Her birthday gift: a soulmate

Posted by Leticia, 11 May

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.”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

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.

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.

    well im glad it worked out for both, however been there and done that and just gets to b TOO much expense, one or the other has to leave the job and after a good job , and both had families on both sides to take care of, another sitiutation, if u dont have situtations on either side great, but if u do, thats why im not interested in LONG DISTANCE.

    Happy birthday to you. May God continue to bless you with many more. I was married to my guy for 25 years. He passed away 2 years ago. Now I'm waiting for God to send me another guy.
