First, I want to start by saying that I met my fiance on IS. I was skeptical at first because I thought this would be like every other dating site on the web. But I was shocked and amazed when I became a member. This was the first site I actaully paid for and it was worth every penny.
I was also in disbelief when the man of my dreams sent me a smile and his profile. I thought it was too good to be true and almost missed my opportunity. But I thought I would give it a chance and see where things went, it couldn't hurt. We started by talking on Yahoo but realized that wasn't enough for us. So we exchanged numbers and that was the start of something wonderful I never expected to find.
As soon as I heard his voice on the other end of the line I knew this man was the one for me. We talked about everything and and the conversations were deep and endless. We began talking more often and that went to every other day. At that time he was bowling 4 nights a week for a league and I knew from the beginning that that was something he was passionate about and that was a big part of his life.
One night he called me on his way to the bowling alley just to say hi and we ended up talking for hours. He missed his game because he didn't want to let me go. I knew that moment that I couldn't let this one get away; that he was genuine and cared about me the way he said he did.
That trend continued and again we started talking more frequently. There were countless nights when we would stay up all night like high school kids talking on the phone. Even the silence pauses are a way of communication for us. There have also been nights when we both fall asleep on the phone together.
When we finally decided to meet in person the plans were for me to go to St. Louis to see him. My best friend and I were going to drive there; however, fate had something else planned. We had car problems and weren't able to make the trip. So the night we were suppose to leave, Greg calls me and says "I need you to pick me up at the airport at 8pm tomorrow night. I bought a ticket and I am flying to see you". I was completely shocked. This man had never been on an airplane in his life but he was willing to fly 650 miles for me.
I must admit it was an interesting experience. The emotional rollercoaster was enough to make anyone turn and run the opposite direction. Excitement because I finally got to see this man I had been talking to for months face to face. But nervousness because of the doubts running through my mind.
All fears were erased when he arrived at the airport. I knew as soon as our eyes met this was the man I would spend the rest of my life with. We had an amazing weekend together getting to know each other even more. But all good things must come to an end and he had to get back on the plane and fly back to St. Louis. That was a hard thing for me watching him walk through the airport and away from me.
The next week was particularly hard on both of us because now we knew what we were missing when we were apart. Again I made plans to go to St Louis the next weekend to see him and that fell through once again. But this time no 'meet me at the airport'. It was going to be a lonely week-end on the phone again. Friday night I got off work and was ready for one of our all-nighters on the phone. But he was spending the evening with his friends. So I went to sleep.
The next morning I was in for a surprise. At 6am my phone rang and it was him. I imediately thought something was wrong so he starts talking to me like nothing so I knew he was ok. Then he told me that it had snowed in St Louis and wanted me to look outside and see if it had snowed here. So I get out of bed and go to my front door and he was standing on my porch. He had driven all through the night to get to me. I was in amazement. Apparently there was more to this relationship than I initally thought.
This man makes me whole and he showed me that I can be loved for who I am not what I have, not what I look like, and that he would do anything in the world for me.
And he knows that I would do the same for him.
We are now in the process of planning our wedding and the date is set for June 7th, 2008. I want to end this story by thanking IS for helping me find my true love and my soul mate. Without this site, I think it would have been completely impossible.
