He's From: United States
Well, in August of 98 I had just broken
up with someone I dated for 6 months.
He was my first real boyfriend and I guess I
was living in a fantasy world, thinking that no couples ever had
problems and that some people weren't meant to be together.
and Jason at Krista's
Senior Prom in Tennessee
Well, he just broke up with me out of the
blue and I was crushed. I started talking in the chat room Alabama Live.
My now boyfriend Jason was majoring in Computer Science and had just got
a computer. We met in the Alabama Live chat-room in November during
Thanksgiving weekend. He sent me a bible verse and it was Romans 8:28
"For all things work together for good to them that love God who are the
called according to his purpose."
For some reason out of all the people that tried to help me and comfort
me, he was special. I got to where I would go in the chat room hoping to
see Jason19 in there. Finally we exchanged e-mail addresses and started
e-mailing. Well, I got some phone cards for Christmas so I decided to
give him a call. We talked for 2 hours and found out we had so much in
common. I really really liked him. I asked him if we could ever be more
than friends, and he said...." I don't know...we'll see." Well, the next
day he called me and we talked till New Year's. On New Year's Eve at
12:00 he called and told me that he loved me. So then we made plans to
meet. He came and met me at Shoney's for breakfast. As soon as we saw
each other, we ran to each other,and hugged. It was like we had known
each other forever. Our first day was awesome. We both cried when he had
to leave that night, but he promised me that he would come back.
He came to see me every other weekend. He lives three hours away from
me. He lives close to Tuscaloosa Alabama and I live near Ft. Payne
Alabama. Anyway, we dated for 2 and a half months and then I made the
most terrible mistake. I broke up with him. It was my senior year, and
getting ready for graduation had me stressed and I realized I was
falling deeply in love and I had realized that he was "the one." but I
was afraid of being hurt. Well, we talked every day even after we broke
up for five months. I dated two other guys but I wouldn't get serious
with them. One guy lied to me and the other guy said he didn't want a
relationship. Jason dated three or four other girls but he said that he
didn't feel anything, that he still wanted to be with me. August of 99 I
was going to turn 18 and Will, one of the guys I dated had just broken
up with me, so Jason told me that he would come and take me out for my
birthday as friends...Yeah right.... When he got up here, I realized how
much I loved him, how much I had missed him and I knew I wanted him
back....but I hesitated to ask him to go back with me, because I didn't
know if he could ever forgive me for hurting him the first time.
Well, two weeks later, pride aside, I asked him and he said Yes, and we
have been together almost 8 months now. I am happier than ever. He gave
me a promise ring and told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his
life with me. I happily agreed. We aren't really engaged because I have
to finish college first before we get married and I have about two years
left if I go in the Summers and I don't want a long engagement, but we
have planned to get married in the Summer of 2002, or December
2002,depending on when I graduate. He is my soul-mate, and I realize I
made a stupid mistake, but now I don't ever have to wonder if I could be
happy with someone else, because the whole time I dated other guys he
stayed on my mind and in my heart. I even slipped and told him I loved
him one time while I was dating Will. That's when I knew I truly loved
him. Well I gotta go, because he is coming to spend Easter weekend with
me. He will be here in just two and a half more hours.
To all the people that doubt internet love,
let me tell you it can happen. We both know that God brought us together
and Jason told me that when we broke up if it was meant to be all paths
would lead back to each other. Our paths may have taken detours, but the
roads converged and our paths led to each other's hearts. I love him
with all my heart and can't wait to start a life with him.
Thanks for reading my story.
