Thank Heaven for Second Chances
Dedicated to Jim
Submitted by Amy
My story begins in 1999 when I went on a first date with Jim, whom I met in a college class. Neither of us were pushing for a second date, but remained friends.
I moved away after graduating and dated a few less than ideal guys. I thought I'd never find love and always, in the back of my mind, I kept thinking about Jim and viewed him as "the one that got away."
The summer of 2003 I decided to take things in my own hands and look for love online. I kept thinking "Do I really want to do this? Who knows what kind of people are looking at these." But, Heaven sent me a blessing in the form of an email.
Jim sent me a note after seeing my profile online and I jumped at the chance to ask him out for our second date, almost four years after our first. And the rest is, as they say, history.
We are madly in love and wanting to get married in Hawaii to celebrate that love. We both love the beach and want to get married in the sand with our family and a few close friends there to witness.
