My fiance and I met on Bookadatenow.com. She had moved back to the city where she grew up after a spell moving around the eastern half of the country and I had just finished grad school, watching most of my friends move away while I stayed in town with a shiny new job in hand. She would remember who messaged whom first, but I don’t. Suffice to say she was smitten with the prose I had on the screen and three other key points: that I didn’t look like a total creeper, wasn’t married, and didn’t make continuous references to only wanting to have sex.
When we met I was shocked at how gorgeous she was, having expected some use of the “angles,” and told her as such. We ended up at a couple different bars around the city and made out like high school kids in my car (which we were not).
Fast forward about two months and I asked her to move in with me. Another 18 months later and we’re engaged. She stills stands by the fact that she wasn’t looking for anything too serious.
