Christine & Jeremy, Married 8/2014

Dating these days is difficult.. Dating in NYC? Even harder! After three years of trying the NYC dating scene and becoming more and more discouraged, I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and I joined POF. My husband sent me the first message - we exchanged texts / emails for a few days until he mustered up the courage to ask me out! I agreed to go out on a lunch date with him and we realized we had an immediate connection: we were country bumpkins at heart, living in NYC but having trouble adjusting to the city lifestyle; we were fish out of water. We were both longing to find someone we could share our passions with; the outdoors, country music and wide open spaces and POF helped us do just that. As we continued to get to know each other I couldn't believe how much we had in common. We were two like-minded people who valued the same things and wanted the same things out of life. Now, almost four years later I realize more than ever that he is the perfect match for me. I feel so lucky to have met this man and that we get to share the rest of our lives together. I'm so glad I decided to join POF all those years ago and that I took "control" of my love life - a very empowering thing for a lady to do! Meeting my husband was the best thing to ever happen to me. These two fish have finally found their water and we couldn't have done it without POF.
