Janine Bezuidenhout

Married on Aug 19, 2017 in Gauteng

How we met....

Believe it or not but we met on a dating site called "singles to meet". Both of us weren't really big fans of dating sites, but though we had noting to lose by going onto one.

My husband was on the site longer than me, and found some people who made him question his decision to go onto the site in the first place. Eventually he never found someone on the site and decided one evening that he is going to go off of the site. As faith would have it, the night he decided he wanted to go off was the same night I decided to go onto the site. So I saw him on the site and sent him a message. Something in message attracted him to chat with me, and so he did.

From then on we were both smitten. One could say I made the first move...but don't tell him that hehehe.

We chatted a while but one first date we knew we would marry. A year and 6 month later we said I do.
