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...

I have been trying to find a forum to tell about Danny and I (Michelle).

I was 17 when I had a devastating event in my life.


My best friend of 10 years decided that I was no longer an important person in her life and just left me flat as a board, leaving with my semi-boyfriend. I was so upset, I cried for at least a few days. Finally when I had gotten myself together, I decided to go online just to kill time. It was a Friday night and normally I would have been out with my best friend and guy, but since I no longer had that, I stayed home. I logged into a room and blatantly asked, "Is there anyone worth talking to in here?" 

Just like always, I had a few responses, all of which were the typical Male, 24, hot. That was not what I was looking for. However there was one that caught my eye. I can't explain why but he did.





  So we began to talk. He was from Utah and I am from California. After a few days of emailing back and forth, we decided to talk to each other on the phone. I was very wary so I got his number and called him from a local payphone. A few weeks went by and we talked everyday for hours on end. Finally we exchanged addresses and by this time I had fallen in love with the man I had never seen. Once I received a picture of him I was surprised. 

He wasn't the handsome man of my dreams that I had always thought about, but I was so in love with the person, it didn't matter. Danny was his name. Being as hurt as I had been by my best friends betrayal, I was very cautious, and it was not easy letting him into my heart, but he won his way when he sent me from Utah a dozen red roses with a card that read, "Roses for my angel" and I still have that card. Finally after about two and a half months, my parents drove me down to Sacramento to pick him up from the Airport. They had agreed to let him stay the 4th of July weekend with us in our home.

Looking back it was a great risk, but so was it for him coming out from Utah to stay at a home with people he had never met. 

The second I saw him come off the plane I knew he was the one. It was during that visit that he asked me to marry him. Being only 17 and 19 I said lets wait, yes, but lets wait. We didn't tell my parents about it obviously but it was our little secret. After that visit, he drove out about two weeks later. and about 3 weeks after that, Danny packed up all his stuff from Utah and moved out to California to be with me. That was three years ago. He left school for a year to gain residency and now is back and enrolled at the local college. He is my soul mate and we went through with the promise to marry each other, and we got married here in Chico California on August 5, 2000. I love him with all of my heart and the chances of meeting him that night were a billion to one, but when things are meant to be love can find a way.

Thank you for allowing me to share my story with you. I feel that the good in these relationships should be allowed a voice too. It is the pen pal of the future. thank you again.
