My boyfriend and I met on Blackplanet at the beginning of June in 2006. He sent me a message telling me that he thought that I was beautiful, that he liked my smile, and that he'd like to get to know me. Before I even messaged him back I went onto his page to see if he had any thing on there that I didn't like, for example, naked women, cuss words, etc.
He didn't have any negative things on his page, so I messaged him back. We started talking back and forth on Blackplanet for a couple weeks, and when I was comfortable I gave him my phone number. So, we started talking on the phone; long conversations until 6 in the morning, and everytime I talked to him I seemed to get these butterflies in my stomach. I felt like I was floating. It was wierd how God had us meet because I never date anyone I met online.
Another reason that I knew God had brought us together was because the store that I worked at was robbed. Long story short, I was working at Toys R Us at the time and a guy came in and robbed me at gunpoint. He took the gun, cocked it, and put it to my head. Women were screaming and crying all around me, but I wasn't scared. I don't know why I wasn't, but I just wasn't. Anyway.... When I met Aaron (some people know him as Curtis because that is his first name... ) he helped me get through that process, because after the robbery I started getting paranoid and having nightmares.
Please keep in mind that this whole time we still were not dating and had not met in person.... eventually he said, "Hey girl, when I am going to get to see that beautiful smile in person?" I thought to myself, Oh no!!! He wants to meet me!! Lol, most girls would have been thrilled but I was nervous and scared.
We met and went out to the movies on our first date and I was so nervous that I didn't even look at him when I opened the door, I looked down at the ground as I greeted and hugged him. As I ran up the stairs to get my jacket I couldn't help but notice that he was eyeing my butt. So we went to the movies, had a ball, and had a couples dates after that. One day we were talking on the phone and I noticed that he was trying to ask me if I would be his girlfriend. I laughed to myself thinking how shy he was so I decided to help him out.
As he struggled to find the words to say, I sent him a text message saying, "Just ask me, you know you want to." He said he was feeling confident and at 12 midnight October 23, 2006 I was officially his girlfriend. We have been dating faithfully ever since. We plan on getting married in 2 years.
Everyday I grow to love him much more than I did the first day we met. It's funny because I knew from the 1st month that we talked on the phone that we would get married. I knew in my heart that I had found my King, and I am happy to say that I have found a love and a bond so strong that no one and nothing could come in between it.
Yes, we have our differences, but we both know how to compromise to make it work. He is such a caring, kind, and chivalrous guy. I love him with everything in me, and I can honestly say that if I had to die for him that I would gladly and unselfishly do so. He knows that he can ask me for anything and that I will gladly give it to him. I am dedicated to him mentally, emotionally, and eventually physically. He has my heart now and forever and I pray that everyone finds a love so strong, and that they hold on to it and treasure it.
Thanks for making this happen!
