Celebrating and Elevating Black Women - mind, body, soul and spirit! Women complain about the jerks, scumbags and sleaze balls that troll around on that site looking for fresh meat like jackals in the wild.
Despite these discouraging tales, the shocking truth about the Plenty Of Fish dating site is that people are actually finding love. Not just love — interracial love. They represented — not only for POF, but for Swirl couples worldwide. Meet Chassitie and Josh Thornton.
They met on Plenty Of Fish. My husband and I currently live in Fairbanks, Alaska — his current duty station. In Fall of we will be moving to Yelm, Washington his home town for our next duty station — Fort Lewis. We have been together for 13 months.
We officially met the day after my birthday. We currently have no children at all but would like to start our family when he returns from his current deployment. We want at least 3 children I want five though! We met through a message on POF.
It was a social website for people trying to find friends or a date. My overall goal was friends. I grew up in a small town in northern California and was a tomboy who always hung out with the guys. So having just moved I wanted to make some friends. I wrote him telling him about having just moved and that I was looking for friends to hang out with and hike, play video games or watch movies with. We talked for a day or two about our hobbies and interests and then I gave him my number.
We made plans to hang out, but never got around to an actual day. Then came my birthday. I was out getting my hair done when he texted me to wish me a happy birthday. It was then that I asked him if he wanted to hang out — I wanted to look at outdoor gear and camping stuff. So the next day he came and picked me up.
I knew I loved him a little over a week after we first met. I knew I had feelings for him before then but later I was certain I loved him when we took our first shower together. We just held onto one another. I felt so comfortable and so safe and so secure. My wife and I have this thing we do where we reminisce on the moments of our relationship, and one of the questions that comes up is when I knew I loved her. The answer is always the same. I knew I loved her the moment we met. But she was the first to say it.
I love his sensitivity, his softness, his strength, his understanding and his patience. But above all, I love that he is family oriented. Family is the biggest priority in my life. Our first year of marriage was hard because we faced — I faced — a few personal hardships.
But she was always there for me, she was my rock. She always knew exactly what to do or what to say to make me feel better and put a smile on my face. I never tried to impress my wife. When we first met I was wearing Wranglers and a t-shirt. More To Come For those of you who are still skeptical, we have something for you: They all met on Plenty Of Fish.
