John Maier Sona Howell tells SheKnows, "We got married on Pi Day this year because it's a once in a lifetime moment 3. You see, the backstory is that I was interviewed by a TV Asia reporter at a conference that I attended. She was so impressed by my enthusiasm that six months later she asked me to blog on her online magazine. She wanted me to talk about my experiences as an Indian born in America and the dating scene here, as a relationship expert of sorts.
I decided then that I needed to take down my online profiles and start to meet people in the real world. I looked down and noticed that he only lived ten minutes from me, and so I threw caution to the wind and sent him a message. I invited him out for a drink and to play darts at a pub that was halfway between us. I heard the tiny ding of the notification on my phone when I realized he'd responded back, and positively, even enthusiastically.
It's funny, still, when we look back on it and realize that we were both so nervous we almost didn't go. That would have been sad because we're made for each other. So, for us, the only thing that kept us apart was the meeting. We didn't need the profiles, the contents never made a difference. I just saw his adorable face and happened to fall for the man of my dreams. The language of love Image: Julie Herniak Julie Herniak shares her online dating success story that sounds more like a delightful rom-com than real life.
Herniak, with a wedding date set for May , sets the scene, "A Polish Canadian living in Spain met a Frenchman living in La Reunion. We met on the internet, and we started emailing each other. He knew little English, and all I knew in French was 'Bonjour' and 'Je suis Julia. He came online, and he was super cute with a heavy French accent and started to speak English. I would pre-write my French sentences and struggle with accenting the words correctly. Sometimes I would have Google Translate do the talking for me.
I am now providing audio recordings of my voice saying all the irregular English verbs in the past, past continuous and future conjugations. He is listening to the audio files and learning English at the same time. I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there's a year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart. So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.
Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. I gave him my phone number and he texted me, "Hi, Hannah, it's Matt. And that was it. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later.
We went on a hike, and we put wine in water bottles and had a little picnic at the end of the hike. Neither of us was looking for anything super-serious, but we kept hanging out regularly and it just kind of happened without either of us noticing. I have a son from a previous relationship — Jackson, he was 2 at the time — and they met and just really hit it off.
I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt. It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter. And you're not going to meet somebody at a bar if you're a single mom. So it saved me from meeting a lot of duds. Five months into dating, he proposed, but we had already been talking about it for a few months. He had met my son, so we had to ask: Do we have a future?
Is it worth dating and building a relationship with Jackson? We decided it was worth it, obviously. I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'm just going with it.

And I'm just like "Oh, that's great. How can I help you? So I saw that Khalil liked me, and at this point, it was kind of overwhelming to be a girl doing online dating — I needed to make a spreadsheet or something. But I liked him back, and he messaged me right away. His profile was kind of ridiculous. It was mostly just Nickelback songs. After doing online dating for a while, what I knew was I'd rather not spend a long time getting to know him.
If he seemed normal, we'd have a drink, rather than building up this idea of who he is. The courtship was pretty short and sweet. On the site we used, they have a question that asks the things you can't live without, and I wrote kajal, which is the Indian name for eyeliner. And he wrote to me that he thought kajal was bad for the eyes and something about the evil eye.
And then he joked that his parents were in town to get him an arranged marriage. I was just like, "OK, cool. Let's have a drink. I actually forgot his name — I only remembered that he was no. But when I met him, it was just so easy and great.
