Her birthday gift: a soulmate

Posted by Leticia, 11 May 11

Shannon saw online dating as a way to get to know people she wouldn’t otherwise meet.  She signed up on our site to explore those exclusive opportunities for love…

Geir sent Shannon a Flirt all the way from Norway.  He was definitely someone she wouldn’t otherwise meet, and for good reason.  Talk about your long-distance relationship!  “I was really reluctant,” Shannon admits.  “But he was so genuine and persistent that I was bowled over.”

Despite the difficult circumstances, both singles saw the promise of something special here.  As they began communicating via Skype, Shannon and Geir started to realize that some relationships don’t need to make sense to be worth pursuing.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

To put that theory to the test, they met in New York City.  Their first date happened to fall on Shannon’s birthday.  “From the moment I saw him in person, I knew it was meant to be,” Shannon declares.  “I thought he was so gorgeous!  Great smile, sweet kisser…a sweet, sweet man.”

Shannon says that the powerful magnetism between them was just the final piece of evidence that love would transcend geography in this case.  “We both just ‘knew,’” she says.  Geir’s honest nature also stood out for her.  “He’s not just a ‘talker.’  He walks the walk!”

Shannon and Geir were married on September 3, 2010.

    Beautiful, I think you just know when it is right. I should give up London but I just can't because I can't figure out what happened, all of a sudden communication just stopped, email no longer responds. I should stop but I can't. Michigan and London are far from each other. I think I will wait
