The first date that never ended

Posted by Leticia, 29 Nov 10

Mark’s co-worker had good things to say about online dating, so he was convinced to give it a try.  While Mark wanted to meet a great woman, this was all new to him, so he took a passive approach at first.  He didn’t search for promising profiles and relied on women to make the first contact.

One night, Mark was checking his email and, on a whim, decided to do a quick search on our site.  For some reason, a particular photo and the accompanying essay spoke to him.  “She had a beautiful smile,” Mark notes.  “Like an angel handed down from heaven.”  Based on what Tyann wrote, he sensed she had a warm and caring personality as well.  Mark decided to change his strategy from “defense” to “offense,” put himself out there, and see what happened.

Mark sent Tyann a flirt.  A few minutes later, he realized that a personalized email would be even better.  She replied to his email almost immediately.  “After talking a few times, we made a first date,” Mark remembers.  “We met for dinner and a drink…”

The couple-to-be hit it off immediately, so neither was in a hurry to break the spell and leave the restaurant.  When the place closed, they went to a nearby tavern and continued their conversation there.  When the tavern closed—at four in the morning—these smitten singles just went out to the parking lot and kept talking for another hour.  Finally, as the sun came up, they parted ways at last!

Not long after their epic first date, Mark and Tyann began seeing each other exclusively.  They’ve been together ever since.

“She’s an inspiration to me!” says Mark of his beloved partner.  “We see a long, happy future together.”  They’ve introduced their children to one another on group outings and go to church together.

Mark is grateful for what his decision to date online has brought into his life.  “Thank you for playing a part in our success story,” he says.  “She makes me smile every day!”

    Oooo!!!! This is a great couple - so matching. I have been amused the way they met and how they moved from one place to another until the sun... Wish you a happy and longterm love. This clearly shows that it is never too late and God's love cannot take you where it cant protect you. God bless the couple.

    Whatever you face or go through in life the most important thing is your attitude towards it. If you are the type that lets troubles get you down and make you miserable then you need to change. I am not saying that you should smile and celebrate when problems come your way, no. However being miserable and gloomy doesnt help either does it? A problem should be handled for exactly what it is; a problem.

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!
