Internet dating success stories
Sal, a 20-year-old student and programmer living in Newark, N.
J., signed up to Ok Cupid last summer and two weeks later found KJ.
KJ is a shy, 25-year-old comic book artist living in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
She turned to Ok Cupid because she felt “not very personable," but discovered that many used the website to get a little too personal: "Most just wanted to hook up," she says.
They rode bikes to Roberta’s Pizza in Bushwick, Brooklyn, for their first date."Two months later, Alice asked to move in.
"I actually had to run most of the way to meet her because I took a cab that got stuck in traffic.
"We did the discount marriage, which was just the way we wanted to do it," says Steve.
They said they may someday do a more formal ceremony but would rather spend money on more "important things." They both love the beach and swimming in the ocean, which explains why they moved from NYC to Florida in August, to a place with an ocean view.
The pair were married in 2009 and have been living in Manhattan ever since.
They have a rich and active life full of family activities with their extended families, as well as group events through their temple.
"She mentioned she was looking for a bike," he says. I made some suggestions of bikes, kind of baiting to see if she’d want me to go along and look."Instead, Alice went ahead and just bought one of the bikes David suggested.
