Wow... I was on black planet looking for just a friend. When I met Gerald, I had no interest in pursuing anything more than that. Every day we spent together, I knew he was not just another "blackplanet man".
After a few months, I fell in love. What's crazy is I was not trying to fall in love. I had my share of past relationships and at the age of 30, I knew I was looking for someone different than what I had in the past.
It's amazing because I thought I knew what it was like to fall in love, and in reality, I really hadn't experience true love, until August 2007. After trying to fight the feeling (and losing), I confessed my true love for him, and I knew that Gerald was the man I been looking for.
Gerald had the opportunity to meet my family in Wisconsin. Everybody loved him. What put the icing on the cake is when I took him to Mississippi to meet my mom, and she welcomed him with open arms, and treated us with royalty for the whole week we were there.
Ok, to make a long story short.....Gerald proposed to me in December. We are engaged and our Wedding was May 24, 2008.
It is rare that you find your sole mate online, but when you do, it is a blessing to find your equal. We compliment each other and I truly believe he was heaven sent.
To any woman that is searching for that perfect man, stop searching for it, concentrate on getting yourself together, and true love will find a way of finding you, I can testify to that. I know that I would have never found him, had I been looking for what I thought was the good man in my life.ve never found him, had I been looking for what I thought was the good man in my life.
