One evening I decided to take a look at the contact requests I'd received on PARSHIP. I wasn't feeling very hopeful about finding someone ... and then I spotted Emma's profile. I knew I just had to meet this woman. She wrote in such a compelling, original and appealing way. I sent her a slightly cheeky contact request ... She replied and we developed a lively exchange of emails. Then Emma's computer packed up. She sent me a last-ditch email from an Internet café with her photo and mobile number. When I saw the photo I knew that it was meant to be. I called her straight away and we arranged to meet. When we finally got together there was an immediate spark. Since we live quite far apart we are only able to see each other at weekends, but we know that it's the real thing between us.
