This is a story about me (Patricia) and my boyfriend (Jon) who've I met online in a chat room almost a year ago.

I used to go into yahoo chat rooms on daily basis. I was suffering from depression and socia-phobia and I preferred staying at home and making friends instead of having to go out and face the world.

  Patricia & Jon at the Christmas party

I met Jon in one particular room that I always went to New York:1. Jon was not a regular there, but that day only he pmed me (instant message) and complimented me on my picture I had posted on my profile.

We hit it off nicely as friends only. He had just recently broken up with his ex-girlfriend who cheated on him and I was his shoulder to lean on that day as he was feeling down. As the months went by, Jon and I talked online quite often. He lives in Atlanta, and I live in New York. The day of the WTC attack, he went crazy trying to get a hold of me to make sure I was o.k. and we spoke for the first time that day on the phone. Weeks went by and I decided to meet this man I've been talking to for so long. Then I took a trip out to Atlanta to visit him.






Oh man ! that's when my life began - not knowing what love was until the day I met him. Spending a weekend with him was like a movie, more like a dream. It became the best weekend of my life. 

He always reassured me that I would be ok and he would take care of me, and not let anything happen to me if I was with him. Well, back then, those were only words, until he proved this all to be true to me. Never in my life have I felt so secure and loved and cared for.

We developed a strong relationship and a month later, he came down to New York to visit me and to accompany me to a Christmas party my job had. Once again, we had a wonderful time. This coming week, I'm flying out to Buffalo to meet his family and with God's will, I'm moving out there to Atlanta with him.

I've never been so sure about anything in my life before until now. I love him so dearly, he is the most important thing in my life, (other than my kids). I can truly and honestly say I have never felt love until now, I now know what love is and how wonderful it can be.

I have him as a soul-mate, best friend and lover, I couldn't ask for anything more from God. He has given me the happiness I never thought possible and I thank God everyday for giving me such a wonderful man who I hope to one day build a life with.

Whoever says that online relationships don't work out is wrong. I never believed in it either and I never intended to meet love online, but I'm so thankful and glad I did. God bless the day I met Jon and the day I logged online for the first time, even though I do believe that we were meant to be together and meet, so one way or another we would have met.

I love you Jon, you are the world to me, and I plan to make you as happy as you make me.
