Success Story: Two Days, One Date and a Wedding

Posted by Leticia, 17 Oct 16

Deborah went online to research different dating sites. She suddenly decided that ours was the one to try. Even so, she wasn’t at all confident that anything would happen.

Dennis signed up because he was looking for companionship, not a hook-up. He was willing to take a chance on finding someone who could be his true partner in life.

Deborah had been a member for a grand total of four days when she came across the profile of someone called “Smoli.” Smitten by “his pretty face,” as she calls it, she sent the guy a Flirt.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

Smoli was Dennis, of course. He’d been on the site for two whole weeks when he received the Flirt from “SBFTX,” Deborah’s rather unusual handle. He was very pleased. “I thought she was beautiful, and fell in love instantly,” Dennis recounts today.

Once they got on the phone, the duo discovered that there was another reason for their attraction. They loved to hear the other speak! Says Deborah, “He has a clear, beautiful voice, and a direct way of speaking.” Dennis says it was “her proper use of the English language” — which is very important to him — that was most impressive. “Her clear voice was so easy to understand,” he tells us.

While Deborah and Dennis hadn’t known each other long, they’d already zoomed right past a roadblock that so many couples experience — communication.

They also couldn’t wait to meet face-to-face. Their first official meeting was at the Fargo, North Dakota airport. Deborah discovered that Dennis not only looked exactly like his online picture, but also that “he was very handsome!” Dennis again marveled at how beautiful she was, saying, “I loved her full lips and big eyes.”

Their first date was a trip to his church. “Everyone at the church treated her well,” remembers Dennis. How sure was he that they would go out again? Pretty sure, as it turned out. “We were married two days after our first meeting and the day after our first date!”

Well, it didn’t really happen that fast. Dennis had proposed before they even met in person. Both singles felt that the connection was that strong. The only obstacle was distance. “Being separated was very stressful,” Deborah acknowledges. “I lived in El Paso, Texas. Dennis had retired as a commercial farmer and lived in Fargo.”

But that’s all behind them now, because the couple quickly figured out how to make it work. Finding love has changed Deborah’s life in all manner of ways, she says. “He is the most loving, kind and generous person I have ever met, and my world is now complete...we are enjoying the life of a retired couple.”

Love has taught Dennis how to enjoy life to the fullest. “She is a very faithful and spiritual person. And she makes my world rock!” He shakes his head in happy amazement. “Now I’m learning how to dance!”

Deborah has a piece of advice for all the online daters looking for love. “Don’t look for material riches,” she says. “Look for a man who is honest, hardworking and kind.”

Dennis echoes her sentiment. “Don’t look for money. Look for love.”

    - I thought she was beautiful, and fell in love instantly, Dennis recounts today. - No, no, no, men are NOT allowed to do that in 2017. That's considered "creepy" by today's standards of dating by today's feminism in women. It ain't like the days when our grandfathers met our grandmothers. So this guy instantly falls in love and she accepts him? Or is he just saying it now, AFTER the fact, because now that they're in a relationship, nothing he says about how he felt at first sight is "creepy" anymore? Smh. S-m-h. This is getting ridiculous and yes I AM bitter. I'm bitter because of the feminism I run into every day with every woman I meet, try to meet or talk to with a show of interest. And these men are on here for 4 days and suddenly find the love of their lives? I've been on this site for over 4 yrs and had 2 dates that amounted to NOTHING. I've had women exchange phone numbers with me and video chat with me for days and days and then when plans were made to meet in person *poof* , they disappeared like David Copperfield. Perhaps the women I'm running into happen to all be magicians?! I'm so done with this.

      Paganinifan, I believe in confidence. its better you confide in someone before you call for a date. It's too early to give up. Keep trying.

    I liked her Full Lips and Big eyes...?? "her proper use of the English Language...." There are so many red flags I saw in this. I wish them the best, But yeah, either this is poorly written, or something else is off. How about her spirit, her intellect, or how she carried herself.... Nope. How he says stuff, really shows that he has had little to no contact with black women. I wish them the best, but this either needs to be pulled or rewritten. It smacks of stereotyping someone.... just my opinion.

      I thought it was a sweet and honest story. I think communication was a key factor in his decision as to whom he felt attracted to and wish to spend his life with. We can't wrong him for that we all have our little quirks and finding someone that gels with those is an amazing feeling.

      Thank you for noticing how offensive and stereotyping some of that article was. I felt crazy reading that.

      Instead of being such a doubting Thomas, why don't you wish them the best of luck and concentrate on your own life; try setting a good example.
