Not All the Fireworks Were in the Sky

Posted by Leticia, 21 Jun 12

Today, Narobi and Jean-Francois are happily married. But not so long ago, they were sad singles without the sense that something special was in store for them. “I was tired of all the disappointments from regular dating,” admits Narobi. “I tried other sites, but yours was better.”

So she created a profile and waited. For three months, nothing happened. Enter Jean-Francois. He too was down on his luck in love. “I was not confident at all,” says Jean-Francois. “I thought it was all fun and games [online]. I was not looking for love, more for friends.”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

But he found more than a friend in Narobi. Just a week into his membership, Jean-Francois noticed her profile. She had an unusual username. “I emailed ‘cherrykee,’” says Jean-Francois. “She was very beautiful and seemed easy going. She is very similar to what I have always liked, but very different from me.”

Receiving the email, Narobi looked up Jean-Francois’ profile. It’s not that he was unappealing, but nor was he exactly what she expected from her future husband. She says Jean-Francois was “not at all similar to what I thought I liked. The complete opposite, to be honest! But it turned out to be exactly what I needed.”

Intrigued enough to see where this went, Narobi replied to the message and the pair began a correspondence. That went well. “We were texting a lot, so I figured it was time for a real date,” Narobi explains. So they spent some time together in the flesh. One thing that really impressed Narobi was her date’s manners. “He was a true gentleman. Very nice to talk to… and to look at! It was the 4th of July, and sparks were in the air immediately. I was very sure we would go out again.”

It wasn’t just Narobi who felt the fireworks going off between them. The date didn’t disappoint Jean-Francois, either. “She was very beautiful! The conversation just flowed for hours. She was so easy to talk to. I had the feeling we’d known each other for a very long time.”

One thing Narobi didn’t pick up from Jean-Francois’ dating profile was his way with words. She singles out for praise “his ability to communicate, even though we are from two different parts of the world.”

While Jean-Francois was pushing his vocabulary to the limit, he acknowledges that Narobi was a receptive listener. “Narobi was very patient and understanding of me having a different first language,” notes Jean-Francois.

The more the couple got to know each other, the more they were able to overcome their cultural differences. They developed a connection far more profound than mere language can convey. In time, Narobi and Jean-Francois made the decision to cohabitate. “After we moved in together, I got down on one knee in our living room and asked her to be my wife. She accepted, making me the happiest man on Earth. It’s the first time in my life that I have known real love. The love that we have is awesome, great and unexplainable.”

“I never knew real love existed before him,” adds Narobi. “But now I’m living my fairy tale life.”

We asked Narobi if she had any encouraging words for the singles still on our site. “Yes,” she replied. “If you’re looking for real love, this site is the place to find it!” Jean-Francois chimes in, “This is where I found my true love!”

    What's wrong with the people I am now rashes but why is it so big that you can not be whiff your rash and it is not just me my black friend says his daughter will never be allowed to be with a white man are we not happy with the person you are and your fourth fathers or are we doing it to be in because the Kardashians is doing it so we must to in 30 years time you're not going to have Italian, Spanish, French, Russian, Netherlands, !!!! Because we are not happy were we come from you people have so much to be thankful for in South Africa we work hard for what we want I have my own business for 30 year's started when I was 20 now after all this year's I must give 60% of my business for a black male call it BEE from this year we must give part of the business for a black lady call it BBBEE so must I also go and married a black lady so that I don't lose what I have work for , for 30 year's didn't get money from the Government we can't be hold responsible for what happened in 1890 why do we keep on trying to fix things what we didn't even know how it was and what happened for how long are we going to ride the grave train because of what happened 50 year's ago were most of the people milking it wasn't even born must I as a white person in South Africa give what I have work for, for 30 years away for what my fourth father's has done WHY THEY WASN'T THERE THE BLACK PEOPLE HAVE IT MORE EACHER THAT ME AS WHITE MALE HAVE IT AND STILL MUST I GIVE AWAY WHAT I HAVE WORK FOR SO WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP PUT IT ON OUR SELF FOR WHAT HAPPENED 80 to 100 years ago and to get married is not going to make it right like everybody knows it isn't a easy to have a construction company we build hospitals AND WE DON'T GET PEOPLE FROM OUT OF SOUTH AFRICA TO BUY IN TO businesses in South Africa because that's the only way that you don't have to give away what you have work for
