Hilary and Brian

My Longest Relationship So Far

I joined OkCupid in the fall of 2009 on recommendation from a friend from college. Almost immediately I got feedback from a wide spectrum of people. I went out with a few from the site, but never really had that special connection with anyone. There was another guy on the site that I dated for a month but as we got to know each other better we realized that we didn't like each other at all - we barely got along as friends, let alone in a relationship.
So I wandered back to OkCupid just to see if anyone had interesting had popped up and, in December, someone did.
His name is Brian and we first met through Quickmatch. We started talking around the 15th of December, and had our first date sometime in the first week of January. We decided to make it 'official' on the 11th.
Since we live about 45min from each other (Well, 30 if I'm driving!) and we both work full-time, we only get to see each other about once a week. We've had a few speed bumps, but despite those and the distance, the past six and a half months with him have been amazing, and I'm hoping for many more. I've never been with someone longer than a month or two before this, and I thank OkCupid from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to met someone as sweet, funny, smart, and ridiculous as he is.
