I was on MySpace looking for a friend of mine. I typed in his name and a bunch of people with the same name came up…of course. The picture on his MySpace looked a lot like it could possibly be my friend so I messaged him. Later that evening I received an email from him letting me know that he wasn’t the guy I was looking for. I replied back with an apology. So he messaged back asking me questions about myself and thought I was beautiful. So we wrote back and forth for a few days then we decided to exchange numbers. After 4 long months of texting and hours of talking on the phone we decided to meet. He came over to my place to watch a movie. Things went perfect! He was so respectful! We were sitting close and as I looked over at him to make a silly face… he leaned in to kissed me… we couldn’t stop. He held me so tight… I could feel his heart beat. I pulled myself away because I knew he was leaving for a few months and I didn’t want to get hurt.
I met another man while he was gone and I messed up. Married him 1.5 days after we met. Not the smartest thing. Even though I was married, the name I met on MySpace kept in touch as friends… emailing or texting secretly. Just to see if all was well. We always had this amazing connection and no matter if I deleted him off my MySpace or changed my number… some how we always found each other. My husband and I split and the moment he heard that we both wanted back into each other lives. 3.5 yrs later we remain great friends.
Just a few days ago I got a text from him saying “The stars are finally on our side baby!” I can honestly say I stopped breathing for a minute and had to reread the text 100 times. I knew I loved him when I read it for the 100th time and I felt the same as I did reading it the 1st time. I went to see him that night . . . things changed for us. We still aren’t ready… but things are amazing how they are! It’s been the best 3.5 yrs of my life getting to know this man! If this is what True Love feels like… im the luckiest girl in the world!
Postscript: We’ve never made love… but when we do… it will be amazing!

It was love when he showed up at my door after two years together, an emotional breakup, and four months living 300 miles apart and said, “I don’t care about the distance. I just want to be with you.”
Postscript: We’re back together and doing our best to maintain a long distance relationship. It’s working well so far and I’m confident that someday we will be able to live happily together.

I went to my grandmother’s funeral and did not get a call or text from my boyfriend the whole week I was gone. I did get a text from my cute coworker, who snuck into the store computer where we both worked to find my phone number. The day after I came home, my boyfriend yelled at me for not calling him and I dumped him. I spent the afternoon tickling my coworker while watching one of my favorite Woody Allen films which, to my surprise, he enjoyed.
Postscript: We have only been together one year, but I know I will love him forever.

We had been friends for a decade; he was my crush when I was younger. We meant again when I started attending a college near his house. We started dating and one week later he got into trouble with the law. Expecting me to be upset and yell at him, he said that he was lucky to have me and that he might even love me—all via txt. I instantly knew I could never live with out him.
Postscript: Valentine’s Day is our 9 month anniversary and I have never been happier. We have tough spots but we know No Matter What that we will make it. I can’t wait to spend my life with him.

We were friends since elementary school, but I was always dating someone else. One day we were doing homework together at his house. I was looking through his iTunes when I realized that our playlists were nearly identical, down to a few really obscure songs.
Postscript: We started dating a year later, got married three years after that and have been together for five years.

When I took her photo she flipped me the bird. I knew then and there she was the one for me.
Postscript: Two years later we are still adorable. She is moving to San Francisco next week.

I just came out of boot camp. He and I hung out with numerous coworkers (all guys), til one day he asked me out, just him and I. He said he couldn’t handle letting the other douche bag guys use me cause he wanted me to himself and for me to not get used or hurt. I knew he was different from any man after that point.
Postscript: We’re still together. I just moved in with him and we’re getting married June 19, 2010!
