March 18

Today is our first date anniversary.  Not the day we met or the day we saw each other from across the room--we had met on Match.com, something we had to decide to admit or not.  Should we tell people we had been so actively looking to meet someone--not just hoping--that we had joined an online dating service?  Would they laugh?  Would they feel sorry for us?  Would they wonder why we couldn't meet someone the normal way?

We were at Bear Valley with Andy's kayaking group the first time someone actually asked how we met, and it just seemed natural to be honest.  No one laughed.  People were curious, some had been thinking of trying it themselves, and most thought we were rather brave to have tried such a thing.  Everyone was warm and interested.  Love, after all, is where you find it.  Even if you have to go looking for it.

My SO and I met online (can't remember the name of the site) over 10 years ago. It's been a success so far!
