Bess and Justin
Location, Location, Location
I'd been using OkCupid for ages for quizzes, but never really as a dating site, and for the longest time had my location set at my parents' house. Unfortunately, this was getting a lot of people from that area talking to me, while I spent most of my time about 4 hours away at college. So, at the beginning of spring semester, I decided, on a whim, to change my location.
One of the first people who popped up as a potential match was Justin, and right away I thought he was cute. I got up the courage to talk to him about school and such, since we seemed to have that much in common at least. We later found out that we had friends in common, quite a few in fact, but not enough for our paths to ever overlap. It was only a couple of days later that we met for the first time over some board games and decided to start dating.
It is now almost two years later and our official anniversary is coming up, and we couldn't be happier.
