PR Connections #10


A blogging website was responsible for the meeting of Greg V. and Andrea D., both users of Pop Candy. Now, the two plan to get married! Here’s The Scoop:

“Greg shares the story of their relationship:

Andrea and I first started chatting in the daily forum sometime back in 2008. Our avatars were the first thing we noticed about each other: She liked an old passport photo from when I was 4; I liked a Calvin and Hobbes picture she used. Soon, it went from e-mails to phone calls. … By late 2008, we were talking almost every night for at least an hour.

After some convincing on my part, our first date happened in January 2009. She flew to San Antonio, and I took her to see the sights of my town. In the year and a half that followed, there were more flights, some drives from SA to Oklahoma City (and vice versa), and many more phone calls. Since we don’t live in the same state, dates have been treasured with us.

I tell people that we probably would have never met if it weren’t for Pop Candy. So many differences exist between us, it’s hard to imagine how we would meet. I live in San Antonio, she lives in a small town outside OKC. I’m 5’5″, she’s 5’10”. I’m Mexican, she’s white. I went to the University of Texas, she went to the rival University of Oklahoma. But because of your blog, we met. Because we met, we fell in love. And now, we’re planning our future.”

  1. I think that is pretty cool that they met through blogging. The internet is becoming very popular when it comes to finding dates. Online dating is very successful and becoming lucrative for companies that offer it. When my parents got divorced they both re-married and found their spouses over the internet. I never even thought about meeting someone in a blog but it is a great place to find out a lot about someone that you don’t know. A blog is a place for a person to open up and express how they feel about certain things. You are getting to know a person without actually meeting them face-to-face. That is another reason for people to keep up with their blogs because you never know who is looking at it.
