Jessica was so busy with work and overwhelmed by all of the emails on Match.com? that she almost never met Michael. She had corresponded with a few men, and finally made the time to meet Michael at a restaurant in Oakland, CA.
When Jessica arrived at the restaurant, the hostess informed her that they were about to close. Going with the flow, she decided to wait for him outside on the sidewalk, when suddenly came up to her. She wondered, “Is this Michael?” She started talking to the gentleman and suddenly realized it was another man who had written to her on Match,? who she had taken a pass on. She didn’t want to be rude as the man was rambling on and on about James Joyce, when finally Michael, her blind date, arrived.
She managed to introduce “Dave” the other Match suitor to Michael, and as awkward as that might have seemed,? Michael and Jessica had the first date of many for the rest of their lives. The two were married in September, five years after their first date.? Hopefully Dave found love online as well.
Congratulations to Jessica and Michael, our Cyber Love Story of the Week.
