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…”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

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!”

    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.

    I work at a car rental and can attest to online dating working because of the number of people that come here to get married and when asked how they met I'm suprised at how many tell me about meeting on line - YEAH for online meetings

    I am so happy for the both of you. I haven't met anyone from this site that I wanted to be with yet. It seems this site has more younger people than people of age. I read a lot of profiles on here, and chatted with some of the guys. Most guys want to experiment with black women.. some only want sex....and some are serious. I have yet to find that special man to share the rest of my life with. So to all that have found your true mate....Congrats.....and may God bless you to stay together forever.

    You are so right, it is hard to tell who is genuine and who is not. You do get some bad ones I have experienced that. Congrats Mark and Tyann!!!!!! perhaps there is still some God fearing Christians on this site after all. God Bless and may God continue to Bless your union.

    Oh my goodness so this is real? Most of the men esp both the black Americans and whites always just want to see me naked and they are real perverts, wanting to show their dirty dicks. Didn't know there are serious men on this site. Congratulations Mark and your wife to be am so happy for the both of you.

    Congrats to you Mark and your soulmate. I wished you both all the best. However, it appears that the majority of men on this site are not interested in finding a life partner. Most are game players or just looking for a hook up. Many are not interested in finding love with someone of the opposite race. It is just hard to decipher between those who are genuine and those who are simply seeking to satisfy their curiosity.

    I am happy to find out that there are some happy endings on these sites. I wish the happy couple all the best. If only it could be like that for the rest of us who are alone and looking for a partner. Hopefully people will decide to take a chance and send a personal message and not rely on the flirt to do all the work. God bless

    This is a great inspiration. Emails are so much better than flirts especially, you are really interested in a person. To all the guys/girls who see someone they really like and make that first contact, Cheers to your hearts desire!!!

    It's funny! that women don't reply much to flirts on site while in the real world women are the biggest flirts on the planet. While a message hits the heart where the arrow has been sent to hit the mark.
