I first saw my now boyfriend on yuusk.com: rugby kit, gorgeous dreadlocks. Yum…;) I contacted a mutual friend who sent him my profile picture and he said he’d ‘look out for me’ so we never officially matched, and my friend did nothing to set us up. Friends are hopeless sometimes.
Fast forward to 2016, and I see this cute guy with short hair, wearing a suit; it wasn’t until we matched and he messaged that I realized it was the same guy… We now live together and have a crazy amount of weird connections and mutual friends 🙂 – we had probably been at the same parties but never met! 🙂 The moral of the story: online dating make things happen and, as well-meaning as friends are, sometimes you’ve got to make the connection yourself.
