Dana and Kevin
Kevin and I were matched up on eHarmony in March 2007. If I had only knew how far Birmingham AL was from Sarasota, FL I probably would not have paid as much attention to his request as I did! After a few months of talking back and forth via email and over the phone, we finally decided to meet in GA since I was heading there anyway on a family vacation. Our first date took place in (of all places) Macon, GA where we ended up meeting since it was almost a half way point for the two of us. I thought a park would be a great public place to relax and have the ability to spend some time together without too much distraction but instead, we both were clueless to where anything was at in the town that we ended up in the Indian Burial Ground.
We walked around the "park" for a couple of hours and realized there was more there than just a friendship. Since we both were not living anywhere near one another, it really allowed us to get to know each other over the phone and once we met in person, we were able to see how truthful we were being with each other. Well I was absolutely smitten and I know he felt the same way. After the "date", he asked me out again and then we started flying back and forth to see each other.
I moved up to Birmingham and I am back in school full time studying nutrition. My friends and family thought I was absolutely crazy when I told them about Kevin and after just meeting him twice, he was the man I was going to marry. But once they met him and saw the two of us together, they knew there was something between us. We acted as if we had been best friends for many years!
So here I am, a 100% Florida girl living in Birmingham AL with my best friend and loving every minute of it!
