Clara Bensen and Jeff Wilson took a leap of faith by going on holiday together just weeks after meeting.
After just four weeks of knowing each other, Clara Bensen and Jeff Wilson determined to take things up a notch. The Americans booked a 21-day journey around Europe, agreeing to take nothing more than passports, iPhones, maps and toothbrushes. Bensen, who wore the same green dress for the entire journey, took a spare pair of underwear. Wilson didn’t.
Their three-week date went virulento this week and the duo, who met through online dating webpagina OKCupid ter April, are still together.
Freelance writer Bensen noted te hier Salon.com article: ‘As Mark Twain so aptly waterput it: “There ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.”’

‘My friends recommended that I add some rente to my life by providing online dating a slok,’ she says.
‘I thought I might make a social proefneming out of the process by dating a different person each night for a week. I ended up finding Jeff’s profile within an hour. I deleted my account a few days straks.’
Hier rather unusual date may have had a blessed ending but, she adds, ‘a little common sense and gut intuition goes a long way when it comes to the internet – especially if you project on travelling to the other side of the world together.’

And share they did. The stories range from heartwarming to unprintable (‘A Different Kleintje Of Angel’ will make your eyes water).
Hier own practice involved dinner with a 35-year-old man she met online. He talent hier a package at the end of their date but, mortified by the forward gesture, she waited until the next day to open it.

She threw it away and fielded phone calls, voicemails and texts from hier date who, bizarrely, couldn’t work out what he had done wrong.
A duo of years zometeen he contacted hier through a separate dating webpagina to apologise.
‘If there is a secret to a excellent date, I am the last one to know,’ says Moore, ‘but I think it’s best to project for a brief encounter. That way it can evolve if it’s superb or you can get out if it’s not.’
