We spent a wonderful week together and from
then on, we both knew we are meant for each other.
Where we met was in a centurytel chat room
on March 2 this year. He is 30, and I am 29. that is what started us
talking, our closeness in age, and the fact that we each have 2 children
close in age. we then discovered that we had a lot in common. he was
recently divorced, and i was getting divorced.
We began discussing our failed marriages,
and our conversations grew. We discussed anything and everything,
beginning as friends. As our discussions grew, sometimes we talked for 8
hours or more, so did our love for one another. we first talked on the
phone the day we met, March 2.
He called me from work, just for a
minute. I don't remember exactly when we first told each other "I love
you" but it was before we met in person. I was shocked at first, to hear
him say that. I knew I loved him, we shared a bond I had never shared
It was like he always knew what I was
thinking. but he made it very clear from the beginning that he did not
want to get married again. He just wanted a friend to talk to. but I
think after months of talking for hours every day, I kinda got to him. I
was never opposed to an online romance, but I did not set out looking
for one. but after a couple of months, I knew I had found my perfect
match. I think it took him a little longer to realize it.
We exchanged pictures about a month after
we first met online. he looked to me like your typical southern
gentleman, very tall, and very handsome. he told me I was beautiful,
although the picture my sister sent him was less than flattering.
In April, I made reservations to fly to Louisiana, and I arrived at the
airport on June 7. He was there waiting for me, and from the moment I
stepped off the plane, it was like I had known him forever. We were so
comfortable together. Our week together was perfect. So perfect, in
fact, that I cried all the way home when I left.
During that one week, I fell in love with
him, and I knew I did not want to live without him. And when I talked to
him next, he said he felt the same way. My family and friends were all
apprehensive about me flying down there alone to meet him. I assured
them that I knew him well enough to go alone, and he is a police officer
also. They felt a little better about me going after he sent pictures.
My sister and brother-in-law had both talked to him on icq, and they
liked him. but I basically told all of my friends and family that it is
my life, and I was going to do what I wanted to.
Everyone just said they wanted me to be
happy. And now I have never been happier in my whole life. And soon, I
will be happier as we will be getting married in the semi-near future.
We each have 2 children, so we planned a get together in Tennessee for
the children to meet and get to know each other. My children absolutely
adore him. We are now making plans for my children and I to move to
Louisiana. He is everything I have ever wanted in a man. it has been so
nice to fall in love with someone because of who they are, not what they
look like, or what they have. We were friends before anything. he will
always be my best friend, as well as the love of my life. We are soul
mates, and it is the most wonderful feeling in the world.
Update - February 1999
I just wanted to update you on the latest
developments. I am moving to Louisiana at the beginning of February. My
cyberlove proposed to me on November 28, when he was here over
Thanksgiving. My family just loves him and how good he is with my
children. We have set the wedding date for March 27!
