JDate: A Love Story. (Also, Vote For Us!)

Some of you may not know this, but Ramz and I actually went to high school together. Did you all know that? He was two years older, the lead in the school play every year and a total goody two shoes, whereas I spent my days torturing my math teachers and bribing the security guards with Starbucks in order to leave school during my free periods. Needless to say, our paths did not cross much. 

Two years after college I ended things with my on-again, off-again boyfriend whatever you wanna call it, and one night, after a bottle of wine and an awesome episode of Gossip Girl, my friend Brynn convinced me to join JDate. She filled out my profile and picked out my pictures. I was NOT into it. Definitely was more into the wine. 

Two weeks after I joined, I got a message from a boy who opened the conversation with "I know who you are, Jordan." 

Shockingly, I did not run screaming from the computer and immediately shut down my account, but rather, engaged in a conversation with this wackjob #sorrymom. And yet, after two initial dates in 2009, an entire year of no contact followed by an accidental-on-purpose "oops I meant to Gchat someone else and got you but hey how are you doing?" (on my part, I confess), and a few months of online flirting, two and a half years of dating have passed and now I am engaged to that wackjob.

Why are you getting all this backstory? WELL, it's basically to explain to you that JDate played a major role in getting me and Ram together. Sure, our paths might have crossed again in a bar or through a friend of a friend of a friend. But JDate made it happen for us, and for that, I am THE MOST thankful.

Which is why I am only SLIGHTLY embarrassed to tell you that we have entered ourselves in a contest to win a FREE HONEYMOON through JDate! If we win, we get a seven night stay in the Bahamas. I DONT HATE IT, YA'LL. 

So today, friends, I am asking you for a favor. PLEASE! Vote for us so we can win this thing! All you have to do is like the page and then click our video. You can vote ONCE PER DAY and I would be ETERNALLY grateful if you helped spread the word to your friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, randoms on the street... you name it.

Thanks so much for letting us be cheeseballs :)We are so excited to be engaged and are already counting down the days til we are MARRIED!!!

Every time I try to vote for your video it wants me to "like" the JDate facebook page first, which I do not want to do. Is there a way around this?

Can't you like it and then unlike it? Worth it for the chance to vote!
