A busy schedule and a string of dead-end dates left Jenn, 26, less than enthused about her nonexistent dating life. In August, the Jacksonville, Florida, couple were engaged.But at a friend’s suggestion (read: peer pressure and wine), she caved and created a Bumble account. Here, Jenn shares the sweet story behind their zero-to-60 relationship.
I had always thought dating apps were for people who only want to hook up, and that wasn’t what I was looking for.
My thinking was that I’m not going to meet anyone that is driven and has good morals online.
Then he took me to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first official date.
Most parents tell you that having children is the best thing that ever happened to them.
I thought he was attractive, obviously, and I could also tell from his pictures he loved to travel, which is something I love too.
It was especially nice to have the chance to do a little more digging around with mutual friends before we started talking.But because babies have so many needs, it's easy to start neglecting your own.To truly meet your baby's needs, though, you have to meet yours first, Kerner says. "It takes happy parents to raise a happy baby." So don't feel guilty about snagging some "me time" or stealing away with your partner for a weekend.Besides, I was working crazy hours and had no time to go out on dates anyway.But over a few glasses of wine one night, my friend convinced me that I needed to meet someone and go out, so I signed up for Bumble. A big part of the reason that I swiped his profile was because we had so many friends in common [Bumble connects you through Facebook friends].At the time, I lived in this condo that had gable fences, and when he picked me up, he said it was like a fairy tale.
