My fiance's smile and full lips is what did it for me.

From the moment we seen each other at the airport we both had the same thought, only in different languages, "this person looks familiar to me, comfortable to me, as if we had known each other forever. I did not know Ekaterina had these same thoughts until i asked her..after the marriage.."what was your first impression of me?" The following 5 days we began to notice something, without knowing each other's languages...ok i knew 5-6 words of Russian. :) we instinctively

were able to notice and accommodate each other's needs and somehow communicate how we thought on certain subjects. as our language skills increased as time went on, there was even more reinforcement of this instinct.

HOWEVER if you want a simple physical answer it is her beautiful Blue eyes, long curly hair and her smile. and her smokin hot rear end....but i like my first paragraph better.

That's sweet. But you don't speak each other's language or have a common language?

You're going to laugh. I remember back in the day in Panama when somebody from one of the bases married someone from the "interior"(country),they would communicate in this make-shift sign language.It was a a funny sight to see.

I bet. I can't imagine it. I love to talk. Most of the time I'm not saying anything but I need to talk.

I saw her suck a golf ball through a garden hose. The rest is history.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Me too. Can't imagine there's a lot of depth to a relationship like that. Or much chance of getting a visa.
