One love for a lifetime

Posted by Leticia, 25 May 11

Joy was a busy career woman who tried to suppress her loneliness for as long as possible.  She told herself that she didn’t have time for fun and dating because there was always more work to be done.  But over time, thoughts of the life she wanted kept running through her mind.

Unable to ignore her happiness any longer, Joy bought an online dating membership. After looking at one dating profile after another, she came to understand just what she was looking for in a relationship.  Finding something meaningful became a priority for her.  “I was looking for an articulate, intelligent profile,” Joy says.  “Someone as serious about sealing the deal as I was.”

Isaac was also ready for a commitment.  This came through in his profile, which had the heading “One Love for a Lifetime.”  The essays presented Isaac’s belief that the secret to an ideal romantic partnership is teamwork.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

“His profile was carefully written and edited,” Joy notes.  “Even spell-checked!”

The pair now considers their anniversary the day Isaac first sent Joy a rose, though they did not meet in person for another nine days.  Over that span, they shared a feverish email correspondence that fanned the flames of courtship.  “Now, when I read those early emails, it’s clear that we fell in love even before we met,” Joy says.

On the tenth day, it was time to stop writing emails and talking on the phone.  The time had come to see if their chemistry carried over to real life.  Happily, Joy was impressed with Isaac from moment one.  “I saw a tall, distinguished man with beautiful eyes, and the ability to communicate from the soul,” she recalls.  They talked for over an hour, looking into each other’s eyes the whole time.  Their ensuing dates were very much the same, or better.

Today, the couple reports that they spend every waking and sleeping moment together except when they are at work.  “We cook dinner together, do laundry together, go to flea markets together, have yard sales together…” Joy laughs.  “We are unofficially engaged and expect to make it official very soon.”

Any two people must adapt to one another’s lifestyles in order to fully mesh as a couple.  Joy and Isaac were more than willing to do that, and it looks as though their commitment might sustain a lifelong love.

    Isaac and Joy, I enjoyed reading your storyl it sort of made me teary in that in this economy, in this country, two separate and individual people who can meet up online and find true love. That is and was a terrific story. I wish you two continued happiness and love for the future. Like so many women Joy on dating sites, all are trying to stay ahead of the game, but can't understnad men who don't like that? Sure, I'd love to give all of my attention to one man, but its hard being independent and raising a young man on my own. I was raised to take care of what's mine and not depend on anyone else to do it. I wonder smetimes if working, is all that its cracked up to be, smile. I seem to have missed the last nince years of my life doing it. I have tried sites before and gotten no where not really wanting to put myself out there any more. For me is a computation of things, but for you I can see your happiness so it was meant to be. Working a lot has its drawbacks, smile. I like what I do, make a great living doing it and wonder swhy it turns off so many men. Your story gives me hopw, and allows me to see that Chance is everywhere, you just have to put yourself out there and hope for the best. Looks like you two hit the nail on the head. Congratulations!! My prayers are with you both. Phyllis

    Congratulations to Joy and Isaac. Joy you were wise to take back your life from your career and seek after the love of your life. I was not that wise, I got engulfed in my career and now it is really difficult to see the trees from the forest. Some men say I am too strong, some think I am, all I can think is you made the right decision at the right time. Good luck to both you and Isaac, may you both grow deeper and deeper in love.

    It says it all that it was deep in them and it was time for them to potray it out of their inside to their outer part. the previous was that they had not found each other to express the feelings they both had.(that afro part) i like the fact that we at times never know what we miss. but when we do, its a beautifull feeling. i will heartfully wish Joy and Isaac a happy ENDING to their heart's desire.Thank God for what you feel together.
