I signed up; so did Ralph. No, they weren't lonely hearts clubs; it was just a way to meet people that supposedly had similar interests, education, and the like.
It was a lot of fun, opening the mail and getting names of guys who were potential dates. I met more people than I wish to reveal here!
I was on my second dating service when I met Ralph in 1985. We agreed to meet at a restaurant. I actually was there before him. He was so angry with himself that he was five minutes late!
We hit it off on the first date..he did most of the talking (nothing has changed) and I liked the way he told me all about his family and his life. I knew then how important family is to him!
Well, we tied the knot on May 10, 1986...and today we celebrate 24 years of marriage.
That sounds like a long time, but as we know, time flies when you're having fun.
I think we're having fun. I keep asking Ralph if we are, and he always says yes.
