Keith sent me a contact request just before Christmas. I wasn't a Premium Member of PARSHIP at the time, so I couldn't reply. After Christmas I decided to become a Premium Member and I haven't regretted the decision! Keith wasn't the only man I got into contact with through PARSHIP, but it was with him that things really led somewhere.
We took things further with a nice series of emails. We seemed similar in many ways and shared lots of interests, and there were lots of funny little coincidences in things we had both done. After about two weeks we spoken on the phone and decided to meet. I'd met men through other online dating services, but there had never been any chemistry. This time I was just ready to wait and see. I invited Keith over for supper, rather than meeting in a bar, which was what I'd done before.
The evening went very well. Keith turned up with a beautiful bunch of flowers and was much better-looking than his photo. We chatted so much that I overcooked the food a bit. While we were looking at each other's holiday photos we ended up kissing and we've seen a lot of each other since. Keith moved in with me in September and we are very happy together. It's not always easy to meet people who are on the same wavelength as you. PARSHIP isn't for people who just want to chat and you really have to think about who you are and what you want.
