My bestfriend and soulmate
I was just out of a relationship, and looking to socialise and make new friends when I tried my hand at Oasis… I figured either I’d make new friends or I’d explore 'internet dating'!
Because of my unique and unusual interests, I was unfortunately becoming used to the pattern of dating the usual 'generic' types...I did pray even fretted at times; that somehow, somewhere, someone as unique and similar to me existed, and I guess I hoped oasis would lead me to that person..
That same week, of checking my requests, I decided to take a friends advice, and look in my 'matches' column, I saw a face, and eyes, that urged me to read a very distinct and unique profile, that still sticks with me today.
I can't explain how excited and keen and dumbfounded I was to read a profile, and interests, that matched mine. That same night, we spoke all night long, until morning, covering every topic we were passionate about. Chatting wasn't enough until meeting… I had my doubts on whether he was even genuine, or just saying everything I wanted to hear!
Upon meeting, I discovered a very special, very unique and beautiful shy guy, who in-turn made me very shy and even awkward at times, it was a memorable date, and the best date I have ever had. There were sparks and electricity and amazing chemistry, and a lot in common. Somewhere along that amazing journey of discovering each other, I became more ill, with my ongoing health issues..
Our relationship/friendship was put under many daunting trials and there was so much to overcome. In times of hardship, he was my best friend and reassurance. And gave me hope when my own family were not there. He was my family, and even my career. With his help, dedication, devotion, and attention to my needs, he helped my condition pull through and I am the healthiest I’ve ever been thanks to him alone.
I look back often, and I see all the coincidences, things in common and how strong my bond is to this person, and I know we were always meant to meet. I could never meet this type of quality person in a bar or pub!
I have always believed in soul mates and finding one's counterpart… I don't believe it was meant to be easy either. Love can be a journey, sometimes a very painful one, but one worth taking, to find your other half, and become whole again… That is how this person makes me feel, and oasis certainly brought me the greatest gift in my life. And that's an eternal friendship.
So I’d been on this site for a few months I’d spoken to a few people but never met up with anyone, I’d seen a guy’s profile on here an never thought to contact him as he didn't seem my type, I gave up after a while an stopped logging on but one day I came on an checked my emails..
The same guy had emailed me and I emailed him back with my phone number as I wasn’t on this much but didn’t expect a reply, a few days later I got a message from him and we started chatting from there. Eventually we met up after a few weeks of chatting I was unsure whether he was my type but everything went so well!
We've now been together just over a month his family like me and surprisingly mine like him!
He makes me feel so happy and for once I actually feel happy with myself in a relationship.
So I say to anyone here don't give up! There’s someone out there for you and don’t overlook someone because you never know you could be overlooking your soul mate!
North loves South
I started chatting online to my husband at the end of December 2012, although it didn't go smoothly as we kept missing each other, when we did speak we realised that we lived and worked so close to each other but had never met!
We got on so well, and arranged to meet in our local coffee shop on 6th January 2013, he did message me the night before saying he didn't think it would work, so I told him you can't say that until you try, I'm really grateful we did because as soon as we met it felt like we had known each other forever.
Within 3 months he had moved in and he proposed in April, life has been fantastic, funny and so, so special, and on November 5th 2013 we got married and had an amazing day. Thank you SO much Oasis for bringing us together xxx
I had not been on Oasis for long when I met my guy on there. He was sweet, loving and we talked for hours on the phone. Soon after we both decided to meet. He does have a child and I love them both very much!
We are still together now and it is great!
