Initially, I joined Blackplanet because I was bored and wanted to see what all the hype was about. Never in a million years would I think that I would find my future husband on the internet. I am truly blessed and if it wasn't for Blackplanet, I wouldn't be as happy as I am today.
Jblknqu sent me a note in June 2001 asking to check out his page. The first thing I noticed were his eyes, there was something special, didn't know what yet, but he was gorgeous so I responded. We became internet buddies and chatted on-line allllll day, at work, when I got home and until the wee hours of the morning. Come to find out we had so much in common. It felt as if we've known eachother for years. We both lived in the borough of Queens, NY and decided after a month of chatting on-line to finally meet in person.
July 13, 2001-We met at a Burger King and I realized he was even better looking in person. We drove to the city for some drinks and a movie and everything seemed to go just right, no awkward moments or anything. I felt so comfortable with him. We continued to see eachother every weekend and eventually met each other's friends and families. For once, everyone approved so he had to be the one! :-)
Almost 7 years later, we have a one-year old son and our wedding date set for MAY 19, 2007!!
