Fate is such a strange thing, as you will see in this story. But we must give every effort and grasp each opportunity to make sure that fate does not slip away. I like to call her my "older sister Meng." Lynn Meng has long black hair, petite figure and warm smile. The first time I saw her was in our office. She is a friend of Ms Zhou, one of our agency's members who got married successfully. She is not very talkative, we spoke briefly. She just took the phone number of the photo studio we recommended and then left.

In general, before I post a lady's profile online, I make sure that I have a good understanding of her background and personality. She used to be an army geologist who charted terrain in the field for making maps. Later she joined the national railroad company and she retired in 2010. Her husband had passed away three years ago from cancer. During the time he was sick, she supported the whole family with her hard work. Lynn said, "During the first year after he passed away, I went swimming everyday, as in the water nobody could see my tears." You might not know it from looking at her petite figure, she once swam across the Yangtze River! Listening to Lynn talked about her life in such warm and gentle but also strong and resolute tone of voice, I felt very moved. She told me she simply wanted to find someone to share her love with.

In December 2010, a gentleman named Steve from the US wrote Lynn a letter. They exchanged letters for 1 week, then his letters abruptly stopped. After a few days, I reminded my "older sister Meng" that she could follow up with him and sent him another letter to see what was going on. From that day to May 26, 2011, they wrote to each other everyday. Lynn made a special folder to keep all the letters she got, the total was 380 letters. They really shared a lot in common. Lynn used to be an army geologist and Steve had been a pilot in the air force for 30 years. Both had lost their spouse and both had very close relationships with their children. Fate is important when it comes to love, but hard work is also indispensable.

Since joining our agency, Lynn began to study English 3 times per week. When Steve came to visit her, she had already filled a thick notebook with English notes, ready for their meeting. She always used translation software to diligently read all of Steve's letters. When she didn't understand something, she would ask me for help. Lynn prepared a blue notebook and put Steve's name and all his family members on the first page. Then in the following pages she recorded every small detail about their relationship, every time he talked about his family or his experience in the air force. She would also keep track of the exact dates he sent flowers, or when he gave her a necklace. Steve's letters were all very long and each one was full of love and affection for Lynn. The journey to love always has some bumps along the way. This couple which had been communicating so smoothly encountered a small problem in April. Steve kept saying that he would come to meet her in person in June, but kept delaying to buy his airplane ticket, and said he couldn't even find a flight online from Shanghai to Wuhan.

I started to get anxious, and you can imagine that Lynn's feeling must have been even stronger than mine. We spoke on the phone several times, and decided to talk about the issue with Steve during a Love Call. Lynn even tried to console me a bit and told me she was certain that Steve would come, but even if he didn't she would be ok. I am sure that before making the Love Call, Lynn has done much. She kept all the details in mind. During the three-way call, I was so surprised and happy, and I can only imagine how Steve felt on other end. After the call, Steve made his flight reservations to Shanghai. They agreed to meet in Shanghai. On the train to Shanghai, Lynn showed me her little notebook, filled with every detail about their relationship together. We greeted Steve on the morning of May 27 at the Pudong International Airport in Shanghai. He was wearing a nice suit and looked very handsome! He was a perfect gentleman. The following morning, they were studying English very hard. Seeing them huddled together with the English book, I knew it was love.

Lynn said that every time she read an English word correctly, Steve would give her a little kiss on the forehead. They gave me the feeling of a couple who had already been together for many years, so natural with their interactions. Steve would often come to me and ask what else he could do for Lynn, wondering if she had any particular likes or interests. He told me that he want wo try his best to make her happy. Lynn was also very considerate and tried to help Steve save money.Later I learned that after Steve retired from the air force, he worked several jobs. He currently worked at a water quality testing company as a department manager. He also had his own big house. Steve told Lynn not to worry about life in America. After Steve met with her family, they came into my office. Steve sincerely looked at Lynn and asked her if she wanted to marry him and spend the rest of their lives together. Lynn vigorously nodded her head in excitement.

There were also some bumps during the process of applying for the immigration marriage visa. Some of the materials that Steve prepared were incomplete and it took him a long time to get everything required, so they had to wait. On June 23, 2012 Lynn finally arrived in America. They got married in August.

    First date is always a worry for boys, girls, men and women since it directly decides the success of a romantic relationship, and we always take it seriously. So how to assure you don't make any social faux pas of the first date? Actually, we can drastically reduce the chance of messing up on the first date as only as you obey the simple rules below.

    1) Get well-prepared!

    Most of us are nervous about the first date. Just imagine, is there a time more apprehensive than waiting your girl to arrive in the bar? The answer should be definitely 'NO'! At this very moment, your mind is racing. You repeatedly ask yourself all these questions: "What should I say to her when she arrives?"; "Should I give her a kiss or a hug?". My personal solution is to get well-prepared. Have a greeting in mind and a first topic of conversation. Whatever topic you choose to start the talk, make sure to let it spoken out in a natural and relaxing atmosphere.

    2) Choose the right Venue for your first date.

    2) Choose the right Venue for your first date.

    Choosing the right place to have your first date would drastically shape the tone of your evening. To make a right decision, you need to consider both parties. I suggest letting your lady choose it first by listing a few different places. Even though the profile picture of your lady comes with a drink, it doesn't mean that she wants to get hammered. While once you confirmed she is a girl who gets used to bar and night club via the conversation, then a bar or a club is your first consideration.

    3) Be yourself!
