Brodie and Zahra
Brodie: “I was 33 and newly single and really wanted to meet that special someone that I could settle down and have a family with. I’d heard about online dating and thought I’d give it a go and see what was involved.
I’d been on the site for a couple of weeks, sifting through the many that were matched by the computer (which I think is a great idea) and I stumbled across a picture of a stunning girl with an impeccable smile.
Now, I’m sure that Zahra actually sent me an Icebreaker first but she begs to differ. She thinks that I sent her a message directly first. I know I did send her a message first to say how much I liked her family values and enjoyed her zest for life. We emailed a bit and then she told me that her membership was about to run out so we took a chance and swap numbers.
After a few weeks of messaging, we decided to meet up for dinner. Zahra called me on the way to our date which was the first time we had spoken on the phone. She wanted to make sure that I didn’t sound like an Aussi Oka! I was waiting by the door and I saw a beautiful woman walk towards me. She was gorgeous; I didn’t know how she could be single!
I can honestly say it was the best first date that I have ever been on. We laughed so much and joked about how we had both organised to have our friends at the phones ready to call us with an ‘emergency’ in case we needed to get out of there! Luckily for us both, we had a cracker of a night and ended up being the lasts ones to leave the place!
We have been happily together for eight months and living together for four. I know she is ‘the one’.”
