This is a “true story” about how I met my boyfriend (now Husband) on a dating site on the Internet. It’s the unbelievable story behind it that’s truly amazing!
I used to hang out at a country bar called the “Club Palomino”. I loved listening to good bands there, and dancing to their country rock music. I used to drag my friend out to see my favourite band playing called “
seeing them playing there for a long time, the “Club Palomino”
closed down. Yes, the club had been sold. Wouldn’t
it a huge townhouse sub-division was put up and the club was gone. So
the bands and my favourite band, “
When I first found
out about the club closing down, I wanted to approach “
15 YEARS LATER:
As time went on I met someone and got married. That was a mistake. Eventually we got a divorce. I starting going out to bars, again, got tired of it and not meeting anyone decent enough. I wasn’t crazy about the bands playing at other bars either. Later, a friend told me to join a particular dating site on the Internet, which I thought I would never do. But, I thought I would check it out for fun as I heard so much about it through people even meeting their soul mates from that site. Surprisingly enough, I had a few dates, meeting in public places, but just didn’t find the right one and thought I never would from a dating site. I sort of gave up on it until one night. After getting home from a bar, which I hated, I went on my computer. For some reason I logged in that site again which I was really glad I did. I got an interesting email from a guy and liked his picture. I was also touched by his email and that he was also interested in my picture and profile. From then on we started emailing each other quite a lot from that site. We seemed to have so much in common through our emails. We continued writing and eventually got on MSN, and chatted for quite some time. He was Bulgarian and I was Hungarian, how common was that! We discovered from our MSN chats that we had so much in common. It was really amazing. Our families even lived in the same town of all places.
We chatted every night as often as we could. And then, a miracle happened! We started chatting on our computers about music. Wow…we also liked all the same music and we both wrote songs. I told him I liked country music and used to frequent a particular bar about 15 years ago, which had closed down. Of course he asked me the name of the bar back then. I told him the “Club Palomino”. He was really surprised and told me he used to play there. I wasn’t sure whether to believe him or not! He said he would send me a picture of his band that played there. I thought, “yeah right” to myself as I waited patiently in front of my computer for the picture. Lo and behold, a huge picture came up on my screen, “
After about 3
weeks of talking on the phone every night, chatting on the computer
pictures, we decided to meet. I was brave enough for him to pick me up
mother’s place as I developed this trust in him, by his voice and his
honesty. I met him downstairs in front of my mother’s apartment
He got out of his car, and the first thing we did was look at each
started laughing and laughing like crazy, and couldn’t stop
took me to the local Canadian Legion where we talked, had a drink
(still laughing) and we got more acquainted. Eventually we went
another room and sat down at a table. After a while, he asked me
didn’t mind if he got up on stage to do a solo. Hey, a man
his guitar was like being in heaven. He got up on stage and
playing his guitar and singing in front of an audience. That did
me. I was hooked! And the guy I admired 15 years ago
performing in front of my eyes, and, was my date! I was in
We dated for about 2 years and it was absolutely wonderful. Eventually we bought a condo and have been living together for 4 years now. Then, the final surprise! After moving into our condo, we looked out the window and to our astonishment what did we see? The office building of the dating site we joined of all things! What a coincidence that was! In March of 2008, it will be 5 years being together, playing music, and still laughing! We are just two peas in a pod!

he also remembered seeing us dancing while his band “
And by the way, that blonde girl he was with at the Club Palomino, was the girl he eventually married which lasted 8 years. He went through a brutal divorce. He did tell me that when I first saw him at the Club Palomino 15 years ago, that I should have approached him and told him “she was bad news”. It’s funny how life is – it just wasn’t meant to be back then. Fate brought us together. We met our “soul mates”!
We recently got married on
