ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Amy Giberson and Justin Pounders, both 33, were two young singles looking for love. Both Amy and Justin decided to join the dating website Match.com to see if they could pair up with other singles in their area. Guess who they found? Each other! Justin said that when he saw Amy's picture, there was just something about her that drew him to her and made him want to get to know her.
The two began texting back and forth, and calling each other every night. Finally they set a date to meet. Amy says of that first meeting, "We hugged, and it was like I had known him my whole life." The couple saw each other every day after that, and quickly fell in love.
Almost a year later, the couple was enjoying another date together when Justin casually mentioned that he liked the name "Amy" because he had known an Amy when he was just a little boy in preschool. He had something of a crush on this little girl, but they were both too young for much to come of it. During elementary, middle, and high, they went to different schools, and soon that first innocent love was forgotten. Amy joked that she didn't want to hear about this "other" Amy because it wasn't her. But after talking further, they discovered that they had indeed attended the same preschool as children.
When Amy went home that evening, she asked her mother to see if she could find any pictures of her pre-K years. Her mom did. There was a picture of Amy happily sitting next to a little boy. The little boy was Justin! Apparently, Amy's feeling of "having known him all my life" wasn't too far off!
Though Justin is still waiting for "the right time" to propose, the couple is as good as engaged. They've even picked out a honeymoon spot and decided on a wedding date! I guess that leaves just the question of "will you?"
