How they met and married in two months

Posted by Leticia, 24 May 10

Electra decided to try online dating because she was never a big fan of the club scene. When a certain gentleman reached out to her on the site, it wasn’t long before they were on the phone for an hour...then another hour...and another.  After five hours of great conversation, they finally called it a night. “What stood out for me was his honesty and sincerity,” Electra says of Hal, the man she had bonded with so strongly.

They spoke again the next two nights in a row. By the third day... they had to meet in person. What were their first impressions? “It was love at first sight!” the happy couple declares.

They aren’t exaggerating, either. Electra and Hal’s connection was so intense that the very next day, Hal proposed. Electra’s answer was yes. She says their plans for the future are simply “to love one another forever and a day.”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

It looks as though this pair are on their way to doing just that. Just two months after that first five-hour phone call…Electra and Hal became man and wife.

The club scene has its charms, but for Electra—a single in search of something meaningful—online dating was the way to go.

    Well, when you know what you want and know that nobody is perfect, When you know you will be able to accept somebody else in your life with their imperfection because you accept and love yourself with your imperfection. You can be marry in a short time period and live happilly forever. In my opinion and experiences, the time you take to get married doesn't have nothing to do with love and it gives the couple less chances to stay married with each other. When you get married by reasoning or by thinking you find logically the right person after knowing them for years, you are on the track for deception and divorce... Marriage must based on love and acceptance for it to last...and believe me or no, humans don't develop love or more love with time knowing or staying together. What is love? Love is the feeling that you feel for somebody else and that feeling is not depending on your own interest, time, money, social acceptance... you just feel that person is the "only" right person for you and whatever this person imperfection is, you will be both open and willing to change or accept one behaviour for the happiness of each other. I think this couple make the right decision to go for it. Life is too short for us humans to make life too complicated and unbearable to live. Happy dating to all!

    Good for them. I believe if your open and honest about what you want and who you r then when u find that person for you you know it's right. Go for it. No matter how long you know someone or live with someone or date someone you not going to like everything about them. To me being with someone is being committed even when you can't stand the other person at that time if u can do that then it doesn't really matter how long u know a person because your committed to making the relationship work .

      Nobarriers now you just had to go there didn't you, first of all must am happy for Electra and Hal's best of wishes my dears. Now back to you Nobarriers i wish your name was true but because of your comment i can tell that your holding allot back. No one aint perfect we all know that, and while you may not agree that there are such thing as love at first sight there are others who believe in it. My dad fell in love with my mother from the first day he bless his eyes and her she was 14 and he was 18 yrs am 26 yrs old and my parents are hapily married, so plz tell me why there aint no such thing as love as first sight. When you find that love that you want or that love find you then am looking forward to reading your success story nobarriers. We have enough on our hands to find true love and to figure out if that person is being real to us or not etc... dont you think stretching it to as far as an Axe murderer is way to much for us all? yeah we all have to be careful that's why everyone knows first couple of dates in public places where there are people around. Dont be having the mentality that you might get yourself an axe murderer on any site cuz then you only would be holding yourself back from what you can really have and you can fall in love with an axe murderer even at church, positive thinking maybe then it might help you to open up tp love. Fear is a terrible thing.

        My mom was at age 14 my dad was 18yrs he's 63 now and shes 59 they had me when my mom was 28 yrs old so they both know what they wanted,now so tell me who says there aint no such thing as love at first sight... no Barrieres i totally find that your comment is not logical or as a matter of fact correct at all. True love does exist but only a few are lucky enough to find it.

    It's a sad state of affairs when people reach a stage in life where they are so jaded that they cant appreciate love, respect and caring happening for others. We all judge life through the lens of our experiences and believe that is reality or judge harshly when our pain or disappointments have clouded our view. Do we really wish deep down that was us or why not us; wish them well because if its not true on this site it is true in the real world. If it were us, would we be offended because people think so little of heart and intergrity and don't even know us? Sure it seems untrue because it hasnt happened to us; but maybe we missed the opportunity because we were looking for Mr./Ms Right with the wrong heart and state of mind. I personally know several people (my sister is one), who met, dated for 2-3 months, got married and are still married after 15 or 20 years. How many of us know others who did the traditional dating, engagement and didnt stay married less than 5 years or worse those divorced after 20 years (my other sister is one). If anyone can find respect, companionship, friendship, and a healthy dose of lust; God Bless them! I wish them well.

    Awwwwww..........what a cute story :)! I really enjoy reading about interracial couples like this. This guy knew exactly what he wanted and he went full force to get it.......wow what a turn on! Ditto Eve11, I pray that the same happens to me. I know that special guy for me is definitely is out there somewhere. I just haven't meant him yet but I'm anxiously waiting :)!

    May they were honest from the very start with each other. Maybe they gave it a chance to become more than a flirt or IM?Seems to me that if you recieve 10,000 or more fews something should happen... I'm just saying

    I say god bless them, and may they have 20+ years. I know it will happen for me, I just have to stay patience. Something we all should practice. We all heard the the saying "good things comes to those who wait."

    its a beauitful story,its not cuz they are older,its about knowing what you want and they knew that when they found each other..those who date for a very longtime are never sure of how they feel for each other and i beilieve when couples wait for so long they are probably afraid of commitment...it doesnt matter whether they are young or old,its about knowing what they want and when you find what you are looking for i dont see any reasons to wait any longer..im very happy for this lovely couple and may they always be happy forever.

    i think it happens differently for different couples. you can't spell out an equation that fits all. anyone who talks shit on the couple is probably jealous. haven't found anyone interested in them for longer than a week.

    I think that when you are older, and you have waited for love long enough, you know what you want. Then, there is really no reason to wait to get married.

    Maybe they were older and wiser and knew what they were looking for in a soulmate so they didn't need all the time that younger people do to make up their mind whether they were the right person to marry or not. I bet they stay married for life and never get divorced!!

    Perhaps the fact that this isn't their first rodeo and likely know what they're seeking might be a factor. They're obviously NOT spring chickens and have been around the block once or twice.
