He couldn't believe she was real

Posted by Leticia, 08 Jun 11

When it comes to affairs of the heart, being proactive is the best policy.  As this story demonstrates, every move you make might be the one that finally takes you where you want to go.

Deep down, Steven knew the only place to find his true love was on a niche site like ours.  “Other services just hadn’t worked for me,” Steven says.  Meanwhile, Imelda was also looking for someone special to share her life with.  A friend had success on our site and recommended it to her, so Imelda took the plunge.

In this case, it was the woman who reached out to the man.  Something about Steven’s eyes told Imelda that he was the man for her.  “It took me over a week to respond to her!”  Steven recalls, incredulously.  “I was reluctant at first to believe that she was who she said she was.  Her photos were so adorable, genuine and beautiful.  But shy: vulnerable, even.”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Dreading disappointment but not wanting to miss a potentially once-in-a-lifetime shot at love, Steven called Imelda.  He remembers that call making quite an impression on him.  “I was hooked completely, head over heels in love at first chat!”

Before meeting in person, they spoke on the phone many more times and emailed constantly.  The couple met for pancakes as a first date.  Seeing Steven waiting for her with a huge bunch of flowers, it took Imelda several minutes to work up the courage to approach him.  “I was overwhelmed,” Steven said of his thoughts upon seeing Imelda in person for the first time.  “When I saw her with her hair all done, dressed so fine, the most beautiful smile…I was speechless.  I just felt like she was out of my league.”

Their meal turned into a walk, a picnic in the park, and a visit to a bar.  “We just sat together, falling in love so quickly and deeply,” Imelda says.  This great date only set the table for many more.

Over time, Steven was delighted to discover the Imelda behind her shy reserve.  The Imelda that loves to giggle, to dance, and to take good care of her man.  “I love her joie de vivre, her attitude about life,” Steven says.  “I still pinch myself to this day to check to see if I’m dreaming or not!”

Imelda agrees that their connection runs deep.  “The openness I have with him is something I’ve never experienced before,” she says.  “There’s nothing hidden, no secrets, we’re just true to each other.”

Today, the couple are engaged to be married and happily planning their future together.  They consider themselves best friends first, lovers second.  “We’ll be supporting each other every step of the way, through good times and bad,” promises Steven.

    Hey fellas, common now this is a success story we should all delighting in! The fact that Steve has his hand on his lady's boob should'nt be reason to suspect he is a one timer. Maybe most of you ladies & gentlemen missed the point: these two are ENGAGED...l don' t know what else can make you believe that Steve is a serious dude. We all need love on this site and turning into bitter mini- haters is good. Wish them two lover birds luck.

    Steve and Imelda are nice people, saying this as i know Ste personally he was so happy with his find that he wants all his friends to find love too (he introduced me to the site). He loves her so much that he cant function without her, there is nothing tacky about them, i am sure he posted that 'booby grab' pic to show her he loves that feature about her, when did that become a crime, people why not read his sucess story and be happy for them and hope to find love as strong or even stronger than theirs, instead of posting negative comments on their story... no one is on here for a thesis research i believe...people are on here to find love, be happy for someone who has found his and maybe, just maybe yours is around the corner....to the lady who said they both look 'special', that innuendo is not lost on people and its not a nice thing to say about people, they look special but they found love together and you are reading their sucess story while still on the dating site, should that tell you something about yourself? com' n Anywayi am happy for my friend and his betrothed(now wife)

    Excuse me. Did I miss something here? MEN are looking for what MEN look for and a lot of WOMEN are looking for a quick roll. THAT is why if you are an honest and decent woman looking for love you really don't want to jump in the sack without knowing the guy. There are a LOT of "P," problems out there and men, in general, do not like to wear raincoats. Online, they get what I call, "Kid in a Candy Store Syndrome." A little boy (or girl) is set in a candy store--BIG PERSON up above dropping all sorts of beautifully-wrapped, sweet candies in. There is one key to get out of the store and it is hidden in the very best piece of candy, which the kid holds in one hand but he never gets the chance to really taste it because That BIG PERSON up top keeps dropping more and more tempting piieces of candy in there until...You guessed it. The kid loses track, loses his grip and accidentally loses the only piece of candy that held the key. The kid is left in a sea of unwanted candies to try and wondering how in the heck he lost that ONE special beautiful candy that held the key. It isn't the fault of which website or races or what men want or what women want. The problem lies with indecision. People come here confused and unstable and that is how they remain unless they address their own, personal issues first. In order for somebody to love you and want to make a life with you, you need to be stable--constant and true to your path. It doesn't mean dating one person exclusively at a time but what it DOES mean is knowing when you have found that ONE and not letting go. This is a basis for more and more success stories.

    P.S. One last thing, please. Because I date outside my race I receive MORE lashings, more abuse from females (limited to only one race) who claim there are not enough men in their race who want to date them--that white women are taking them all--MORE THREATS to be beaten up--than any silent, kind, caring and sweet; compassionate, intelligent and caring woman I know. This attitude really needs to change. If people are going to date outside their race--one thing is true; it really should be for a, "right," reason and not for the sheer pleasure of just being that one piece of fruit that rots the entire barrel or that one person who upsets the harmony of the whole basket of, "good."

    Get over it...white men are here to fulfill their haunting fantasy..big ass and boobs. Some honest guys have told me that! similary, black guys are here to patch up their insecurity..looking for pale skin...and possibly a bitch that can tirelessly give them a "head". I would say this is not a "normal" world. But i think their are people like me who have all the right reasons to be here..lol.

      I think on this site it goes without saying that everyone here is looking to fulfill a fantasy. I am, you are, he is, she is. Maybe most white men on here are only seeking a black woman for a quick hookup and quick departure, it's something we all have to accept about men in general; but I'm a real woman looking for love and whether it's true or not , I'm just sick of hearing that i'm worthless to ALL white men outside of an instance of casual sex. It's brutal, disheartening and ultimately unnecessary because I can find out for myself what a man's real intentions are. Besides, if it were true then we wouldn't be commenting on a thread about the success story about a black woman and white man who has found real love together.

      I totally agree with you it will always be someone that do not agree with a story that is what makes us different so for me it was a sweet story with a happy ending i do not see the negative only the positive. What god has planned for you is for you and i wish them both the best.

    I think some of you are focusing on the wrong thing here. Read the story, if you like it, great, if it pains you so much to see this man's hand on her breast, then by all means move on to another story. But lets not beat a dead horse here. For crying out loud, its just a photo, obviously they were fine with the picture being posted. I wish them well. Shotgun

    Maybe this works for the couple...'grabbing the boob'. Just because the couple took a photo like that and shared with us all doesn't necessarily mean its a scam or they have a negative relationship. She isn't complaining, and I'm sure he isn't either. If we are all looking for that special someone in our lives and we find them, are we going to shoot it the person down over something like this...'Boob grabbing'. The couple seems to be happy, and having a lot of fun. So lets be happy for them and celebrate their love.
