Internet dating love
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
It wasn't a priority, because I was seeing so many random people at that point.
There were points where I was going on dates with two or three people a week.
Dating people casually, I didn't really meet anyone that I was interested in for a while.
But I'd mentioned on one of our dates that I have an obsession with King Richard III, and maybe two days later he texted me all these articles about how they'd found Richard III's body. Once I realized that he's the kind of person who says what he means and means what he says, I was so happy.
I remember early on, I would say to my friends, "I think he thinks I must be an heiress, he just treats me so nicely." We moved in together after about 18 months of dating. Barring something really unpredictable, we both think that this is "It." Sometimes I think there's a stigma about meeting online.
But I met a bunch of really interesting, great guys, who I still keep in touch with — it's hard to be real friends with them, but we're pretty friendly.
