I spoke with Kevin on many occasions by phone because our companies worked together. This went on for months and I never had the opportunity to meet him.
Approximately six months later we met. He was very nice, but seemed too young for me. I later found out he was actually older than me. I was already in a serious relationship anyway. This was in 1987 and this work relationship remained the same for about three years.
In 1990, my relationship ended with the other guy and Kevin and I went out for a drink as friends. It did not go further than that and neither of us seemed interested at the time. For the next few months, we only spoke on the phone.
I started thinking about that maybe a nice guy was the way to go since I was never attracted to nice guys before. He asked me to a party and we began dating seriously for the next year. I fell madly in love with him. He told me he fell in love with me from the first moment he heard my voice on the phone. We got engaged after a year and married in 1992.
In 1994, we welcomed our beautiful daughter and the rest is history. We are very happy all of these years later and I believe there really is such a thing as true love.
