Amy & Don - Maryland, United States
Confident of Their Connection
Amy, aka “SCLooking,” had tried online dating before but was only “somewhat” confident when she joined our site. And for the first three months, her low expectations were proven out. Nothing amazing happened in her love life. Until one day when everything changed. She received an email from a member with the username “SmoothJazz45.” He was definitely her type.
Who is SmoothJazz45? Meet Don, a normal guy who hadn’t found an exceptional relationship through the usual means. He says a friend saw that he was dissatisfied with his love life and urged him to give online dating a try. Was Don optimistic? “Not really,” he says. And yet, only a month into his membership, “SmoothJazz45” found “SCLooking.”
Using all the communication features of our site, the duo got acquainted quickly. The more they learned about each other, the more they felt confident of their connection. They developed what they call a “comfort level” that convinced both it was time to get together on the other side of the computer screen.
“I was in love with him before we met face to face,” Amy says. “We were comfortable with each other right away.”
When date night comes along, the first hurdle is always, will things be different in person? As Don stepped into the room and they met for the first time, Amy liked what she saw. “Cuter than his pictures!” she remembers thinking.
Don’s initial thought was even more succinct. “Wow!” Despite the familiarity they had already achieved, it was still the first time they had interacted in the real world. A little awkwardness wouldn’t be out of the ordinary. And yet, Amy says she was surprised at “how easily we got along.”
After the date, Don and Amy shared an unspoken agreement—a second meeting was “very” likely. Don asked her out again and the rest, as they say, is history. The couple is still going strong. Dating exclusively, they say there are major life changes on the horizon. “I will be moving to another state,” Amy says coyly. We’ll take that as a good sign!
From her new, more optimistic vantage point, Amy would like to share a few words of encouragement with online daters. “Keep trying,” she says. “Don’t settle.” And for all those who are still on the fence about giving our site a shot, Don has this to say.
