Boris and I met through a series of coincidences. Boris was here on a J1 visa, and we were both visiting friends--other J1 students--who happened to be living in the same place. Turns out that he was working as a lifeguard in the same apartment complex where my offices are located. We would see each other there, started hanging out, then dating, and then fell in love. Boris went home to Russia in Sept., and I visited him in St. Petersburg in Jan. 06. By May he was back in the US on a K1.
