I am married to the man of my dreams. We met through a friend through a Harry Potter chat room when we were 13 and 14. We were best friends and spent most time online together. We had our own separate lives, and we were all going through our separate dramas, but we still managed to keep in touch and I still cared a lot about him. I loved him from the very beginning - he always saw me as just a friend. Until one day - when I was 17 he instant messaged me and we started talking on a regular basis again. I guess life had spared us both some drama and we were able to reconnect. Our relationship developed from there. We began talking on the phone every day. Eventually our feelings were obvious and we decided to become an exclusive item. He lived in Georgia, I lived in California. He was in college and I was still just a senior in high school. We lived over 2,000 miles away.
We called each other every night. We shared in our day to day struggles and joys. We gave each other internet hugs and sent pictures of one another (and sometimes video), just to be able to connect a little bit more. I remember sending him a video giving him a tour of my home in california. He sent me a video of him playing with a lighter. Random little things. I would send hand written letters.
10 months into our relationship he was beginning his second year of college and I got into a university 7 hours away from him. I visited him in the middle of the semester. It was the first time I'd ever ridden a public bus. I took a Greyhound from Savannah, through Macon, to Atlanta just to see this boy. I spent the whole weekend sick! His mom wasn't too happy - she didn't understand why I spent the whole weekend in his room. In fact... I had to twist the truth just to get my parents to allow me to go to this far away school to be with this unknown boy... to this day I still think our parents don't know how we ACTUALLY met. I don't feel too bad since my father is engaged to some one he met on eharmony and my husband's parents met through the internet as well.
We saw each other twice that semester... I wanted out of my school for several reasons. I tried applying to my (then) boyfriend's college. They rejected me so I had to spend the next 10 months (again) in California... over 2000 miles away. Fortunately, he was able to visit me during Christmas of that year, and that spring I managed to be able to fly out to see him as well. I finished off a semester of college in California with my schedule specifically designed to be able to get into his school. I was accepted, but had to wait another summer to see him. Three months later I was moving into an on campus apartment. At that point, we had actually been together for nearly two years, but had only actually been in one another's presence for nearly two months. From then on we spent most days together. Three years later, we got married. We are VERY happy together. We've been through alot, and I think the distance has only made us stronger0
