They Knew It & Said It


They Knew It & Said It

Michael and I began talking over the phone shortly after we met on CM
in March of 2009.  We both found CM on the back of our church bulletin.
At that time, Michael was living in Arizona completing some military
training. I was living in Ohio, near the area where Mike grew up–we
are from the same area.  After talking on the phone for about two months,
Mike came home for his sister's wedding, which was on Memorial Day
weekend.  We went on our first face to face date that Thursday, and
Mike invited me to his sister's wedding on that Saturday night. Mike
and I hit it off from the first night we went out, and our relationship
grew closer and closer.  About a month after his visit home, I visited
him in Arizona, and we had a wonderful weekend. Mike pulled out all the
punches– roses, chocolates, wonderful dinners, lazy river, and even a
hot air balloon ride over the desert.  We were in love–we both knew
it, and we both said it.  It was hard to leave, but we said our
goodbyes after that weekend.  We contined our relationship by phone
and started to talk about the future.

Mike moved home in
August.  He surprised me by telling me that he decided to postpone a
school he had originally planned on leaving for another 4 months out of
state. He made this decision because of me, and what he saw in us.  We
really began our lives together from then.  I think we both knew we
were at our last stop.  In October 2010, in front of his parents,
Michael asked me to marry him, and I whole heartedly accepted.  We were
married on February 13, 2010, and celebrated with about 100 family and
friends. 

I don't think either of us ever thought we could meet
someone this complimentary to our personalities and lives.  We are so
much alike; we are best friends. We discuss often how crazy it is that
we found each other, and that there is no one we'd rather spend our
lives with.   We attribute our success greatly to the fact that we
spoke over the phone for months before meeting.  We were able to get to
know each other very well without any physical relationship, and without
life's distractions.  It has made for a beautiful journey, and we
couldn't be happier with our new married life and our future together!

    Reminiscent of the start of 46 years with my beloved. We became friends in letters and phone calls with only a couple long week-ends together, but we knew it was the real thing too. Congratulations on the wonderful beginning of friendship, love, and total sharing. God bless you and yours at this new beginning.

    Not sure I believe it. Maybe just trying to boost sales. I have tried this site. Then again I guess anything is possible.
