We have found we are so compatible in so
many ways and now wonder if fate drew us together.
We started our life living together on 1 September 2000 - became engaged
on 19 October 2001 and were married on 25 October 2002.
We have grown closer and even more inseparable then either of us thought
possible as time has passed and have both vowed we will never be apart
as long as there is breath in our bodies. We have both found our soul
mates - a true love with happiness neither of us have known before.
To our happiness we owe Mplayer. The message is that love can happen on
the Internet, if you are willing to take it slow, and take the trouble
to get to know the person you are talking to.
Yes, it seems strange to us that we found the best love each of us has
ever known on the Internet - but it has happened and we are now looking
forward to many years together.
Below is a poem Lynne stumbled across on the Internet. We don't know who
wrote it, but it is so very true.....
"Even though we are miles apart...
A computer screen connects our hearts.
It's very strange, when suddenly, your heart will realize,
It has been taken by someone with words before your eyes.
It is so strange to fall in love while staring at a screen,
With someone who is miles away that you have never seen.
You read about it in the news and see it on TV.
About an online love affair as real as it could be.
A couple fell in love online and one day finally meet.
The love was real for both of them and now they are complete.
You think this couldn't happen because it is all a game.
The people that you read about already were insane.
To meet a perfect stranger may be asking way too much,
The people who set up these dates have gone completely nuts.
You don't know...who you're talking to, and can they be sincere?
And if you've never seen someone, how can they really care?
So then you play your silly games, while trying to have fun.
And if someone seems serious, you click your mouse and run.
Nobody can convince you that relationships can brew.
It's just a game that people play, because it's something new.
You talk to people everywhere, as if the world is right. Then,
when you're tired of talking, you just click them off at night.
But, one day you will meet someone, as strange as it may seem.
And they will make you feel as though you're living in a dream.
You will feel emotions, that until now were undisturbed.
And as they type upon your screen, you'll hang on every word.
You'll not understand it, how this person makes you feel,
But, emotions that you're feeling suddenly are real.
You will feel emotions and you'll think that it's insane.
How could words upon a screen cause happiness and pain?
When you realize the words are from a person's heart,
Then you understand, within your life, they have a part.
Relationships online is something you think you're above,
But, deep within your heart, you know you're falling deep in love.
Love is love, no matter what the world will try to say.
What difference does it matter, how the love has come your way?
True love...is so precious, and it is so rare to find.
How can you doubt some people find true love when they're online?
It may be hard to understand how you can love someone,
When all you wanted was to go online to have some fun.
You may think relationships online may not be smart.
But, I have met some people that I love with all my heart!!"
Lynne I never believed I could give my heart and soul so completely to
another. I never thought I could ever feel such love, warmth, and
happiness. And feel so content and unafraid with a love as intense and
strong as ours. And yet my love still grows stronger for you each day.
Lynne, you are my world, my life and all that I need in this life. You
have shown me what true love is and shown unselfish loving, with a
passion I have never before experienced in my life.
Lynne I love you so very much. Thank God that we were shown the way to
each others heart.
We spent a great week in Greece in May
2001, our first holiday of many and it was so
romantic. We had another romantic holiday in Lanzarote in March 2002.
Our wedding took place at ...
Pontypridd Registrar Office, South Wales ...
on Friday, 25 October 2002.
Lynne's daughter, Kim made it a memorable occasion by singing
'Everything I do' at
Our honeymoon was in Tenerife in the
Canary Islands and what a beautiful week it was.
Hot sunshine and a lot of laughs. Kim went with us and we never stopped
laughing from the moment the plane touched the ground.
