Cyber Love Story of the Week – Cathy and Peter

cathyandpeterCathy and Peter met in late November, 2005 on?JDate?.com — the #1 Jewish social scene. Both of them were recently separated and neither were looking for a serious relationship. Cathy had her arm twisted by an old high school friend to join the online dating site as she didn’t want to go bar-hopping. She created her perfect online dating profile, which was filled with humor and a good representation of who she really was. She uploaded a recent photo, clicked “submit” and was ready to go.

Peter and Cathy started communicating via Instant Messaging and the initial IM turned into a two hour phone call. It was the first person she IM’d with. One week later they met for dinner. ?Cathy’s goal was only for friendship. By the time they got to dessert, she had a huge crush on Peter. He was physically exactly her type and the couple started dating once a week from that night on.

Both Cathy and Peter were single parents and were concerned about how to introduce their children into the relationship. At times it was a bumpy road, as they both were not divorced yet when they met. After three years together, Peter proposed to Cathy in New York City. They blended their families and the menagerie now includes four children, three birds, one dog, and an ant farm. According to Peter, he feels like they are the Jewish Brady Bunch and they are convinced they will all live happily-ever-after.
