Michelle and Russell

What True Love Is

I will never forget it for as long as I live...I was coming back from an arcade with one of my best friends and I think we were talking about how I was tired of being single when he said, "Have you tried OkCupid?" Mind you, I had tried other dating websites...LoveHappens, E Spin the Bottle, IMVU, etc. Nothing good ever came out of them. I told him I hadn't and he said in reply, 'It's a good site. Give it a try.' So...deciding to take a final chance on online dating, I made a profile.

(SIDENOTE: This is the best online dating site I have seen!)

So you know, I'm looking looking looking when suddenly I come upon Russ' profile and I read it cover to cover and I PRAYED he would reply back becaase he seemed like a great guy overall. AND HE DID and HE IS!!!!

The moment I heard Russ' voice, I knew there was something special about him. We talked for 2 hours on the first night and another 2 hours the following night and then the next day we decided to meet. We met a local diner in my town and at first we were both a little nervous but then we found out we had more in common than we thought! We both had ex's that were addicted to WOW, we had the similar personalities, we both went to trade schools for what we loved (He went for cars, I went for dogs) and now we're both going back to school to hopefully find better jobs for our other passions! (Him with computers, me with books.)

After the diner we went for a random drive and we just talked and laughed and it was just so amazing! We also knew the same people, which brought about more coincidences and more reasons why we were meant to meet.We began dating from 5-11-10, then on 5-30-10 he asked me to be his girlfriend.

Russ is the sweetest, most generous, most handsome, most amazing/fantastic man I have ever met in my entire life and though we have only really been together for two and a half months, we both agree whole-heartedly that we want to get married and share a life together full of love and amazing experiences/adventures.

To the creators of OK Cupid, thank you! Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I wish I could give each of you a hug because without this site, I would have never found my soulmate. I Thought I knew what love was with my ex...well...I was absolutely wrong. In my eyes, the best description of love I have heard is 'Love is giving someone the ability to destroy you but you trust them enough not to.'

I trusted my ex, but he destroyed me. I have given Russ more than I ever gave my ex, but I know from the bottom of my heart that Russ would never do that. It's the greatest feeling in the world...to love and be loved in return. Thank you again for helping me find my one true love!
