Success Story: Phyllis and Grapjas

Posted by Leticia, 25 Aug 06

Just to prove that the internet really does make the world a small place, here's another success story of two people who actually knew each other and finally managed to get together when they found each other again on our site. So don't EVER let distance stop you from finding true happiness...just like grapjas and evoyne.

Here's what Phyllis had to say...

This wonderful site allowed me to get in contact with someone I lost touch with over the years. One night, I was online checking messages & seeing who was online. My breathing was stopped for a mere second because I saw Cor's (grapjas) picture online. I immediately sent him a message & he responded the next day.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

After talking on the phone & catching up, we realized we had to see each other. Two weeks later, Cor flew to the US to see me. I was so nervous as I waited for him to arrive at the airport. When our eyes met, we passionately kissed in the airport as if we were the only people there. We both knew that our love was true & we were not going to let it go again.

Cor, who is my fiance now, lives in Amsterdam. I live in Houston, TX. The distance was irrelevant to us because when you are in love nothing can get in your way of happiness. I have been to The Netherlands twice now, even though I have a fear of flying. And he has been to Houston 4 times. With our wonderful video phones, we talk to & see each other daily without incurring a large phone bill. Our wedding will be next year.

So I want to thank the Interracial Dating site for bringing me back to my one & only true love.

    i was not so sure of this site after many hits and misses, then i met a man, at first i did not want to talk to him because he did not want to post a picture, i went ahead and talk to him any way. Things have turned out so great between us, we communicate outside of this chat, and through emails, and i trully believe that this has turned out great..... there is true love out there, now i believe

    Whoever said that you could not find true love on the net. So many were so wrong. The net gives you a chance to communicate from afar. this sometimes, allows us to focus on the inner strengths and not just the outter physical attraction. I have found this form of dating to be the best and i will not do it any other way. Continue to spread the love and congrats. Angela
