I See You Looking!
In real life, “Moemoe011” and “Singleguy67” were Monique and Glen. Both were new to our site and online dating in general. She puts her initial confidence level at “so so” but he says he was “fairly” optimistic that he would find the love he was looking for…
A year into her membership, Monique noticed that she and Glen had something in common: an interest in one another! As he remembers it, “We kept going back and forth viewing each other’s profiles and she finally said, ‘I see you looking — are you going to say something?’”
After this humorous introduction, the pair began interacting online and over the phone. Monique’s assessment was that “he IS cute… But he has kids.” Glen remembers thinking, “I want a hobbit!”
Apparently Monique isn’t going to be playing for the WNBA anytime soon. So with compatibility established, they “talked online by video” and decided they were ready to go for it. Meeting in person, her first thought left little doubt. “Oh yeah, he is the one,” she thought. What shocked Glen was “how we were so much alike!” Monique says she was surprised “when he kissed me at the signal.”
Both singles were 100% sure they would meet again. Says Glen, “I was very excited for the next date.” Meeting Monique has changed his life for the better. “It has made my life a lot more satisfying,” Glen says, quite obviously a happy camper.
Now that they’re coupled up, Monique appreciates Glen’s supportive nature. She says that “his ability to put up with my crazy life” is a huge help to her. Glen believes that her experiences have only made Monique more capable, noting that he admires “how strong she is.”
Given the opportunity to advise others in the art of online dating, Monique says, “Go in with an open mind and screen those men. Because I had to go through a lot to find my knight!”
Glen is in favor of a practical approach. “Look for someone close to you, unless you have the means to go visit.” Assessing your in-person connection is the best way to see what you have (or don’t).
Now we’ll have to wait and see if the knight and the hobbit complete their quest for the ring — a wedding ring…
