, Married 12/2013

When I met Troy I had just started my first year of graduate school, was a single mom and didn't have a lot of time to go out and meet people. We were both shy at first, but he quickly won me over by showing me his silly side. He was very patient with me wanting to start things off slowly, but it was his small acts of kindness that stole my heart. In the midst of my graduate studies and duties as a teaching assistant, I was often so busy that I would forget to eat. Wanting to help, he would show up at my apartment with a delicious salad or freshly prepared meal to get me through a study session. He was thoughtful, genuine and we could literally spend hours together laughing about nothing. For the first time in a long time, I felt as if I had found someone I could really be myself around. I knew I had met someone I could share my life with. Since meeting in 2012, we were married, spent a dream honeymoon in Hawaii and recently had a beautiful baby girl. What's funny is we had crossed paths in the past, as we both attended the same junior high and graduated from the same university, but had never actually met. If it hadn't been for POF, we may not be where we are today. We are both so grateful for this site!
