The Rain Couldn't Dampen Their Spirits

Posted by Leticia, 02 Mar 11

Matt and Phrasie knew their soulmate was out there, they just didn’t know it was each other.  But that would change soon enough.  In 2009, Matt noticed Phrasie’s profile on our site and liked that it was simple and straight to the point.  She had a similar reaction to Matt’s profile.  Initially, their conversation was friendly but not romantic.  Their discussion touched on a number of topics, but dating and finding love weren’t among them.  Still, both felt a bond forming.  A date was definitely in order…

One day, Matt left his home in Wisconsin to meet Phrasie in Chicago at around 2 p.m. in the afternoon.  “He said, ‘you are so beautiful,’ Phrasie remembers of their first moments together.  “And I said, ‘you are too!’  We were comfortable with each other pretty quickly.”

It was a rainy day, but the pair decided to walk around downtown Chicago and see the sights.  After Saturday afternoon mass at St. Peter’s, they went to dinner.  Then, on another walk, they passed a movie theater playing Slumdog Millionaire and decided to go in.  At midnight, Matt and Phrasie finally said good night and put an end to this marathon first date after 10 hours together.  It was all very spontaneous, but both had a great time.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Fast forward to September, 12, 2010.  Why makes that date important?  It was Matt and Phrasie’s wedding day!  The couple declares that their future plans are to start a family together.  “We make each other happy!” Phrasie declares.  These two may not have started out romantic, but they certainly ended up that way.

    I wishes them life time happiness may all their dreams come true, and that's what i believe you don't need to spent 90 days to know that you love someone,if a man can spent so many days next to you and not saying anything constructively about future or proposing, wake up girlfriend he is still looking

      What a lovely ending......I was skeptical if this site was legit.....I have made contact with a lovely, receptive woman and hope to meet her real soon. I notice a lot of responses mentioning LUCK....well there is no such thing as LUCK, good or bad. This man-made term is merely a filler to justify self. I find it better to state as several did...." I wish you both the best" God Bless your union, etc.....definitely appropriate. I am hopeing for a match made in heaven and wish to best to those seeking the same.

    Ohmygod! What a happy and joyous ending to how Matt and Phrasie came together in holy matrimony! As a Jewish-Latino American whose own fiancee is of direct Cameroonian descent, I can only hope that my life with me beloved lasts an entire lifetime also. Much respect to you both, Matt and Phrasie!
