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...
She's From: Canada He's From: United States
My name is Chanie and his is Luke. We met
in the divorce chat room on Nov 11/9.
Luke was 32 and I was 33. I lived in Ontario
Canada and he lived in Kentucky, US.
We hit it right off the bat which was great
because I was getting tired of stupid talk. We talked every night for
hours and became very close.
So we decided to meet, he lived about 13
hours from me, Luke came here on Dec 26/97, it was scary, exciting and
ended up great. Yes my family and friends thought I was crazy for doing
this , but some thing told me that he was for real. I'm now glad I went
with my instincts. We were both divorced for some years so that was
good. We both went through the same ordeal in the divorce so we could
relate to starting a new romance and having our doubts.
Luke stayed for 4 days, I couldn't
believe he was the same wonderful man I had chatted to for all thought
nights it was great. I was shining, and other people noticed and
commented. I was on top of the world. When he had to leave I wanted to
cry, later he told me that he wanted to tell me that he loved me but
scared I would think he was crazy. Little did he know that I wanted to
tell him to that I fell in love with him.
The night he got back home he called, it
was then that he told me he loved me, my heart burst with joy and I told
him how I felt. So as the days went on we both felt we couldn't be apart
and decided to tie the knot. The date was set for Jan 29/98. He was
giving up everything to come and marry me and live here. I thought that
had to be the most wonderful thing a person could do. Coming to a
different country to live , I know that I would have not taking that
step, I was scared, but he proved to me that he loved me deeply by doing
After we settled in to home life and got
to really know each other, we went back to visit his family, they were
wonderful and the place was breath taking, I loved it. We decided to
move back to the US to live, I do miss my family and friends but, Luke
is my whole life now and I love him dearly.
