Janene & Glen

Cresent Hold, ACT

In the Beginning... 

When Janene was matched with Glen she decided to take her time and assess all her options. Although she didn't contact him straight away, she was curious about him and so wen to his profile to check him out. To her surpise, Glen hadn't been matched with anyone else. Thinking that this might be a sign that there could be something unique and special between them, Janene decided to take a chance and write to him. 

From that point on emails began flying back and forth between the two. They were intrigued by one another and every time Janene received a message from Glen, girlish butterflies would fill her stomach. 


The First Date...

After a while of getting to know one another over email, Janene and Glen found themselves wanting to meet in person. Janene was cautious at first because she had been hurt before and wanted to take things slow. So they decided to meet for a coffee to see if there was any chemistry.

On the day they were set to meet, Janene had arranged for a girlfriend to go with her to make things a little more casual. She was nervous about meeting Glen because she hadn't done anything like it before. It wasn't long until her friend left as Janene quickly realised she had nothing to worrya bout. Glen was just as lovely in person as he was in his emails and he made her feel special right from the start. One hour quickly turned into four, as the pair whiled away the afternoon at the coffee shop chatting away and laughing.

Although they had already met for a drink, the couple's official first date happened at Glen's house where they shared a cozy movie night in. Although they were supposed to watch the television, they spent most of the night talking. It was a perfect date and they couldn't have felt more comfortable with one another.

The Proposal... 

Glen popped the question on a romantic trip away at Murrumarang Beach Resort at South Durras where they spent three wonderful days together. It was on the last day, as they shared a beautiful picnic dinner on the beach and watched the waves roll in, that Glen took Janene's hand in his and asked her to marry him. Janene was completely stunned as they had been dating for a little over 3 weeks, and couldn't quite manage to say yes straight away. Glen calmly persisted with his question, seeking the answer he wanted to hear. Janene eventually managed to pull herself together and tell him "Yes!"

The Wedding...

The couple said their vows in May 2011 surrounded by close friends and family. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Janene's feet haven't touched the ground since.
