Sarah and Greg:
After having received a new computer for Christmas I logged onto a Christian dating service. A friend of mine had dared me to, and since I can't say no to a dare...

It was the fourth of July in 2000 and I was just chatting in Yahoo! chat. Finally, I got an IM, so I started chatting.

  I talked to him for about an hour or so and then my mom came in and told me to go out and watch the fireworks. So I did! I was only out there for about 15-20 minutes and then came back in and got back online hoping that he was still online. Just my luck he was! So I clicked on his name and IM'd him.

We chatted to each other for another half hour to hour. Then I told him I had to go, but if he would give me his phone number I would call him when I got home on my cell phone (since I didn't have a calling card). I told him I had to go because I had to work at 8 in the morning, so he agreed. So I got offline and went home to call him. When I got home nobody else was there (I had an apartment with 2 friends). So I went to my bedroom, got into my pajamas and called Forrest.
 

 

 



 

   

 

 
 

When I got on the phone I would probably only talk for about half hour....well we ended up talking until midnight or later. Everyday after that I had to call him and most of the time I was talking to him for quite a while (2-3 hours). About 7 months later, I decided that I wanted to meet him so I went to visit him in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I was there for 2 weeks and we had the time of our life.

Granted, we didn't have any transportation, but we kept ourselves busy (if you know what I mean). I was having so much fun with him I didn't want to leave so I called work and made an excuse that I missed my bus and couldn't get on another one until the next day so I could stay there one more day. Then when I got home, I continued calling him whenever I could, and we decided that I was going to move there to live with him. Granted, he lived with his father, grandma, and grandpa, but I didn't care because I liked them all.

We have now been living together for a year and ten months, and we now have our own apartment, but we will be moving back to Massachusetts. Even though we would be living with his father and grandpa again, we will have the money to spend. Right now we don't, all our money goes to bills but we are making it ok.

Last Christmas, he proposed to me and gave me the ring on Christmas Eve. It's not a huge ring but that's alright because I don't like big rings. So we have been engaged for a year now and we are very happy. We plan on having a wedding somewhere in the near future. Of course, it will only be a small wedding, and by the justice of the peace since we don't have a lot of money.

He is the best man there is...I love him sooo much and nothing will ever change my feelings for him.
