Nicole and Mike

No "What Ifs" About It

When I signed up for OkCupid, I wasn't looking to date anyone. I was disgusted with guys and just wanted to meet some people to talk to, nothing serious. Mike matched with me, and I don't remember how well, but it was a pretty high percentage.

After looking through his profile, I wasn't sold on him and didn't pursue anything. It wasn't until one night I got woken up at 1am with a phone call from my friend telling me my best guy friend had died. I wasn't able to go back to sleep, so I decided to look into things online and see what I could find out about my friend's death. While online, I logged into aim when Mike IM-ed me. I was an emotional wreck and just wanted to talk to someone, so we started talking. He really reminded me of one of my other friends and I was surprised to find we had a lot in common.

We continued to talk day after day... some nights we'd talk til 5am. A couple weeks of this went by and I found myself liking him more and more everyday. We decided to meet, and we did so at the mall and we hung out with my friend and a few of his friends. The next night we had our first official date, and from then on I knew things would work out with him. For once in my life I had no "what if's" about him. About a month went by of us just talking and getting to know each other, and he finally asked me to be his girlfriend one cold night on the beach. That was 9 months ago.

We are so in love and have talked about our future together and one day plan on getting married. Thank you, OkCupid, for giving me the best thing in my life! I truly believe that when someone passes, you are given someone else in their place. Thanks to this website, I found my best friend and the love of my life!
