Cyber Love Story of the Week – Leslie and Stan

leslieandstan2Stan joined the dating site OKCupid last year, while going thru a divorce following 20 years of marriage. He liked the social networking aspect of it, but wasn?t really meeting the right kind of girl he was looking for ? someone edgy but not crazy.

Leslie joined OKCupid at the beginning of this year, goaded on by another single friend who had met lots of interesting people on the site, and wanted a girlfriend to compare stories with.

OK Cupid is geared more toward alternative individuals, like those who work in creative fields, go to Burning Man, and have unusual hobbies. Leslie didn?t have great success at first, and in fact the only man she was going to meet up with coincidentally turned out to be one that her friend on OK cupid had just gone out with the night before, so she bided her time.

Eventually she got an email from Stan ? he said that her hairdo got his attention, and he liked her profile. She read his profile and he looked like what she was seeking. He described himself as an alternative-type guy with a good heart and active lifestyle. He wrote that he loves cooking and cycling, which are two of her favorite hobbies as well.

The two met and BBQ?d together for their first date. Leslie was impressed with Stan?s BBQ skills. It almost didn?t go past the first date, though, because Stan was so shy that Leslie had a hard time connecting with him. However, she warmed up to him in the weeks that followed. Now they are a very happy couple.?He cooks for her all the time, which is a delight for Leslie since she?s usually cooking for everyone else. They enjoy leisurely weekend bike rides along the beach and seeing independent and documentary films.

Both were skeptical about online dating but found success so now are converts.
