Irene & James

Dear Spark.com,

I met James when I was 49 years old and living in Cottondale, Alabama. I had placed profiles on a few online dating sites, but with very poor results. My daughter Christine suggested that I try AmericanSingles. I had nothing to lose, so I joined under the username Irenebama2000 and I knew exactly the kind of man I was looking for.

A few days later, after a very tiring day of work, I checked my email and saw that I had a message from BigRedd36274 at AmericanSingles. I looked up his profile and he was exactly what I was looking for. His name was James, he was 53 years old and he lived about two hours from me in Roanoke, Alabama. We began to trade emails, and eventually I gave him my phone number.

Our first date was on February 27th 2003. We hit it off right away and spent a wonderful day together. It didn’t end there. From that day on, we spent every weekend together; even though sometimes I had to work at my job in a nursing home. James was so thoughtful that he brought me a dozen long stemmed roses every time we saw each other.

On April 5th 2003, we became engaged and we were married on July 19th, 2003. The wedding took place in a wonderful old county church. That day still brings tears to my eyes. If it wasn’t for AmericanSingles, I never would have met this wonderful man.

P.S. He still brings me a dozen long stem roses every week.

Irene and James
Roanoke, Alabama
