Well Actually I Was In Love With Somebody I Had Never Met

i was 25 and he was 23...we met online in a chat room...it was a chat room about a music group that we both liked...i thought he was a girl (he didn't come in looking for cybersex--a rarity for males at the time) and i couldn't tell by his online name the sex of the person...

one night (the same night i found out he was a guy) we started talking...we shared everything--we bared our souls to each other and held nothing back...i could tell that he was very special...8 hours later the sun was coming up at my house and i had to go to work on that particular saturday--so we said goodbye...

i couldn't get him out of my mind and shortly after we were sending our first pictures to each other (using snail mail--neither of us had a scanner and i'm not sure what digital camera technology was like back then), we also made our first phone call--VERY expensive because i didn't have an international calling plan and i made the phone call...and our plans to meet for the first time...

we talked online every night and on the phone at least once a week...

2 months later i was driving my car 2000+ miles to meet him for the first time...

we had a lot of firsts during those two weeks...we continued daily online communication and increased the number and length of our phone calls...i went to his place for 3 weeks at christmas, and he came to my place for 1 week for spring break (he was in college at the time)...that was when he proposed...i went up to his place for a few months in the summer, during which time we got married--i planned a wedding from 2000 miles away and in less than 3 months time...

that was 1998 when we got married...we were so in love...so unaware of what the future would bring...

this summer we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary by going to miami...we're still in love and i wouldn't change a thing...

i NEVER would have approached him if we had met face to face first, but i'm so glad i met him--and very happy i met him online first...we were able to get to know each other inside and out before we even had any idea, really, what the other person looked like--i truly wouldn't want it any other way...
