“We merged together effortlessly. We really enjoy just being together, whether it’s grocery shopping, watching TV, going out to eat or working.”
I’d been divorced for the second time for nearly 2 years when a coworker encouraged me to try Plenty of Fish. I was pushing fifty and ready to find someone I could really connect with this time. After a few weeks and a few so-so dates, a really unusual photo of a guy popped up with a 97% Match. I responded by telling him how cool I thought his picture was, and he responded with a thank you and his name which was the same as mine, Alex. Hey, neat! We have the same name! We exchanged numbers and started texting. After a few days he asked me to call him, and though uncomfortable silences make me very uncomfortable, I bit the bullet and called him. Low and behold, a very pleasant British accent greeted me. The conversation flowed with no uncomfortable silences at all. It was fun to talk to him. After texting for a few days, I asked him if he’d like to go out with me. He readily agreed and even picked me up at my house on time! Big points for being on time. I hopped into his car and immediately felt at home and quite attracted to this Englishman. I didn’t hesitate to tell him how cute I thought he was, and he returned the compliment. It felt like we’d known each other for years on our date. We both felt this was the beginning of something special.
We had so much in common! Along with having the same name, our birthdays were 5 days apart, and we were the same sign, we’d both been married twice before and his likes were mine, and mine were his! We had a wonderful time getting to know each other.
Four months later, I moved into his house. We merged together effortlessly. We really enjoy just being together, whether it’s grocery shopping, watching TV, going out to eat or working. One year later we quit our long-term jobs we were no longer happy with and went into business together. One year after that we got married. As long as our first names are the same, our last names had to be the same as well!!!
It’s quite the conversation piece for our business. Alex and I have been together nearly 3 years now. It’s just easy for us. We’re together 24/7 and neither of us would have it any other way. We’re just two peas in a pod. Happy together, and it apparently shows because we get complimented a lot on how we are together. Everyone we meet wants to know how we met. We have fun telling our story.
