I decided to try the Upward dating app as a last resort to find a match. At first, my expectations were low, but then I matched with Eric, and we hit it off instantly. I didn't reply to his message right away, but eventually, we started talking and went on our first date on November 14, 2023. We felt an instant connection and knew we needed to keep seeing each other. Now, in January 2024, we feel blessed to have come this far. We never expected this, but it's a testament to God's perfect timing.
