Many, many congratulations to Lyneida and Manny for their incredible Zoosk success story! That video captures Manny’s real life proposal. It’s one of the most romantic things we have ever seen. Here’s how they met, as told by Lyneida:
Our story is still something I myself don’t always believe. My name is Lyneida and I had gotten on Zoosk by total curiosity at what a dating website was. I had no intentions on wanting to meet up with anyone. I was scared about the whole online dating thing, and I was going through a divorce and wasn’t fully ready to meet anyone seriously. But I was actually about to delete my account when I received this wonderfully written email. It was sweet and polite, and even though I had never responded to anyone on the website, I decided to write him back since he took the time to write me.
We emailed back and forth, and got on each others Facebook. It took me a few weeks, but we finally exchanged phone numbers and started texting. (I was scared, and paranoid lol). Finally after a little over a month we had our first date on January 20, 2010. It was the best date of my life. We started seeing each other after then non stop.
6 months into the relationship, in love with each other, Manny got diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma and went through 6 months of chemotherapy and one month of. Radiation. It was really hard, but he says I was his angel that came at the right time when he needed me most. And he did the same for me, with my divorce in my abusive relationship. He showed me what true love is, and what beautiful love can really be.
December 10, 2011 he proposed to me, and what better way than to show you. On December 15, 2012 we got married, and it has been a wonderful 8 months of marriage and almost 4 years together!!!! THANK YOU ZOOSK!!!! Truly and from the bottom of our heart and soul we thank you! We are so truly blessed to have found each other!!!
How amazing is that? We wish Lyneida and Manny all the very best as man and wife!
