My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary on New Year’s Eve. What makes this a really big deal, is that we had both been married twice before…so this was a personal best for each of us.
What makes this an even bigger deal is that we met through Match.com, long before the process of online dating became as commonplace as ordering a meal on Seamless.
But the biggest deal of all is that, at the time, I lived here in NYC and he was in Sydney, Australia — not visiting; it was his home.
Both my husband and I went on “Match” for a 10-day free trial and connected on our very last day. I opened my search criteria to the world; he didn’t, but I popped as a match anyway…so you just never know.
For some New Yorkers — and I know a few — inter-borough dating is considered a long distance relationship. If it’s not convenient, it’s just not happening. To these people I say, “SNAP OUT OF IT!”
Cross a bridge, hop a subway, take a ferry…there are some things that are well worth getting out of your comfort zone for; and I don’t mean pizza.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
