In September 1998, I received an email from a member. I had been a member on your service for some time. I read his short note and looked at his cute picture... and somehow knew...
We met two weeks later for dinner. He lived 350 miles from me, so this was not an easy accomplishment. He walked up to my front door with roses and cabernet under one arm and his little Shih Tzu under the other. One look at this sweet sensitive man with a smile from ear to ear and I knew he was a keeper.
The relationship blossomed in spite of the fact we were buying new tires every 3 months from the commute. Last July I moved into his beach house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We've been working diligently remodeling it. We're almost finished, and it's truly a romantic dream house. This wonderful man has changed my life. We love doing everything together and enjoy and appreciate each other everyday of our lives. We're both in our 50's, so we had a very good idea of what we wanted from a partner. Marriage is not in the cards for us (due to legalities); however, our life together is just as rich and fulfilling. Thank you for bringing me my knight at this time in my life.
