Justin was standing off to the side and I asked him to come to dinner with us and he was very happy to do so. The four of us arrive at a local restaurant and Justin sits next to me.We realize both women are a bit intoxicated and while one cried, the other discussed fungus.It also never hurts to brush-up on your conversational skills!: ) The event we attended went smoothly and the hostess ensured everyone felt comfortable during what could otherwise have become an awkward experience.
He bought my dinner and drove me to my car afterward.Followed by the most wonderful honeymoon in France. On September 3, 2005, Tom and I were married at Mohonk Mountain House in New York state's beautiful Hudson Valley.Tom and I would not have met had it not been for a Pre-Dating event we both attended in April, 2003 in Dallas, Texas.Tom says I married him because he feeds me (he loves to cook), and while that isn't the primary reason, his good cooking certainly didn't hurt!I attended only one of the Pre-Dating events, begrudgingly I must add.I have ALWAYS believed in speed-dating and am so proud to have met my future husband this way.It balances the incredibly important need for face-to-face interaction with a nominal time commitment - until you decide otherwise.Fate must have intervened that day, since I was wait listed to attend that event.That afternoon, I received an email from Pre-Dating notifying me that there was an opening for two women at that evening's event.While I had a riding lesson scheduled that evening, the scheduled start time allowed me to attend both my lesson and the Pre-Dating event.Fortunately, the schedule didn't allow time for dinner.
