I was just going through my email and realised that my friend had me open an account for him a few years ago when I thought...I should write and thank you for the role you played in my life.

I joined in the early part of 2000's.
I was probably online searching for the right partner for approximately 3 or 4 years I guess.
I dated a LOT during that time. Id literally line up coffee dates for a Friday night, Saturday lunch time and maybe even Saturday night drinks.
It was hectic...LOL.
During this time I met some really good people who I became good friends with but I couldn't quite find "the one".

Then one day, when I was feeling like this is it....I'm done with the whole online dating thing....there he arrived.
He had joined the site just recently and we had spoken on the phone once but I felt there was no spark right from the start. Next thing, he pitched up at my work with flowers in hand and the brightest smile I've ever seen.
It was December 2005. We moved in together in February 2006 and got married in April 2007.
This year we celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary!
It's not been easy in many respects as we've had to go through a lot of problems that were not our fault but without each other we would never have made it out in one piece.
I adore him and he adores me.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the part you played in our destiny.
