, Married 9/2015

A friend had met a guy on plenty of fish and my response was " that actually works?". A few years later I was ready to try it out. I found Patrick's profile when seeing we were both interested in traveling. I messaged him and soon after received a response from him. We lived an hour apart and he was willing to meet me in my town. I was hesitant meeting someone from an online dating site for the first time so i met him at Starbucks knowing it would be a public place so i could make sure i actually wanted to spend the day with him! I saw him immediately and recognized him since he so conveniently wore the same shirt as in his profile photo! I liked him immediately! We had coffee then i toured him around the city seeing different sites and quaint towns. We ended up spending 5hrs together that day and he agreed he wanted to meet me again! Throughout the next 9 months we commuted an hour multiple times a week to see each other. He was able to get a job transfer and moved in with me that year. Six months later he proposed! And 7 months after the proposal we traveled 3300 miles where we were married on the island of Maui in Hawaii! We have been married now for 9 months and have traveled the world together seeing China, Vietnam, Singapore, Mexico, Jamaica, Cayman Islands and every in between! Everyday is a gift with him. I can't believe it was all because i signed up on plenty of fish, i was lucky i hit the jackpot on my first try!
