    So I had just gotten out of a long (bad for the last many years) relationship with the guy I had dated since high school and decided to try online dating. I had never really dated and a friend of mine encouraged me to try match.com because she met her husband on there. So after a night out I signed myself up (made me very honest) lol. I had a 50 mile radius on my account but Andrew managed to find me, thank God( I had had some descent and weird dates prior to him finding me). He had signed up for a trial and didn't change his search radius so it was set to 500 miles and I turned up in his search. I grew up in Michigan and Andrew was in Kentucky. He messaged me on match and I thought he was super handsome with so many similarities to me. I was disappointed he was so far away but figured there was no harm in messaging back and forth. He teases me now because he says it would take me days to respond to his messages. Eventually I suggested texting and after that we started talking on the phone. Our first conversation lasted 5 hours. We finally decided to meet half way (in Ohio) for a day. Before actually meeting I had a feeling he was the one and when I saw him I knew it. We ate at Texas road house then tried to search for a park. We were in Lima, OH and hadn't known what to expect(the parks are few and far between). Eventually we found a park a half hour south and just walked/talked while holding hands. We ended our night with dessert at Applebee's and went our separate ways. I even told one of my best friends on my drive home that night that he was the one. It was already planned that in two weeks he would come to michigan for a long weekend (he took vacation) but I decided I didn't want to wait and went to Kentucky the next weekend. After that we saw each other every weekend I had off. Being a nurse I work weekends and at the time I worked every other weekend. Now 2 1/2 years later, after many drives between michigan and Kentucky, I made the big move to Kentucky to be with Andrew. I've been here 2 months now and love living with the love of my life....just miss my family and previous job. My families only about 5 hours away though so once the snow is over trips up to michigan and for them to come here will be easier. Hope you enjoyed our story!! We talk about marriage and kids so I'm hoping thats not too far off but either way were happy and love having time together. For now we have my (our) kitty Dublin and are practicing having children by having Hulk hahaha

    I absolutely loved reading all of these stories! They are amazing, thanks everyone for sharing. Now my turn, but mine isn't so exciting.

    I'm sure some of you may have heard of Second-life. If your real life sucks, have a second-life online on a virtual world where for a couple dollars you can even get "married." At this point I was not happy with the way my life was going, at all. I had been stupid and not once but twice "fallen in love" and thought I would be married to these "wonderful" men. My first boyfriend was 18, I was 17 and one night we were sitting up in my room drinking (We had, had an older friend sneak some booze in.) We were totally hammered and he tried to get me to do the dirty with him, to which I had said no, I'm waiting for marriage before I do that. To make a long story straight the ****** raped me. I ended up pregnant with my daughter and around the time she was born I started dating another guy. I had never told anyone what happened that night until a few months after I started dating this guy. I told him what happened and he wanted to kill my ex, he wanted to know who he was so he could go beat the ever living hell out of him but I wouldn't let him know. We had been dating for a few months when he proposed to me, I said yes. A week later I found out I was pregnant again. (Yea, I made some poor judgment when I was younger.) I told him and he left. I was floored.

    Fast forward 5 years, I'm a single mom, living with my parents until I could find a good job and get out on my own. I had dated a few guys since then but it never worked out. The problem was, I was a heavyset girl, young and dumb with my heart set on someone thin and muscular. I found out after a while all these guys wanted was sex. Seriously, that's it and if I wouldn't give them what I wanted then they left and I'd never hear from them again. So I started playing around on Second-life. I made a lot of friends and enjoyed escaping to my second life, a world where people cared about me. I had been friends with my husband for about a year but never knew he was in the army or really much of anything about his real life but we got along great and he was one of the people I hung out with a lot but in the real world I was depressed, unstable and "sitting on the edge of a cliff just waiting for someone to give me a good shove." I was thinking about suicide more and more and more. I started telling hubby about things going on in the real world and of course he was very concerned. We got to talking more and more and a couple weeks later he proposed to me. I said sure, thinking he meant on the game, so I said when are we doing this? His response? "How about a couple months from now, I'll be on leave and can come up then." We never dated and he never even hinted at liking me. I'd never even seen a picture of him before. I was floored once more. I told him to give me a day to think it over and the next day I came in with a different outlook and started throwing a LOT of questions at him. "Where do you work?" "What's your name?" "Can someone confirm who you are?" " Can I have a picture" and the biggest question of all. "Why?" After all questions were answered, I had a picture, had talked to his mother and his SGT I was feeling a bit more comfortable with the situation and began to get a bit excited. June was quickly approaching and I figured what the hell, if we don't like each other then we won't get married and he'll go back to his life, plain and simple.

    Of course everyone thought I was insane and sometimes I questioned it myself. I didn't know jack **** about my husband other then the fact he was in the army and he was a bit geeky looking, probably because my husband is a mega geek lol. Definitely not my type but hey, I was willing to give anything a chance if I could continue being as happy as I was at that moment. Sure there were worries in the back of my mind but I tried my hardest to brush those worries out of my mind. Keep in mind when I was about 16, I lost a family member in the army and vowed I would NEVER ever date or marry someone in a "dangerous" job. Fire fighter, emt's, military or police force. Well we met in June and really clicked, we enjoyed being together and a week wasn't long enough. We had a small wedding at the courthouse with a few family members and friends and we've been happily married since then. We had our first anniversary last June, 2 days before he deployed. It was bittersweet and I had a very hard time saying goodbye to him. He had made me so happy and being apart from him made me feel crushed, especially so soon but I've dealt with the ups and downs and I don't regret a thing. He is an amazing husband and wonderful father to my children. I've had a lot of bad times in my life and he has helped me heal. For that, I thank him.
