Not All the Fireworks Were in the Sky

Posted by Leticia, 21 Jun 12

Today, Narobi and Jean-Francois are happily married. But not so long ago, they were sad singles without the sense that something special was in store for them. “I was tired of all the disappointments from regular dating,” admits Narobi. “I tried other sites, but yours was better.”

So she created a profile and waited. For three months, nothing happened. Enter Jean-Francois. He too was down on his luck in love. “I was not confident at all,” says Jean-Francois. “I thought it was all fun and games [online]. I was not looking for love, more for friends.”

But he found more than a friend in Narobi. Just a week into his membership, Jean-Francois noticed her profile. She had an unusual username. “I emailed ‘cherrykee,’” says Jean-Francois. “She was very beautiful and seemed easy going. She is very similar to what I have always liked, but very different from me.”

Receiving the email, Narobi looked up Jean-Francois’ profile. It’s not that he was unappealing, but nor was he exactly what she expected from her future husband. She says Jean-Francois was “not at all similar to what I thought I liked. The complete opposite, to be honest! But it turned out to be exactly what I needed.”

Intrigued enough to see where this went, Narobi replied to the message and the pair began a correspondence. That went well. “We were texting a lot, so I figured it was time for a real date,” Narobi explains. So they spent some time together in the flesh. One thing that really impressed Narobi was her date’s manners. “He was a true gentleman. Very nice to talk to… and to look at! It was the 4th of July, and sparks were in the air immediately. I was very sure we would go out again.”

It wasn’t just Narobi who felt the fireworks going off between them. The date didn’t disappoint Jean-Francois, either. “She was very beautiful! The conversation just flowed for hours. She was so easy to talk to. I had the feeling we’d known each other for a very long time.”

One thing Narobi didn’t pick up from Jean-Francois’ dating profile was his way with words. She singles out for praise “his ability to communicate, even though we are from two different parts of the world.”

While Jean-Francois was pushing his vocabulary to the limit, he acknowledges that Narobi was a receptive listener. “Narobi was very patient and understanding of me having a different first language,” notes Jean-Francois.

The more the couple got to know each other, the more they were able to overcome their cultural differences. They developed a connection far more profound than mere language can convey. In time, Narobi and Jean-Francois made the decision to cohabitate. “After we moved in together, I got down on one knee in our living room and asked her to be my wife. She accepted, making me the happiest man on Earth. It’s the first time in my life that I have known real love. The love that we have is awesome, great and unexplainable.”

“I never knew real love existed before him,” adds Narobi. “But now I’m living my fairy tale life.”

We asked Narobi if she had any encouraging words for the singles still on our site. “Yes,” she replied. “If you’re looking for real love, this site is the place to find it!” Jean-Francois chimes in, “This is where I found my true love!”

    I am struggling to believe any of what I saw was real . All you need is a beach , a wedding dress + grooms suit ,a couple of nice looking young models and a photographer . Where are the other guests , its empty of feeling , there is no emotion .

    What a lovely story. I wish them well, many happy returns to you both. As for you folk's who said you are jealous....relax. God can't move the universe in your favor when your holding on to negative feelings. Take a deep breath and know that "mister perfect for you" is out there and getting ready to enter your life. I do, because after being widowed for so long.....I'm ready.

    It is a very beautiful story. I just have to point out that it seems like all the love stories I have read are from people in other countries. Of course I hope all the best for them, and I don't want to take away from their love, but these people have very little in common with me. What are the statistics for someone like me meeting a nice guy on this site?

    I agree, this is a great ending and happily everafter is my wish for them. Real lasting love is hard to find and comes to those of us who are extremely lucky. May God bless your 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!
