A Match from Half Way Around the World
Hadassah (63) from South Carolina & Stephen (60) from United Kingdom
Match #: 1837&1838
I had just come on board JWed and performed my first ever search. I was very apprehensive of any result but friends had found each other using JWed and are happily married. On that first search I saw the man that I was certain was my soul mate. From his profile I not only thought that he was the man I was looking for I also thought I was the perfect woman for him. My reaction to him was so strong that it took me six weeks to get up the courage to reach out and connect. Because he was a non-premium member and I was a premium member and new to how the site worked...he couldn't respond back. I did not perform the correct attempt to connect. Finally, when we connected he began to teach me the Art of JWed. He became my JWed Guru. He also captured my heart.
It took 8 weeks before he gave me his phone number and another 8 weeks before we met. Living so far away from each other, he in Europe and I in the US, had an advantage. We had to get to know each other because conversations about the weather would not have gone very far.
We were forced to write and speak about anything and everything. We became good friends. Such good friends that when we met we remained good friends until a week and a half later when we realized how right it felt to be in each other's company doing things we both enjoyed doing.
