Arianne and Erik
We Connected And Then Reconnected
When Erik and I first started talking through OkCupid I was living in Victoria, BC while he was in Oak Harbor, WA-- we had no idea that we were living in different countries. Our distance only showed 33 miles, and I assumed that he was in Vancouver, while he assumed that I was in Bellingham. We met in person in early October 2008-- and over the course of a month and a half we spent several weekends together. We decided to go our separate ways in November, and didn't speak for several months.
During the fall of 2009 we reconnected (again through OkCupid)-- shortly afterward I moved to the US, and we were married on Po'olenalena beach on Maui in July 2010.
