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:   Australia
He's From:     Australia

Well I guess there is no easy way to tell others about the way you fall in love with that one person that you want to share the rest of your life with.


Well it all started when I lost my job in August 2000. I was sad and depressed and I needed a loving shoulder to cry on. So the day I came home from work after being fired, I rang my best friend, Dave, and asked if he'd mind a house guest for a week!! (I live in Brisbane Australia). He said he didn't mind, and I thought GREAT!!! a way to get away from all this junk in Brisbane, and sort my life out, and believe me....i did!!!!. I travelled up to Townsville (about 21 hours north of Brisbane) and when I pulled into the transit centre in Townsville, my heart skipped a beat. I couldn't believe it....standing there was the man who had stolen my heart many times, but unfortunately for me, he had a girl that he'd been seeing, and things looked like they could be getting serious, and I knew things weren't to be like that.... boy, was I wrong... 






The entire week, we spent all day everyday together, and made love usually once a day!!! I was in heaven!!!!. But then the day came where it was time for me to leave....and boy oh boy, i'll tell you...i did NOT want to go....When Dave & I were at the transit centre waiting for my bus to board, we just stood there looking at each other. Neither of us knew what to say!! Finally, the boarding call for my bus was called, and I gave him a goodbye kiss before I got on the bus. I cried for about an hour, on the bus, after I left. I WAS DEVASTATED!!!! Here I was, leaving behind the one man that I felt made me feel like a human being again, but I got back to Brisbane, and by this time Dave had sent me an email telling me that he hoped that I didn't get the wrong idea or that he lead me on....and still to this day, I don't have the heart to tell him, that he did lead me on a little bit, and that no matter who I marry & fall in love with, there will always be a special place in my heart just for him

Well I suppose after that I was feeling rather vulnerable, and any men that tried to crack onto me or get me in the sack I told to shove off, because I didn't want to be hurt again. Too many times had I been hurt, and or nearly lost a man I thought that I was in love with and that's when I met the one man that was about to change all that.

It was around the middle of October that I met Kevin. He'd found my name on a random chat finder on ICQ, and apparently had tried to contact me on ICQ, but couldn't get thru, so he'd sent me an email saying that he would like it if he could be added to my contact list. I thought, "With a nickname like Mr_Mysterious, sounds interesting enough...", so I added him. Soon we were chatting away talking about small things, and then he said that he had to go to bed, as he'd been up all night at work (I was later to find out that he worked as a Information Tech Support Person at a call centre). How could he have been up all night when it was late evening where I was.???....I later found out that he was from the United Kingdom. Talk about long distance!!!

Anyway...i got back online about two hours later, and there he was.....waiting online for me. "haven't we met before *wink*" he said to me!!! Oh Wow.....least he's got a sense of humour!!!! We continued to chat for another three months (and by this time, well you could consider us to be online boyfriend & girlfriend. Well we were talking one night (he was thinking of coming out here to Australia for our first RL visit) and he turned around and asked me to marry him. I was literally knocked for a six!!! what the hell??? He told me that it was not official, HE WOULD ASK ME IN PERSON!!!! OMG....i couldn't believe it. We'd been together for only three months, and already he'd asked me. But that was only online. He is due to come over in less than a month. He is the most wonderful, witty charming man I have ever met. We've spoken on the telephone many a time, and even at odd hours of the morning over here (ie - 3am in the morning)

Despite what my family thinks, or even what my friends might think, I know that deep in my heart, Kevin is the one that I want to grow old with, the one that I want to have three beautiful children with, and the one I want to devote my life to. No other man has made me feel this whole EVER!!!
