Amy and Tim
"I've never been happier!"
I wasn't an online dating optimist when I made a profile, I was merely having fun and wanted to see how it all worked. Today, however, I would strongly recommend this process- and especially this website- for all people interested in looking for a long-lasting relationship.
I made a profile at the beginning of October 2007 and Tim sent me a message just after Halloween in 2007 saying that he'd love to talk and learn more about me if I had time; we sent messages back and forth almost everyday until our first date on January 5, 2008. He lived about an hour away and with our schedules, we saw each other every weekend.
Tim proposed on September 6, 2008 and I said "of course!" It was the best surprise ever. We got married on April 4, 2009 and I've never been happier.
