Her Story:
Where else, but on BlacksSngles could a Celtics fan and a Lakers fan meet and fall in love? *smile*
The distance at first seemed daunting, but we are making it work. Very few times in your life do you meet someone and know with such certainty that this is the person with whom you wish to grow old. I was beginning to think it would never happen again for me and then I met Charles.(Iwaslooking4u2) No pretenses, just a heart of gold and an attraction that keeps a smile on my face and gives me goosebumps. We appreciate and celebrate and/or accept our flaws and differences which allows our love for each other to grow unconditionally.

Thank you BlackSingles,

Renee (Cafeaulait22)

His Story:
I met Renee quite by chance. I had just renewed my subscription thinking just like the other times I was on the site I would meet someone, yet there would always be that something missing. Then I saw her profile, her introduction was short, but according to the site we were a good match for each other. Throwing caution to the wind I contacted her never expecting to get a response from her. To my surprise, she responded after a few emails, we exchanged numbers and our first conservation lasted over an hour as did the second and the third. However it was not long that I realized that I had met the one. Our first meeting was something out of Hollywood, it was as if we had always been together and it has only gotten better since then. I like to say it was love at first sight. But as the song says, I think I loved her before I met her. She is everything I ever dreamed of in a woman. In 2011 we will unite before God and man. I never thought I would ever meet someone as amazing as Renee on line. Blacksingles, I thank you for making one man's dreams come true.

***Updated 9/8/10***
Charles and I have set a date for March, and wedding plans are under way. The reaction from family and friends has been positive, although the on-line dating still makes some folks leery. When that happens ,I direct them to your site to view some of the other success stories. Charles and I are blessed to have found each other on opposite sides of the country. We are so excited to begin the second half of our life together.
We'll keep you posted. Thanks again BlackSingles.

What we feel made our experience successful: We both realized early on that we are who we are and accepted each other’s quirks and flaws. We are still learning, but an undeniable love for each other makes for a strong foundation. We both agree that “patience” is the key.

As mentioned in our first BlackSingles feature, it was love at first sight. Charles quoted the song “I knew I loved you” by Savage Garden. I held back at first, but I felt the same way. I knew I loved him before I met him. We met in June 2010. He proposed shortly after, gave me a ring just before Thanksgiving and we were married March 19, 2011. We had a small, beautiful wedding and Charles said his personal vows to me impromptu with Charlie Wilson's "You Aare" playing in the background.

Talk about bringing tears to woman's eyes..*smile*. It is so incredible at this point in our lives to have found each other. I have relocated to Southern California and though I miss Boston, family and friends, I am truly happy and blessed to be able to share the rest of my life with the love of my life.

Thank you again, BlackSingles.
