Nearly Gave Up

Erica and James

Hasbrouck Heights, NJ

After more than a decade of continuous searching for a soul mate, a string of bad breaks and disappointments in dating, and almost giving up hope and preparing to accept being single for life, I have finally found a great guy. And it is thanks to! I highly recommend this site to anyone who is single and is really committed to finding a long-term relationship. I am 37 years old and have dreamed of settling down, starting a family, and enjoying another fifty or sixty more years with a special, loving man, but finding the right person has been a big struggle. I have tried other sources before There was always something that did not click -- i.e., major age differences, incompatibility, lack of chemistry, dissimilar values and goals.

This was my second time on I tried it once three years ago for seven months and didn't have any success. In retrospect, I thought that seven months was not enough time and decided to give this another chance, so I signed up again last year in February and registered a whole year. That is how I met James. He is the only man I have ever dated that really understands where I am coming from and what I really want, and he accepts me for who I am. He is not only my boyfriend but also a best friend, always there for me when I want someone to talk to, consistently supportive of my dreams and goals, and very protective but not smothering or possessive. I live in New Jersey and he lives in Long Island; he always goes out of his way to be with me.

We are very flexible and compatible -- always ready to solve problems when they pop up unexpectedly -- and have great chemistry and compatibility, similar interests, similar values, and a mutual, loving bond. We have cultural differences, but that only makes us more interesting as a couple. I have nothing more to say except, thank you again from the bottom of my heart for a great job you have done in bringing me and James together. We never would have met if it hadn't been for your site. I highly recommend to anybody who is single and is committed to finding a long-lasting, quality relationship. Keep up the good work!
