“I met him and we were married 4 months, 5 months later. I was his first true girlfriend, ever. We fell in love, it was almost automatic. It was instant.”

“It was a dating site, now we’ll be married for 13 years.”

“He texted me on the site and said “I’m kinda interested,” so I looked at his profile and he was from Pittsburgh, so I was a nice person and I said “your profile doesn’t say much about you, why don’t you fill out more information?” So he did. And I could tell he was very shy, very green, and precious though. So he filled out more of the information and I knew that he was that way and I wanted to build his ego. Not that I want to would be interested, but I said “if I wasn’t so far…” So he latched on to me like a fallen star, ahhh! His screen name was Tony, and then I gave him my email and next thing I know, I’m getting these emails from Carl and I’m thinking “Who the heck is Carl?” I thought I’d been talking to Tony!”
