Everything happens for a reason...
Having been single for a (very) short time, and working away from home, I decided to distract myself from the boredom of a hotel room by joining a dating site for some innocent flirtation. Google came back to my search of 'free dating sites' with Oasis at the top of the page.
Adding a quirky little message and my best profile picture, and feeling slightly self-conscious, I set up my profile.
Scrolling through all the recommended profiles I came across one that particularly stood out to me, on the first page. His description pretty much matched my requirement; his picture was sexy and cute. Going with it, I clicked 'flirt'. I actually thought ‘he is way out of my league’.
To my surprise he flirted right back that night and within the week we were chatting nightly. Two weeks brought texting, phone calls and our first date (complete with a friend lined up to save me, 'just in case'), and we really hit it off.
Fast forward 8 months and we are still going strong, we have enjoyed a romantic holiday to Ibiza (yes romantic!), which is where the picture is taken. Next year we are looking forward to a trip to New York and moving in together.
It just goes to show, after years of bad relationships, real love and happiness does exist. Thanks to Oasis, and a little bit of fate!
