Nothing irks me more than when I tell someone I’m single and they ask, “well have you tried that e Harmony or Match.com,” to which I reply, “No.
I’m not”I don’t know what it is about online dating, but I just haven’t gotten used to the concept—kind of like my mother being on Facebook.
Essence tells us she liked the website because she didn’t have to post a picture of herself — and ended up sending Jamie a message on Valentine’s Day because they were 97% compatible.
My breasts were bigger, I stood in front of my husband and said, "Honey, I think I’m pregnant."ESSENCE.com: How has pregnancy changed your life?What online dating did was offer me the opportunity to go out with a bunch of different people from different industries, I really didn’t want to limit myself with people who are in the entertainment industry.I wanted to date outside of the business but I didn’t have a network outside of the industry in L. I felt like going through the online system, it gave me permission to go out with someone once or twice and say, ‘you know it was really nice meeting you but I don’t feel any romantic chemistry,’ and everyone just kind of accepts that as ‘OK, thank you.’”I really appreciate Essence opening up about online dating which is still seen as a bit taboo in some respects.I can’t recommend online dating enough – you have to be careful and trust your instincts, but it’s a very targeted way to meet someone in your area who shares your values and is also looking for a longterm relationship.
Congratulations to Essence and Jaime and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together!Wade and Gabby requested for the both of them to do theirs.
