Nina: It's strange how things happen... you
are trudging through the mundane weary lanes of life when suddenly,
out of nowhere, love walks in and touches your life in a way that you
know that nothing could ever be the same again...

My name is Agni and I am an MA student in
Lancashire in the United Kingdom of Great Britain.
I am 22 and hope to live here with Karl.
Karl, is 24 and works for a great telecomms company.
We met in Birmingham since that is where he
lives and that was the place where I did my degree in Media and Cultural
Studies. He studied Computer Science there as well but I never knew he
existed until..... (well, hold on! one thing at a time).
It was quite amazing how we met really. It was on the internet! In fact
it was ICQ! One cold night in December 1999, a person called Silver
Surfer popped on my screen and started talking to me. Oh well, I thought
another arrogant sex maniac! How wrong I was. He was really nice. We
started talking about things and it was quite amazing how many things we
have in common: music, both left handed, love pizza, we had same ideas
Emails were longer, hours spent online
longer as well. I think I spent three hours a day talking to him. Garfield was a
great connection, there was always a picture of that naughty cat in his
emails. I was receiving and sending so many e-greetings it was
unbelievable. A shy guy with a huge heart!
I was in such a confused and painful state and he managed to keep it up
for me and we talked about everything. He was the reason to get hooked
online again, the reason to be happy to open my folder. Even when I went
back to Greece for the holidays, we kept on and on.... I knew at that
time I was falling in love with a guy I never saw in my life! It was
risky but wonderful! He promised that the new millennium was going to be
different! Did he know?
When I came back, we decided to meet up in real life where else? In the
Clock Tower in Birmingham University! And we did: Wednesday 13 January
2000. It was exciting but we were so nervous. We hugged each other and
walked and walked and talked about things. I can never forger his smell;
he smelled gorgeous!
Then we were meeting almost everyday and were going to cinema, sharing
software and music cds. I was so happy. I can still remember our first
kiss by the Vale. I can still remember us getting physically close for
the first time! That was it. We were in love and inseparable for a
little more than a year now.
We went to places together, we had a great holiday in Greece and hope
for more to come. He now learns Greek and sounds so sexy, it is amazing!
