Low expectations turned into high hopes

Posted by Leticia, 04 Oct 11

High hopesAlex was frustrated with the dating scene in his town. Laurel had just moved and didn’t know anyone in her area. Both were curious about online dating. So they joined our site…

“I never took online dating all that seriously,” Laurel concedes. “I thought I might find people to talk to, but I never thought I’d find my soulmate this way.”

Alex didn’t have high expectations, either. He had been on and off the site for a couple of years without any huge breakthroughs in his love life.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

After she’d been on the site for about six months, Laurel’s profile captured Alex’s attention. Reading her words, he could tell “she had a good head on her shoulders.” Alex wrote to Laurel and their correspondence convinced her to have dinner with him.

“He was incredibly respectful, and genuinely interested in getting to know me,” Laurel says. On their date, Alex’s first thought was that Laurel seemed taller than he expected and “better looking than in her pictures.”

Alex and Laurel

By the end of the evening, the Alex and Laurel connection had really clicked. “I was blown away by how strongly I was attracted to him and his personality,” she says. “I hadn’t felt anything like it before.”

As their relationship progressed, Laurel found that Alex wasn’t just putting on a good show for a date or two. He was the real deal. “He treats me so well. I feel so blessed to have found him!”

The more Alex got to know Laurel, the more he imagined their future together. “She has a good heart and a genuine personality,” he says. “She isn’t fake or sneaky.” It was clear to Alex that Laurel had all the traits he was looking for in a lifelong partner.

When Alex popped the question, you can imagine what Laurel’s answer was. She’s very excited at the prospect of marrying her man! Alex is delighted that our site exceeded his wildest expectations. And we’re proud to have played our small part in their happiness.

    I have given up hope, even changed the info in my profile to "seeking friends only". But I read your story and I know that someone, somewhere is going to love me, too. I deserve a good man and I know he's out there. You two are a beautiful couple. I hope you become each other's best friend and live a long life full of happiness and passion.

    I urge the site to keep on the good job. Just imagine how Laurel had alsmost called it quits and how about Alex had tried for a couple of years without any breakthrough.The two match. May the good Lord help and keep you happy in our marriage. God bless you Laurel and Alex.

    I almost gave up, thinking that no one who fits what I am looking for will come across my way, but after reading your story along with others, I have decided to stay on the site and continue to hope that one day, I may come across the profile of the woman of my dreams on here. Congratulations to you both.
