During the spring of 2006, I met my soul mate on blackplanet.com. Being a single parent of 3 and trying to date can be very difficult, but meeting Kenneth changed all that. He immediately accepted me and my children. He was not put off by the fact that I was a single parent because he too was a parent.
Due to the fact that he was a military officer serving in Iraq, we where not able to actually meet in person until a few months after we started talking. When he finally got leave in July 2006, we met. I was so nervous, but I knew instantly that there was a connection there. I had so much fun on our first date and I was very disappointed when it was time for him to leave. It was weird for me to understand how I had just met him in person, but I felt like when he was leaving that a part of me was leaving with him. I wanted to cry. That is how strong our connection was.
In October of 2006, I was so glad to find out that Kenneth was returning home to Arkansas. I am so happy to have met my soul mate on blackplanet. I known some people are skeptical about online dating, but I could not have met a more positive individual. He is determined, strong, caring, and loving all at the same time. He has been there for me through some of the roughest times of my life in the past year. He has motivated me to do well in school and he is always there when I need someone to talk to. He is more then just my man, he is my best friend!
On August 27, 2007 we where blessed with the birth of our beautiful daughter Kendall. Thanks to BlackPlanet! We are so happy.
