Helen & Jim

The one

Just when I had yet to meet anyone who caused my pulse to race, Jim joined the service. I looked at Jim's profile as he was living near to me and was in the army. My ex-husband had once been an army officer and I found myself thinking PARSHIP and army were not a natural association. It was curiosity, nothing else...

Jim contacted me by thanking me for my message (I had viewed his profile and not sent a message). He was so cheeky that I replied. Jim had only been on PARSHIP for a week. We exchanged messages and within days phone numbers. We spent 2 hours talking on our first call. He is in the same regiment as my brother-in-law, he shares the same first and last name as my first love at uni and also comes from the same city (yes, it's a girl thing this fate business!).

We met 1 week later, we are both divorced and both had no expectations. Although it was not love at first sight (we are over 40!!) I knew he was the one. No, he was not a 98% match (69% in fact) but who can explain chemistry... it's there or it's not...

3 months later we are moving in together...as we spend most of our spare time together. I think people will think it rash or too hasty, but life is short, you rarely get a second chance of happiness so you just have to seize it!
