I thought I will be more lucky looking for my love online
“When it comes to women, I’ve never been lucky. I wouldn’t describe myself as a man, who can have 10 girls on each finger, as other men do,” Lucas says and continues that meanwhile his friends were going on a dates almost every day, he was still alone. If he met someone, they were together for no longer than half a year.
“I decided to make myself a profile on a dating site. It wasn’t even my idea. My co-worker told me to sign up there, because he couldn’t see me still being single. I thought I’ll be more lucky meeting women online instead of meeting them face to face, Lucas says in his e-mail.
Few women contacted me. Jessica was one of them
It didn’t even take a day, and Lucas already received a few messages. One of the message was from Jessica – forty five years old, classical music fan, and in her profile was that she likes walks in the nature.
Lucas really liked her profile and decided to answer back.
“I don’t know what made me to like her just from seeing her profile. She had a beautiful profile picture. She looked really nice, so I answered her back and I hoped, that everything will go well,” Lucas describes Jessica.
We were texting for four months
“We were texting almost every day for four months. We were trying to get to know each other, we found a lot of interesting information about each other and we found out that we have a lot of things in common. That’s why I decided to ask her on a date. It had to happen one day,” Lucas continues.
He says that Jessica wanted to meet him by the coffee store placed in a city, where she was from.
“To be honest, I was a little bit nervous. Not just a little bit, I was nervous a lot. I arrived fifteen minutes earlier and I was waiting for Jessica to come. She told me that she will be wearing a red scarf. After fifteen minutes of waiting, a woman with red scarf showed up. And I was shocked. She was on a wheelchair,” Lucas describes their first meeting.
I didn’t expect it
Lucas says in his e-mail, that he expected everything according to what he heard about dating sites. But he didn’t expect this woman to be a on a wheelchair.
“She didn’t mention it to me. I understand that she might’ve been scared. When I saw her for the first time, I wasn’t just surprised, I was shocked. But after four months of texting and finally seeing in person, I found out that I fell in love with her, even she was on a wheelchair,” says Lucas.
“Wheelchair is not a reason for not being together. We’ve been together for a year, and we are in a beautiful relationship,” Lucas ends his story.
