Thank You Letters


The start of you and I

When I joined the Idate Asia website, I was thinking that this was a waste of my time. And then for a very long time I thought that I was right. Day after day reading emails from girls and women that I didn't have any real feeling about. I talked to a girl from China for awhile. I talked to a girl in Bangkok for awhile. Both times I was disappointed. I had been alone now for almost 4 years and was starting to think that I would be alone the rest of my life. I dated a few girls but nothing felt right to me. One day while deleting emails from that dating site I stopped when I came across a girl named Dawn that made me read more. It was like a light had been turned on and I had a renewed hope that maybe she was someone I could talk to.

The letter Dawn sent to me first talked about finding someone to help her have a family with. I explained to her that I was older and that not only had I already had children but that I also had 8 grandchildren. She then explained that we didn't need to have our own children to be a family and that we two together would be a family. She also said that she thought that she also was beyond the age where children were a part of her future.

So with that said we then sent emails to each other everyday. With each letter I was more and more thinking that she was maybe what I was looking for and what I was needing. After a few weeks I had a chance to go to Thailand with my best friend as he was going to Thailand to bring his Thai wife of 7 years back from her vacation. He had asked me to go with him every year but I never went because I didn't really have a reason before. This time I said yes. I was excited to have a chance to meet this girl who had made me believe again. Dawn finally gave me her phone number so that I could call her when she got off the plane. We agreed to meet at a shopping mall so that she wouldn't feel to afraid to meet me. My friends were there also and I think that made her feel better as well.

I can tell you that the moment I saw her I was soo nervous. I am not the nervous type. I am far from being shy but this girl made me afraid to say anything. I was not acting like myself. I didn't know what to say and let the conversation go on without me. My stomach was in bad shape from being so nervous. Not long after that meeting I called her and said that I wanted to see her again. I thought for sure she would tell me that she had to work or something just to not see me again. The smile on my face is still there when she and I made plans to meet again.

We only spent about 6 days together while I was in Thailand but that was the best 6 days in my life. I promised to come back to her and we have talked everyday since. After I returned to America I knew that Dawn was the girl I wanted to marry. I asked her to marry me and I think she was surprised. But she said yes. The Visa process is ongoing and Immigration has had the paperwork for over 3 months now. If we get the Visa back in time we will be married in July.

I want to thank your website for changing my life. This wouldn't be possible without the bridge you created to help us find each other. Dawn is only 4' 10 " tall and weighs only 97 lbs. But she is the biggest thing that has ever happened to me.

Thank you,
