Amanda Brown

Amanda Brown, working actress and mother of three, shares, "I remember clearly how we 'met,' we went to junior high school together. We were in different classes. We knew many of the same people. I was way more popular than he was though, so he kept to himself, and we simply said 'hello' and 'bye' to one another. My distinct memory of him was at a party. I had to leave rather early. My step-father came to pick me up, and as I was leaving, he pulled me to him and asked me to dance. I remember saying to myself, 'Wow, he is hot!' It was the first time I realized how cute he was, but we were young. I was a good girl raised more conservatively, so nothing ever happened." "We went onto different high schools and different colleges, and once we went to college, we found out about He and I became friends through Prominent singles, and so every so often, I would check in on him — never, ever did I write a message or leave a comment. So it wasn't until after school when he reached out. He came to see [me once] and took me to grab a bite. We didn't speak for a long time after that, years I believe, and so one day, I see an inbox with a long, beautiful compliment. We went a long time just talking online and then eventually moved through text. I didn't know that I would fall in love with him then, but looking back maybe I should have. It was always just so comfortable, no pressure, and he was always just so open to all my quirky ways. We have been together for two years, and I never thought that it would be him to have me feeling like this. If it wasn't for the online dating world, who knows what could be our realities now?"
