Cathy and Dre'

Met January 2006, Murfreesboro, TN Posted




On Feb 15th, 2006, Dre left a beautiful animated note in my guestbook after we had a friendly chat. He shared that he was just back from Iraq and lived in NC. After wishing him well I told him to keep in touch. Seeing his quote, "Mr. Lawrence has landed..." made me curious, (was he a AF vet or a Marine as he said?) and I checked out his page. I immediately liked what I saw but didn't think any more of it.

A few weeks later I saw him on line in 40s chat and asked him how he was. He then relocated to Tennessee, back to his home town and we exchanged numbers and talked daily and played dominoes online together. He always was a good friend to talk to and we'd share our relationship experiences and current BP experiences. He was always full of laughter and jokes and he always knew how to make me smile. I would always ask, "are you sure you don't have a girlfriend?" Then I finally asked him if he would be "exclusive" with me and he said yes. He said it was the happiest day of his life (and it was mine too).

We talked and talked every day, for hours, at home, on our jobs...fell asleep on the phone, cell bills skyrocketing, the family still laughs about it, we were obsessed! You would not believe how much of our lives were alike! Our experiences, habits and some products we used were almost the same. When we graduated to webcam it made our relationship more personal. We always have to explain to people, "Yeah, we were a little eccentric!!!" LOL!

Our school and work schedules always conflicted so the day that I finally touched my fiance last December was the day I left all in California and moved to Tennessee to be with him. Starting that day my life had never been so wonderful.

From our home office we always come and visit our friends in 40s chat and they love us too...it's always been like family and huggies to all of them!!!

This past Vday weekend he officially presented the ring and I just repeated the same answer as I have had for months before. "YES!!!"

Our date is set for the fourth week in June...and as always, we'll keep BP posted!!!

much love and hppiness to you both ! I have a story o share however...Last year may o6 I too though i had found love on black people meet. He was in virginia and i was in Minnesota. We shared some really special moments, ran up phone bills, spent tons of money on plane tickets, fell in love (so we thought) it was so exciting ! Turned out to be a disaster! I moved to virginia ,left my family and friends, my job, my home, my car, everything.....We planned a wedding for march 10th o7..just a fw weeks ago!

I GUESS WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS THE INSTANT GRATIFICATION THAT YOU FEEL MAY POSSIBLY BE THE REAL DEAL, BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL, TAKE YOUR TIME, MAYBE TRY TO LIVE SEPERATELY FOR A WHILE AND NURTURE THE RELATIONSHIP.I wish we had done things differently, i guess we were both longing for what most people want a serious, loving, health relationship.Yes we both wanted those things we just werent meant to be. I wish you all the joy and blessings in this world. Good luck- gone back home 2 minnesota!

Thank you everyone! We appreciate all the positive responce we've gotten from you all. The Black Planet members I've met have always been wonderful and we wish you all many blessings and happiness in life.

Dear Lowkee,
I just want to say that your experience wasn't in vain, it was to help you to better understand yourself, men and being in relationships. We have all had relationships that didnt work out and it was always based on what we thought we wanted and needed. One day I gave up and prayed, unashamed and whole heartedly and confessed that I needed what He already blessed me with but was unrevieled to me. I'm sure you know how God works so you know His blessings come in His own time and would be perfect because He knows what I need more than anyone.

It did take some time and a few relationships that ended and with each one, I respected them and wished them well in life with the knowledge that "...they were not the one for me, and that's ok. "...because I always k that...

What God has for me IS FOR ME!!!
