Part 1: Adventure Begins Online
Rebecca began using some popular dating apps like Tinder and Bumble. She enjoyed getting to know new people while comfortably curled up in her bed with Bella, her adorable black lab retriever. However, one day she bumped into Jack’s profile.
Jack was interesting – his smiling eyes spoke volumes through his pictures; he was thoughtful in conversation and shared Rebecca’s love for indie rock bands and horror novels. They clicked almost instantly; their chats doing more than just scratching the surface of basic introductions.
