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...

I am involved with a wonderful guy I met on ICQ. Although we haven't met yet, we are madly in love and planning to meet in a few months.

One night I was searching for a chat friend on ICQ through a random search.

     
 

I was looking for someone in Canada as that is where I live. I found a guy that went by the name of IB6UB9. His name kind of made me chuckle so I had to check out his profile. 

He was interested in motorcycles, parties, sports, and or course women...lol. My first impression was that he was some kind of biker. I was hesitant to message him though he did intrigue me somewhat. But I decided not to message him in the end.

 

 



   

 

 
       
 

Well, I was talking to some other guy and some how I accidently ended up sending IB6UB9 a message. As soon as I realized my mistake, I almost died. As it turned out, he eventually replied that he was busy at the moment and would get back to in a few minutes. But he did ask if he could he could put me on his friends list. I agreed and added him also. A few minutes passed and I never heard back from him.

A few nights later I was on ICQ and so was he. I decided to wait for him to send a message this time. He did and apologized for not getting back to me. We chatted that night for a couple of hours....laughing the whole time. We both really enjoyed our conversation. We seemed to have a lot in common.

I eventually lost the "biker" impression I had of him as I learned more about him and his friends and family. I'm not sure who first spoke the words, but we both are truly in love. Neither one of us were looking for "love" online and we are both amazed that it has happened. His friends and family don't seem to understand how he feels. Because of my job, I do have people I can talk to that understand that online love does exist.

Because of my job, I am unable to travel to meet him. He lives 3500 miles away....near my home town (which is amazing too). I have two children, which has ruled out the possibility of him coming here. We have discussed this at length...we have to wait until I can get time off. I have arranged to take 5 weeks off work in 6 months and plan to visit him for 3 weeks. 

We usually talk 5 - 6 times a week for about 3 hours. We chat online or on the telephone. We have sent cards and gifts. People ask me what we find to talk about for so long. Its difficult to answer because it's more than just talking...its the only way we have right now to be together. 

We have discussed the future and the possibility of my moving out there. I am able to get a transfer with my job and I have family out there also, so we thought it would be better for me to make the move. He also can't wait to do things with my kids. He loves children but has never had any of his own. He is such a wonderful guy. It must have been fate when I accidently sent him a message...lol.

I am realistic enough to know that things may not work out once we have finally met, but the last 3 months have been great. I was planning a trip out that way to visit my sister anyway. If the most I get from this is a great new friend....then I consider myself lucky.

I will keep you posted.
