have taught a young child, that person or those people filled a young innocent boy with hatred. What if you were hated because of the color of your skin, southern, northern, blue eyes, brown eyes, kinky hair, blond hair, no hair, fat, skinny, crazy, short, tall, and the list goes on--You get it. Even though you know better and you are a mature man, you have shown by your comment about this interracial couple that you are programmed and controled by it.. Remember, babies and young chidren are not naturally racist or prejudice. Hateful relatives or friends teach young children early in life and reinforce these ideas. Most children mature into adulthood and recognize the lies, change, and confront their parents. But some continue the lies even though they know the truth. Every time you say or think degrading, inhumane, or inappropriate remarks about anyone, listen to yourself because it's coming from your heart or spirit and that's an unhealthy state of mind. For example, what if someone didn't like your mom or dad because they are old, have gray hair, need assistance, or just because they don't like senior citizens, and decided to cause harm to them. Would that type of discrimination againt your parents be any different than the discrimination you expressed in your comment? It's all hurtful, and you don't even know this couple. What if, you accidentally got lost in what some call "the wrong neighborhood?"Or, visited a foreign country where the people are hostile toward and openly express dislike of Americans no matter what color they are. In both instances you would be the victim, and depending on the circumstance, it could be harmful or life threating if no one rescrued you. This has happen to people here and abroad, and that's got to very alarming. Think about living like this every day of your life in America, with people who think like you do--you can't imagine how that feels. I wish you could just feel it for one year. Maybe then you would be more considerate of other people. I will pray for you, because it's not all your fault that you think this way. Remember, we all breathe the same air, and we can't get any closer than that. So let us respect, protect. and wish each other well. If you are reading this comment, then thank you Jim Bassett.

        dear tina there is no better way of saying what needed 2 b said. I commned you 4 the way you worded what had 2 b said 4 his sake we r what we r taught & thats a shame.I myself was raised by very bigoted grand parents,tho my parents were alittle less racial, I still felt the need 2 judge people by who & what type of people they are , not by color, wealth, or any of the things people are judged by. Im not rich & most of the people in my life aren'f either but at least I can hold my head high knowing I a better person than the ones that had such a shallow mindset that wanted 2 poisin me in my early years. I love your honesty & bluntness. The world would b a much better place if we all had the same feelings toward each other ,that you shared thank you

      My first reaction to your comment is one of sadness.How awful for you to be filled with feelings that would lead you to use such unfriendly language.When God created the world he created all things with perfection and that is how each and every one of us starts our journey in life.I dont know what happened to you along the way,but unless you go back to your humble beginnings and know were are all equal as human beings despite what we have ,where we live or the colour of our skin. Thank God we dont all look the same or think the same and i smiled when i read the couples love story .How great for them to have met each other , life is just wonderful the way we never know what is around the corner.When i read your comment it made me feel sad.Someone with your attitude can not engage in such a loving relationship as theirs and you are cheating yourself of the happiness that comes from accepting others for who they are and being accepted yourself for who you are.LONG LIFE AND HAPPINESS TO ALL XX

      This pic does not mean they are wealthy. Come on! Have you not been to a very nice wedding? One that parents pay for or that real people who work hard save money and decide to spend some on a wedding? Give me a break. I am a well educated female with money that I work hard to save. If I get married I might just pour some of it into a nice wedding. I am in no way wealthy just well off. Positive attracts positive. Think about that. That's real life also.

    Beautiful love story I am glad things worked out for the both of them.,don't let time pass you by when you want to make something happen. Life is to short to not to be able to enjoy it. Don't ever let distance be an issue when you set your eyes on the prize. We never know where or how we meet someone to fall in love with. God wants us to be happy. Don't take life for granted. Live as if it's your last. Love is a Many Splendon Thing. Peace,Joy and Love always.

Coaching Testimonial

"The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience"

Submitted by: Karen, USA, 34

My Dating Coach really took the time to go through my profile thoroughly. First she viewed my pictures and gave me great feedback.

She read through the written portion of my profile, line by line, and gave direct feedback on how to add my personality to it.

My amazing consultant, even asked how my contacts where going and offered a few suggestions to increase my interactions with new men.

I took her advice and made the suggested adjustments.

I have received more contact from men, more views, and have started communicating with more people which was the whole point of joining the site in the first place.

The Coaching Service served as an incredible perk and has really enhanced my online dating experience. Thanks!
