I was very happy to finally read something
that is encouraging about "online relationships" because most articles
and websites condemn them and say that they aren't real or they only
work out for 1 out of 1,000,0000,000 people.
I hope things turn out as well for me as
they did for Ryan & Jamie.
I was drawn to the story when you said on the main page that they were
the youngest to meet online and get married. I'm pretty young, 15 to be
exact, but somehow God blessed me enough to allow me to find Cameron.
Many things happened that made me believe we are meant to be.
It's almost like a puzzle, things
worked out just right and just in time for us. I first got AOL back in
January of this year. I was pretty bored so that first week I decided to
go chatroom surfing.
I met a girl named Chelsea in a chatroom
I went into and she was the first person I ever talked to online that I
didn't know personally. She was in college and we kept in touch and
talked and shared things with one another, almost like best friends. In
October she told me she was going home from college to see her family
and it was then that I learned she had a 15 year old brother named
Cameron. She knew a lot about me and she told me that she wanted to
introduce me to him because we had a lot in common. I had a boyfriend at
the time, but I agreed to meet Cameron online as friends.
We talked for a very long time that night
and before I left he asked me if I had a boyfriend, when i said yes, he
made it clear that he was very disappointed. Then, we sorta said goodbye
and promised we'd talk later. That night, I could hardly sleep. I stayed
in bed, staring up at my ceiling and thinking about how special this guy
was. I even found myself wishing that I didn't have a boyfriend because
I really wanted to be with him. Then, I convinced myself that I was just
being unrealistic and that I should just try to overlook the feelings
that were there. The next morning, I found out that my
boyfriend had been cheating on me and we broke up. Coincidence?? I
wonder...almost as coincidental as Cameron's sister being the first
person I ever met online. While I was at school, I emailed Chelsea and I
told her how I felt about Cameron and I begged her to help me. That
night, she got him online for me, and we talked and told each other how
He had felt the same way. We decided to
get to know each other better before deciding to become boyfriend and
girlfriend, but on October 16th, we started going out. Every chance we
had, we were online talking to each other. One night, I was thinking
about how much this one person had changed my life and made me happy. He
turned everything around and made my life worth something. I had fallen
in love, and i couldn't keep it to myself any longer. Taking a deep
breath, I told him that I was in love with him...and at first he was a
little shocked, but the feelings were so strong between us that he felt
that way too. We began seeing our futures together.
There's only one problem, I live in North
Carolina and he lives in California. We've been talking about possibly
going to college near each other; Berkeley in California to be exact,
but i guess we'll have to see how things turn out. We just recently told
our parents about each other, and they are trying to be supportive even
though they are a little worried about us being so young. Right now, we
are in the process of meeting each other's parents. I really don't know
what I would be like if I didn't have Cameron, and I can't see my future
without him there.
I'm sure many people think that 15 is way too young, and that we're
immature or just going through a "phase," but if you could feel the way
I feel in my heart right now, you'd know it is more real than anything
else in this whole world. We are very anxious to be with each other and
we know that we will be. Pray for us, that we'll be able to be together
soon, and remember, just as i found out: Love will find you...even when
you least expect it. It's destiny.
