My Sweetheart was introduced to me by my cousin, Terrie, through email. She was quite the wordsmith in her email with the subject line: A Woman for You. She started by saying:

"Someone to warm the cockles of your heart and bright enough 
to carry a conversation and nice enough 
to bring into a room with family or friends in it"

Well with an introduction like that who wouldn't be interested. I mean I sound like Mary Poppins. She gave him details about me and then ended with my email address. He considered if for about 2 days and figured he didn't have anything to lose to begin correspondence with me (a.k.a. The Woman).

He's the one in the overalls.
His email started with this snazzy pick-up line:

So.... I'm some random guy that Jeff and Terrie know.
I'm single, you're single, were both LDS,
so we should be perfect for each other, right???

I decided that I'd like a new pen pal....and that is where we started.

That is one heck of a line. I'm single, you're single....I'm surprised your first date wasn't your wedding!
