In the fall of 1997, I posted an ad on Spark.com. I was just looking for a companion, someone with whom I could play tennis, hike, or just go to a movie. I received many responses from men all over the U.S.
You can imagine my surprise when I received an answer from a man in The Netherlands. He had a job opportunity that he was trying for in Dayton, OH and wanted to get to know people in the area before he moved over. We talked through email and on the phone for 4 months before he moved to the U.S. and we actually met in person.
Things were even better between us than we had hoped they would be. We dated for a year after he moved here, and last June 5, 2000, we were married. Things are going beautifully, and we have Spark.com to thank for bringing us together. P.S. **Remember, don't sweat the little things...they always work out!! :-)
