Nina: 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 got my computer in December of 1998.
At first I just used to it to search the web, play games, and just
I finally ventured into chat rooms, but just
observed as I did not have the nerve to chat or message anyone. Of
course with a internet name like mine, I received a bunch of personal
messages that asked some sexual questions and such, though I ignored
most. I finally got up the nerve to start chatting and before long I had
my own group of friends. I chatted with a few guys and even met some in
person that lived pretty close but they either turned out to be JERKS or
didn't pan out as anything as friends. I finally gave up on finding
something other than friendship until October 14th, 1999. He sent me a
private message of a friendly nature and I replied.
Before long we were chatting as if we had
known each other for a long time. We started talking on the phone and
the first time I heard his voice it went straight to my heart. I could tell him anything and he
would listen without judging. I have children from a previous marriage
and he always asked about them and discussed them with me. We ran up
some pretty astronomical phone bills! He lived in Nebraska and I lived
in Virginia. He flew to see me on March 2nd, 2000. The first time we
looked into each other's eyes, we knew. He stayed only three days, but
we made plans for me to go see him the next month. The day I watched his
plane leave, I cried until I didn't have a tear left.
I felt as if part of me was gone, and it was! He called me that night
and said he cried on the way home and knew that he didn't want to be
without me. He asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes. We started
discussing my moving there as there were not many job opportunities for
him where I lived. I didn't think twice. On April 12th, 2000, I flew to
Nebraska. He had already made plans for us to get married on April 13th.
Of course everyone thought we were crazy but we didn't care. We knew it
was right and that we would prove to everyone that we were meant to be
We were married at 1pm and had a two day honeymoon. I flew back to
Virginia and gave notice at my job and started packing. It was the
longest two months of my life. He flew back to Virginia on June 15th and
after spending a couple days with my family we drove to Nebraska. I came
here and got a job, and then went back to get my kids in July. I can
honestly say that it's been hard. I had never lived away from my family.
He has been my rock and listened to me cry from homesickness many
nights, but has always been supportive. He is everything I have ever
dreamed of and more. He is a wonderful stepfather to my children. They
adore him. I have found my soulmate through the internet and have not
regretted it one day. I see myself growing old with him. I tell him that
even though I am homesick, which is not as bad as before, I would still
do it all over again.
I can't imagine my life before him or without him. Somehow, I know that
God meant for us to be together and that it's forever.
