It was a modern day fairy tale for S and K. They didn’t meet by bumping into one another on the way to class, nor did they meet in a local coffee shop as many movies often portray. No,the two simply met through the power of a dating app, OKCupid. Both just happened to be scrolling through numerous matches when they stumbled upon each other’s profiles. It’s not clear as to what went on through their heads that day, but fate had already worked its magic. Only time would tell what would happen next.
A few days after searching through his matches, K found her profile yet again. He thought for a moment about what it would be like to know her, to hear her voice. Eventually, K decided to message S. With her vibrant red hair, hazel eyes, and a bizarre profile, he just couldn’t resist. He simply wanted to know more about the mysterious girl that had sparked his interest.Once K had sent the message, all he could do was wait for a response.
While K was enjoying a relaxing night home, S was out and about with a couple of friends. She was laughing and having a blast when all of a sudden, her phone pinged. S wasn’t expecting a message from anybody and there wasn’t a new one in her inbox. Thinking she might have found luck within the app, she opened it. There, she saw she had a message and began to read. S was surprised that someone from the app was actually interested in her. So, she simply replied back after much discussion with her friends.
Weeks go by,and the two instantly hit it off. Staying up late texting and calling, K and S began to fall for one another. They decided to meet in person and further their already deep connection. That’s when they realized they had one major thing in common: The United States Marine Corps. K was a Marine trying to have successful military career, while S had been born to a Marine. This revelation sort of set S back a few because she promised herself she would never get involved with a Marine. She didn’t think she could continue that lifestyle, but here she was, getting falling so hard with one. But despite her promise to herself, she decided to give it a try.
And that’s how we met. All because of an app and connection to the Marine Corps.
I couldn’t be happier.
