Three years ago today

was a Saturday.

It was a gorgeous day, and I had nearly finished unpacking all of my boxes from our move 10 days prior to Paradise.

I had an old flatmate up for the weekend. She is from Laos. She and 'Salina were concocting plans that involved a slumber party in the living room, junk food and a movie.

I had plans.

See, a month before three years ago today, I had taken my (love) life into my own hands and updated my profile on a dating website - not because I was looking for Mr Right, but because you may never never know if you don't dip your toe.

There were a variety of nibbles on the line, but only one intrigued me enough to tug the line.

We "chatted" - first on IM, then on the phone. We texted and emailed and got to know each other long distance.

Then we made plans for a date.

Three years ago today, we had that first date.

Obviously, it went well.

Happy First Date anniversary!!! Pretty sure I cannot recall the exact date of the date Mr I and I went on... can remember the date ITSELF however. The dinner bit I mean. Not the calendar day. English is soooo confusing!!

Congrats! I thought my husband and I were the only ones who celebrated their "dating anniversary" :)

Packed three years, wasn't it?

Awww, how lovely !!!

There is so much 'negative' stuff out there about online dating. I don't think it's any different than walking into a bar or going somewhere. You meet the good and bad wherever !!!

Yay that you met someone good.
