Tyler Couple Finds Wedded Bliss Online

When Maureen and Kit Parkhill tell people that they met and fell in love online, the response usually is: 'You're kidding?' or 'Really?' or 'Amazing!' Both have been married before and are divorced. But they decided to take another chance at love in cyberspace at match.com. Kit was the first to see Maureen's profile and saw they had similar careers and the same interests and hobbies. "I went whoa this is just almost sounds too cool! Even though she's in Houston it's worth an email. I've got to send this gal an email!" says Kit. Maureen replies laughing, "I emailed him back and said if you think we have a lot in common did you read my address because I live in Houston and you live in Tyler" But long distance didn't get in the way of pursuing a relationship, neither did a first date that landed Maureen in the hospital after a peanut allergy attack. "We're getting the restaurant manager, we're calling the ambulance, the fire truck shows up, the emergency room doctor is in the restaurant," says Kit explaining that dramatic night. The whole time Kit was by her side, and after several more weeks of weekend visits they knew it was forever. This coming April, Maureen and Kit will celebrate their one year wedding anniversary, with no regrets about taking the chance on pointing and clicking their way to love. "When I tell someone our story they always say I wish my son and daughter would do that because it's so hard to find good people. It's hard finding good people in the right places, I would recommend it to anybody of any age," says Maureen holding her husband's hand.

The couple now resides in Tyler. This is their first Valentine's day as a married couple. She surprised him with a little pampering including a pedicure.
