May 2010 – Age 36
I was in the office chatting to an old friend and having a catch up like you do. We got onto relationships and I explained that sadly I was now single and the prospect of meeting a man out and about would be tricky due to juggling work and parenting. To which he replied, have you heard of this online dating site (well known one), I didn’t even realise this was an option! Obviously I was curious, who wouldn’t be!
That night I went on with my usual business and then went on to meet a friend (also single). I mentioned what I’d been told about this site and that it was proving successful for my friend. Now she was curious!!
We thought to ourselves, what harm would it be to have a nosy online and see what all the fuss was about…after all, its only a bit of fun..!
I NEVER expected what comes next.
My journey started..
