Delmar had sent me a crush on BP in about 2002. We lost touch and then, somehow reconnected with another crush sent in August 2003.
I lived in the Bay Area and he lived in San Diego, but I was willing to relocate for the right person. We began chatting on Instant Messenger and then, shortly on the telephone. We talked about everything, from looks to values to expectations and views on important relationship issues to likes and dislikes.
We finally decided to meet, in person, in October 2003. We hit it off and from then on began a long distance relationship. On Christmas 2003, Delmar proposed and we'd planned on marrying in October 2004, one year from the time we met.
We knew what we wanted and what we were looking for and realized that we had found it. Military deployment was imminent for Delmar so we decided to have a small wedding sooner than expected in May 2004.
We have been happily married for over a year with a new baby boy.
