"Opposites attract"
How to begin, my best friend and I were hanging out on the patio drinking wine and talking about men, when she finally convinced me to go on a dating site, since she used POF she thought that I should as well, and I am so glad that I did. That same night Jacob sent me a message. Despite the fact that he was completely opposite of my "type" I felt drawn to him in a way that I can't explain. We messages back and forth all night and began texting the next day. Just so you know the time span this all began on a Wednesday night. Friday, we decided that we would meet up for a drink after work. Well, his son got sick and he asked if I minded that we hang out on the patio at his house, but if I was uncomfortable with that he understood. For reasons that I couldn't have explained then, I was completely comfortable with it, which was odd, I would have never done that before. Turned out he only lived right around the corner from me and we stayed up talking in his garage until 7am Saturday morning. I worked all day and came back over that night and we talked all night again. There is one very important part that I left out from the first night. When I walked up the driveway and saw him for the first time in person, it was like a lightening bolt hit me, I knew that he is the one for me. Beyond a shadow of a doubt I knew it! Right then and there I knew that I have loved him my whole life, but I just hadn't known it until that moment. Needless to say I never left after that Friday night. He have me a key to the house Monday morning and told me to love my stuff in. One year and one day later we got married. He is the most amazing man, husband, and father I have ever met. Despite us being complete opposites, we mesh very well. It works for us, we pick up each others slack. Becoming a member of the POF family was the best decision I had ever made up to that point. We have never been happier and hope for a long loving life together. Thanks POF for getting us together!!
