He was extremely
open and told me that he was 18 and starting to go to college. He sent
me his picture, and I didn't think it was anything special and I told
him he wasn't really my type, but that I was sure he would find someone.
We were just friends, and we talked constantly about physics, my other
One day we started talking about dating. He had never dated, so I was
picking on him.
He was talking about the snow, and I had never seen snow, so Kevin said
if I was up
there (in Washington, I was in California), he would like to have a
with me. I thought that was cute, so I kept egging him on and asking
what else he
would do. Kevin said we would probably wrestle in the snow, and then he
me down and kiss me! Well, that took my breath away and before you knew
were hopeless filrts online.
I decided to give him my phone number, it was Friday night. He had the
sexiest voice I could imagine. We talked all night about everything
under the sun. I
found myself calling him all the time, divulging secrets and sharing
passions. On Tuesday, I did the unthinkable, I told him I loved him. I
didn't expect him to say it back, it just felt natural to say it at that
point. I already felt so close to him. Kevin said it back. My heart
soared, and I was head over heels in love with a guy on the Internet!
On Valentine's day I received a dozen long stemmed red roses from Kevin.
It had cost him $70, and I was impressed. He's very shy and he had to
use his parent's credit card, and so eventually they found out about us.
I talked with them over the phone, and I really liked them. Kevin and I
desperately wanted to meet, especially after I sent pictures of me to
him. He said, "Wow. You're smart and beautiful, I have to meet you." All
my friends thought I was nuts, they were convinced he was an axe
murderer or something awful. Kevin talked it over with his parents, and
six months later I was on a train from California to Washington to
see the man of my dreams for an entire week!
I tried to get off the train as gracefully as I could with 80 pounds of
like what I thought to be a "bombshell." I saw him right away. He looked
just like his
picture. He had thick dark blonde hair, medium height, medium build.
Right away I
thought his nose was too big, and I kept thinking, what's wrong with me?
So I stared
into his beautiful blue eyes and avoided looking at his nose. I met his
but I don't even remember what she looked like because I was so damn
just gave Kevin a big hug and told him to talk to me because all I had
was his voice. He was so damn calm, it made me even more nervous.
We got into his car for the two hour trip back to Yakima, and right away
into a parking lot because he said he was lost. I was so nervous. He
kept looking at me in that way, and I knew he was going to kiss me. I
kept saying I needed some water or some hot chocolate or something, and
could we please go sit down somewhere at eat? Kevin got closer and
closer, and before I knew it he was kissing me and my entire world was
turned upside down. I now love his nose.
I spent a fantastic week with Kevin in Seattle and Yakima. Before I went
home, Kevin drew an infinity symbol on my hand and told me that we were
going to be together forever, and that he would wait through college for
us to be together. I tried to be strong on the train home, and I only
cried once. I got back home and felt so empty. I had just gotten
accepted to the school of my dreams, all my friends were in California,
but it wasn't enough. I decided I can always go to school, but I could
only find true love once. Life is like a movie, and I thought, what
would the heroine do? Would she give up the man of her dreams, or would
she get back on that train and head off to Washington where she only
knew one person?
I left everything and moved up to Washington for two years. There were
and stressful times, but Kevin and I loved each other as strongly as we
had when we
first met. We have since moved back down to California for the sunshine
I missed my friends. Now I have everything and I am so glad I took a
chance on true love.
