Dating Success Story

Many people wonder if online dating really works. Sure, you see great stories and testimonials on each of the websites but are they real or merely a way of advertising the services? In truth, for many people, online dating does work. By knowing the best services to join, how to flirt and communicate, the right questions to ask members and having a great attitude are what make for the perfect winning combination. The success story below is 100% true and will show you that online dating can be a success story for you!

Taking a Dare

Mark was a senior in high school, spending most of his time playing football as a running back and baseball as the star pitcher. He was tall, had dark hair, dimples, and the most amazing crystal blue eyes. Mark had girls throwing themselves at him every day. In addition to being athletic he was also a great student and had an amazing personality. Okay, so why would Mark join an online dating service? It all started with a dare.

One night while with his football buddies surfing the net, they saw a pop-up ad for a dating service. Deciding to check it out, they entered the site, browsed around, and found it to be quite interesting. Mark snubbed his nose at it saying that it was bogus and only losers used online dating services. Well, that was all it took for his friends to make a dare. "Okay Mark, you think you're so great, you get a date on here and we�ll carry your football equipment for you, for one full month!" With a dare like that, Mark could not refuse.

Having some spare time the following night, Mark began his quest. He went back to the online dating service where they had been the night before. He was not too impressed so he started looking at other sites. Then he came upon one that focused solely on people ranging in age from 16 to 24 and, it offered a full month free trail! Taking his time, he browsed through various photos. After 10 minutes, he opened a photo of a girl his age and Mark�s mouth dropped.

She was naturally pretty but more than that, there was something different, something special about her. Better yet, she lived just 40 minutes from him! Now, the typical in-control Mark felt very vulnerable. If he sent her a message, would she respond? Remembering his dare, he went ahead and wrote a very quick e-mail just to say hi. About 20 minutes later after reading Angie�s profile and browsing other photos, he received an instant message, "Hi Mark � it�s Angie." His heart literally skipped a beat. Nervous, Mark responded, "Hey there".

Well, that conversation led to more conversations and within two weeks, they decided to meet face-to-face. Making matters worse, Mark pulled up to the most gorgeous mansion where Angie, her mother, and her Plastic Surgeon father lived. Now, his old two-tone blue Chevy was not so impressive. What would she think? Bravely knocking on the door, Angie�s father answered, invited him in, and then they chatted before Angie entered the room. That moment, Mark will tell you, was magical. She was truly beautiful and upon seeing Mark, she was just as happy.

That meeting took place five years ago. Both Mark and Angie have finished high school and college, and today, Angie is sporting a beautiful engagement ring, as the two of them plan for their upcoming wedding.

The great thing about online dating is that you can be 16, 50, or 92 and find friends or make a love connection. After all, what do you have to lose but a missed opportunity!
