Hannah and Chris
After going through a pretty horrible divorce and having trouble in numerous social circles, I was skeptical about trying online dating. I found OkCupid and went ahead and filled out a profile even though I was hesitant and didn't really think anything would come of it. I went out on a few dates with some really nice guys but nothing clicked.
Then Chris messaged me one night. Although his profile was pretty vague, something about him continued to keep my attention. We ended up talking through chat feature for almost 4 hours that night. We were so anxious to meet each other so we agreed to go out the next night for dinner.
I found out that Chris had also been through a divorce and that he has a beautiful 3 year old daughter. When it came to our values, interests, and desires for our future, we have so much in common. We're also complete polar opposites when it comes to certain aspects of our lives, but instead of hindering any feelings we have towards one another, it completely balances us out as individuals and makes us closer.
I haven't lost those butterflies I've had since I first met him. I knew I wanted him as a part of my life ever since he knocked on my door to pick me up for our first date.
We're now living together and before Thanksgiving he proposed to me. I never thought I would find love again. We always joke that we'll have a crazy story to tell our kids one day about how we found each other thanks to the internet and OkCupid!
