Kevbe was well-established in his work as pharmacist when he came to CatholicMatch. The 35-year-old raised in Ghana & England had come to the United States to study biochemistry twelve years ago, got multiple degrees and settled in Staten Island. The next step was to find the special someone to share it all with and that pursuit brought him to CatholicMatch.
Joy was new to the idea of online dating, but was open to meet people and socialize, seeing the online venue is just another way to live out life to the fullest.
It was Joy who found Kevbe online, coming across his profile, but she didn’t make first contact. Kevbe saw her in his “encounters” list and sent her an emotigram which she quickly returned. That led to increased messaging, during which they found out they are originally from the same country, and inside of two weeks they were meeting face-to-face.
Joy lives in Ontario, and it was a roughly nine-hour drive for Kevbe to come and see the 26-year-old who had so captured his interest. The connection in person was as real as it had been over the phone and through their Skype video calls.
“Joy is non-materialist and caring,” Kevbe told CatohlicMatch. Not only are her priorities right, but he was also attracted to her studious nature and cheerful personality, further adding that she possess the vital intangible quality to any relationship, in that “she just gets me.”
One thing Kevbe and Joy both “got” was been open to friendship and not exclusively focusing on romance. Kevbe’s profile was warm and inviting, saying he didn’t predetermine “type” and anyone was welcome to get in touch with him. He knew the worst that could happen was that he made a friend. Joy’s outlook was similar—they had a chance to meet new people and make new friends.
As it turns out, they found more. When Kevbe returned to Staten Island after that initial visit, he and Joy were back to Skyping and talking on the phone as natural as they’d been before. The relationship is still in the developing process, but all signs are good for an engagement in the near future.
