Let's be honest: Sometimes it is not an option to go to a social event, especially if your ex is there. But when this happy woman turned to Craigslist for a wedding date, she got far more than she expected!
A jealousy plan
When Jessica Huey was invited to a close friend's wedding in 2013, she was dreading the idea of attending the event alone. It was not just because she felt less empowered without a wedding date. Her ex-boyfriend was also present and she just had to make sure she was jealous. So she got into the plan to find a perfect date for the wedding.
Huey soon contacted Craigslist, where she uploaded her request for a date and a list of requirements for each potential worshiper. She admits that she may be a "wonderfully embarrassing wedding" because she has not contacted many people there. Nevertheless, Huey's advertising was not neglected. In fact, responses to her request for a wedding date poured in. Above all, an almost perfect answer caught her attention.
An incredibly perfect answer
Huey's heart was stolen by an email from a man named RJ Stieger. He responded to her Craigslist post because it reminded him of "The Wedding Date." Stieger fit all her requirements and then some, including being taller than her, knowing how to dance ballroom, and promising to make her ex-boyfriend jealous! But Huey was not ready to hand over Stieger.
Since Stieger did not take a picture of himself, Huey almost overtook him. However, due to his many attractive qualities on paper, he always returned to his answer. Finally, Huey decided to conduct an interview with Stieger. Instead of talking to him about the details of the wedding, they talked for hours. Soon her faux-date became something great than she had ever expected.
From Faux Friend to Unparalleled Soul Mate
While Huey had invited a fake friend to the event, Stieger and Huey started meeting before the wedding even took place. When they visited the event, they were in a serious, committed relationship! Huey did not feel the need to show her ex-boyfriend. In addition, Stieger stole the show.
Stiegers friendliness and his bubbly personality made him a hit in the wedding, Her faux-meeting story about helping with a "flat tire" entertained the crowd. Now, almost five years after the wedding, Stieger and Huey are planning their own special day! Who knew a Craigs ~~ POS = TRUNC can you lead to a dream man?
