Amy moved on with her life, began dating and while she had a few relationships, none of them seemed to last. Amy admitted that friends would often give her advice about dating, saying “People would tell me, ‘Don’t be so open, Amy. Don’t trust so easily.’ But if I stopped doing that, it wouldn’t be me. It’s just absolutely nuts that I [was] the tragically misguided girl who was always let down.”

When Amy turned 32, she moved back to her hometown of St. Petersburg and was ready to settle down. In order to find the perfect guy, she joined an online dating site and it was then that her picture attracted the attention of Justin Pounders.
