Real online dating success stories
Both our siblings and my mom know and are happy for us.
My father will have a difficult time with it, but I believe will accept him in time.
And when I finally met Eddy for our first date, I had been going on so many of these, and was so busy, I didn't even know his name.
I walked into the restaurant where we met, and I literally had to check my phone, like, He took me out to dinner, which is a really bold first-date move, and it ended up going really well.
But I met a bunch of really interesting, great guys, who I still keep in touch with — it's hard to be real friends with them, but we're pretty friendly.
I've set up some of the guys on dates with my girlfriends.
There were points where I was going on dates with two or three people a week.
About three weeks into things, we were eating dinner at a restaurant in Brooklyn when I realized I was just so infatuated with him.
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.
And you're not going to meet somebody at a bar if you're a single mom. Five months into dating, he proposed, but we had already been talking about it for a few months. So I saw that Khalil liked me, and at this point, it was kind of overwhelming to be a girl doing online dating — I needed to make a spreadsheet or something. After doing online dating for a while, what I knew was I'd rather not spend a long time getting to know him.
He had met my son, so we had to ask: Do we have a future? I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm just going with it. But I liked him back, and he messaged me right away. If he seemed normal, we'd have a drink, rather than building up this idea of who he is. On the site we used, they have a question that asks the things you can't live without, and I wrote was bad for the eyes and something about the evil eye. I actually forgot his name — I only remembered that he was no. When I got home, he texted me that he was deleting his account, and I was like, OK. It was the beginning of summer in New York, and every weekend was busy.
