Most people are amazed when they learn that Terry and I met through an on-line dating service.
Yes, it's true.
I was 61, lonely, and looking for some fun. I didn't necessarily want to get married again, but wanted some male companionship.
I was on vacation with my brother in Palm Desert. He had just met a woman on E_Harmony, and was pretty sure this would be his wife. (They were married that year). So, he sat me down and showed me the ropes. I went through the lengthy process, answered all of the questions, and sat back and waited. And waited. After a few weeks, I got notification of some picks for me. I saw there was a man from my home town, and I got a little excited, wondering who that could be.
When the picture came up, I was flabbergasted. It was my brother!!!
I had always told him he needed a woman like me, but really.
I never made a connection on that site, but tried several others. Most of the men who contacted me were frauds. They prey on widows, but it's not hard to discern them.
I met a couple of nice men. Actually had a few dates.
Then Terry contacted me, and the rest is history.
It was not smooth sailing. I broke up with him three times, but eventually came to realize that I wanted and needed him in my life.
Thank you, Terry, for being patient with me and waiting.
