We talked about everything and anything
that came up. In October of that year we were both having some
difficulties with our mates and families (not due to our friendship), we
talked and helped one another with many problems. Over the next few
months, our marriages had begun to get stale and life was what we had
with each other. I found myself looking forward to my husband, who
worked every night, all night, being gone. This man and I had exchanged
phone numbers and had talked for hours at a time to each other when
After the holidays, he had came online
one night and asked if it was ok for him to call me. Of course I could
tell that something was definitely wrong, so I told him yes. When I
answered the phone I knew that something was terribly wrong with him. He
then proceeded to tell me that he had moved out of his house and left
his wife. I think that at that moment I knew it was ok to tell him that
I truly loved him and would be there for him as much as I could. In the
meantime, my own marriage had fallen apart and I was at the end of the
line with it. My husband and I were best friends and we did talk about a
possible separation a few months before. I think we both knew that what
we had was gone.
In the months that followed, Chris (the
man online) and I had confessed our feelings and love for each other.
One afternoon I went online to check my email and there he was, waiting
for me. He told me that he had something that he wanted to tell me. He
said that he was purchasing a plane ticket to come to my province to
meet me. I
could not believe it when he told me this. My heart fluttered and at the
same time I was terrified at the thought. We made arrangements to meet
in another city as to avoid any problems. I traveled to the airport to
meet him and when he walked off the plane I knew that this was the man
of my dreams. We spent 4 wonderful days together. I will never forget
those, he spoiled me to no ends. Baths with candles and rose
petals, long walks and dinners out. We spent hours and hours talking and
cuddling. He treated me like a queen. I knew that our time had to come
to an end and after many tears and promises we parted at 6 am.
He never looked back as he walked to his
flight back but somehow I knew that I would hold him in my arms again.
After the trip back to my hometown, I went online right away, knowing
that he would be back in his city by then. He was right there waiting
for me when I got online. I told him that I missed him terribly and that
I needed to be with him again. I talked with my husband and we decided
that it was over. I wanted out and he set me free with no problem.
Exactly 30 days later I boarded the plane for Alberta and am still here
14 months later. I will never forget that first moment when I stepped
off the flight and Chris was right there waiting for me with open arms.
I think that what we have is so wonderful but it may not be for
Of course we have our problems but what
couple doesn't. I would not say it is perfect cause that would be a lie,
but I do not regret one single moment of the time we spent online
getting to know each other or the time we have together now. We live
each day to the fullest and we have experienced some great moments
together. It has now been over a year and we are still as happy as that
first day. I know that I truly love him and want to spend the rest of my
days with him. Chris if you ever read this, you will know that I am
thinking of you and yes, Sunshine, I am smiling!!
