Kevin and I found each other when we thought our lives were over.... we found a loving, soulful existence with each other and we what a great project to take on...a crazy, dilapidated, flower pot of a house. We are making it into a home : ) Life was not good for years, and now it's wonderful!

Jerry and I finally met for our first date on June 10th, 2011. We had chatted online a few years earlier on a dating website and crossed paths again after 5 years. Coincidence or fate? We were engaged on June 10th, 2012 and plan to wed on you guessed it.. June 10th 2013! Somethings are just worth waiting for.

Any tips on how to add a caption? Having a lot of trouble!
Barbara L. Strain February 07, 2013 at 03:04 AM
Stacy, You have to add the caption when you add the photo. I don't think you can go back and edit. If you have added a photo you might want to go back and resubmit. Hope this helped! ~Barb

Matt and Meli. We are m&m! Adorably goofy together. Our pictures are self explanatory... We are pretty damn cute. Ha.

Looks like it didn't work in Chrome. Worked on Internet Explorer (yes, I actually had to use IE). =P Thanks!

I love Christine and Noah! They are beyond cute and when you see them in person it is so obvious they found true love with each other!
Stephanie Nolt February 08, 2013 at 03:41 PM
It didn't give me the option to caption when I uploaded the photo, but the image is of Stephanie and Lars.

Melinda and Kevin are the cutest couple of Rox..
Amy February 10, 2013 at 05:34 PM
I vote for Melinda & Kevin!!! #13 not just for the looks, but for their heart & soul!!
Marlene Schleifer February 14, 2013 at 07:46 PM
Can someone please explain to me why, if all of these couples are the epitome of cute in Roxborough and Manayunk, NONE of the prizes feature establishments that are located in Roxborough and Manayunk? You folks can't find suitable businesses in Man/Rox to offer prizes? I find that very hard to believe.
