Married in July 2009
From chezza, 11-Aug-2009
Well I 'met' my now husband Mark (El Bannedido) on MSE in June 2008, liked the look of him, followed his posts and got chatting by PM and phone, and then decided to take the plunge and ask him out on a date.
But I did it in public in the Dating Room cos I wanted to share our potential happiness with friends on MSE. Luckily Mark said yes and 2 weeks later we met up. From that day he made me laugh with his own special brand of humour,his wisecracks and anecdotes.
I fell in love with him shortly after and knew that I wanted to be with him. We met many times, Mark met my family and got on well with them and my kids liked him too. We had our ups and downs but our love overcame everything
Mark asked me to marry him on Xmas day 2008, and gave me a beautiful white gold diamond engagement ring.
We started our wedding plans, it wasn't easy but we got there and on July 25th 2009, 13 months after we first met I became Mrs Bannedido haha. A few of our MSE friends joined us to help celebrate the happiest day of our lives and it was a beautiful day. The weather was lovely, the hotel was lovely, the whole day was perfect. At the moment we live in Kent but will be moving to Sussex and spending the rest of our lives there,happy and content.
Thank you Gordon and MSE, for bringing us together. For all you cynics who dont believe in dating sites, see it does work !!
