I know lots of ppl think that internet dating is a little risky and sad, but thats how i met my partner.
It was in September 2001, i had listed my personal profile on MSN and he found it. We emailed each other for about a month b4 deciding to meet.
Inititally he didnt meet my criteria, i was 18 and he was 25, i was looking for someone 23 or under. But i decided to meet him and see how it went.
We decided on the movies, i was living on the north side of Brisbane and hes was and hour away on the south side. As i didnt have my license at the time, my mum dropped me off.
I got there early and had to wait for him. I had no idea what he looked like, he tried to scan his license and email it to me but it didnt work. I had sent him a photo of me so he knew who to look for.
So i was sitting at the cinema and a guy walked round the corner wearing blue faded jeans and a gorgeous royal blue shirt. As he got closer i realised it was him, he walked straight up to me. He had the most stunning blue eyes i had ever seen, with dark brown hair ( i had always had a thing for blue eyes and dark hair), i then knew he was the one.
We saw The Fast and The Furious (we were both into cars so it was the obvious choice and now we have it on DVD as a momento lol). After the movie he then drove me home and we stayed up til the early hours of the morning. When he was leaving he used the corniest line i had ever heard "So can i have a kiss", obviously it work cos here we are today.
On my 20th birthday he took me out to dinner at Manly (i had moved to the south side with him), then afterwards to drove me up to Mt Coo-Tha and we stood in the gazebo thing up there and he asked me to marry him, i said yes of course.
We had planned to get married last year on our 4th anniversary, 7th October, but in March last year i found out i was pregnant with our beautiful DD.
We now live on the north side of Brisbane with our Daughter, our dog and my cat, and are planning to to try for baby number late next year. The wedding is on hold for now, but we will get there, when the kids are old enough to walk down the isle with me.
