Love from across the pond

Superdanni (33) from NY, NY & Outgoing (32) from London, UK

Match #: 3311&3312

I was 33 and hugely disillusioned with dating; online dating was yielding nothing and I felt I had exhausted the guys in my 'circle' I was not even a paying member on the day that my (now) husband contacted me on JWed (then JWed) It was a day I'll never forget: a morning like any other, a snowy day in early 2011. I wasn't able to view his message, but his profile looked good EXCEPT he lived in London. I decided to cross that ignore that, paid for membership, and responded. After messaging for several days we made a phone date for several days later, at which time we spoke for 2+ hours. From that day on, we spoke every single day. He came to NY to meet me 5 weeks later, and we had a movie-like week together. By the end of it I knew we'd get married (though if I'm being honest, I knew from the very beginning of the week too) I went to London to see him 2 weeks later, and 2 weeks after that, my parents (bless them) flew to London (so they could meet him before we got engaged) We got engaged 11 weeks after our first contact on the site, 6 weeks after meeting in person for the first time. We got married 3 months later. BH that was 8 years ago. Thank you, JWed for the intro!
