6 years ago, I had just moved to Phoenix AZ and thought it would be good to get out and start making new friends.
I joined a website called match.com and began setting up meetings with a # of women. Now I learned quick that it was going to be real expense if we met for dinner(and I always believed the guy should pay) also if there wasn’t and easy connecting almost immediately, I knew this wasn’t going to work out even as friends, I couldn’t wait to get the hell out.
I further realized that meeting for a drink would not be a good idea either. After 2 or 3 drinks, even I start looking good to others! So I hit upon the idea of Coffee and Conversation. We would meet at a coffee shop…. I chose Starbucks as they were plentiful in the area and most everyone could find them.
It gave both parties an easy out if there was not a connection.
Jan. 6, 2007, I was meeting this lady at a Starbucks in Tempe, AZ. She was a few minutes late that day. She walked in, we recognized each other from our posted pictures, grabbed some coffee and sat down. We sat there for 3 hours, just talking. We moved later to a small outside restaurant and sat outside have some hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine.
5 hours that evening and we had felt that we knew each other for ever.
Like the line in When Harry Met Sally goes…. when you know you want to spend your life with someone you want it to start right now. We’ve been together almost daily for over 6 years!
This morning as a surprise I (Dave) posted a video on Facebook wishing Joy a Happy Valentine’s Day and spoke of how we met 6 plus years ago. Joy loved it and within 30 minutes had made her own video and spoke about her version of how we met!
Later in the day we decide to both sit in front of the camera, aka “When Harry Met Sally” and allow the world to see both of us talking about the events of the year beginning 2007.
I’ve combined all 3 videos here… total time under 11 minutes…. Hope you enjoy
A Valentine Story…. My Version, Her Version and then the Truth!
This is just the beginning! I love you Deb-Joy!
