Mark and I met on Blackplanet in April 2005. I received a note from him asking if he could get to know me. When i looked at his page and saw his picture I thought he was about 15, and I was wondering why the little boy was trying to get to know me. After reviewing his page and looking at his age, i sent him a note back and said yes and we exchanged yahoo im's.
We were on each other's yahoo for about 2 weeks before we actually spoke to each other, we kept missing each other online. Then one day i was online and he was at the same time and we started chatting. We exchanged numbers and began talking on the phone for hours at a time. We finally decided to meet up, what I didn't know is that we lived around the corner from each other and I passed his house everyday on my way to work.
I must admit he looked so young i did ask him to see his I.D. i really thought he was lying about his age, i was not trying to get in trouble for dating and underage child, lol. We became a couple shortly after and within a few months we were engagaed to be married.
We got married on October 15, 2005. And have been happy every since we have been together. We just celebrated our one year anniversary. I was never looking to hook up with anyone on the net just to chat and make new friends. So who says you can't find love on the internet.
