Michelle & Emmett - North Carolina, United States
When school’s out, online dating is in!
When she was in school, Michelle had no trouble meeting guys. But that changed after graduation. “As we get into adulthood, it’s much harder to meet new people and socially network outside the workplace,” she notes.
For Michelle, joining this site seemed like a logical decision. She didn’t know how right she was! She and a guy with the handle “Bigge” both clicked “yes” for each other’s profiles. Michelle soon got an email from Emmett, aka Bigge…
For these two, that elusive chemistry was there from the start. Their first date was no quick trip to the coffee shop—Emmett cooked dinner and they watched a movie together. Michelle came away with a favorable first impression. “He’s very easy-going, easy to talk to, and I love his smile! We both instantly felt the same about each other, which was also comforting.”
Things progressed smoothly from there. The couple share common interests and a desire for marriage and children. “There’s no rush, but we both want that,” Michelle confirms. For now, they are enjoying the process of getting to know each other better. Michelle is certainly glad she didn’t wait too long to get comfortable with online dating. “I’m so happy since meeting Emmett, and I have such a good time with him!” she says.
Whether you’re fresh out of school, stuck at work for long hours, or just not meeting that special someone, take heart in Michelle and Emmett’s little success story. If you don’t give up, the next one we tell might be yours…
