Hi Everyone!!

My name is Dale.  Obviously from New Zealand.  I met my partner, Darin almost 12 years ago online.  Like every love story ever told we became great friends, lived thru ups and downs in life thru our friendship.  We both knew we had something special but just like the movies ignored it until a year ago.  I went to the US this past Feb to meet my best friend and the love of my life and here we are....that crazy man proposed (on my bday)!  Trust me there is a romantic comedy movie in that.  

 

Anyway I'm really glad I found this site. I love hearing people's stories and all the support is amazing.  Hope I get to chat with some of you, stop by and say hi

AWWW, this is amazing!  My husband and I were friends for 8 years before we admitted to any feelings and we attempted a relationship.  So, the best of luck to you! 

 

Here are a few tips:

 

In order for others to help you, you need to fill your timeline as you move through the process.

 

It looks like you are already following the proper threads, since you already submitted the K1 visa application back in May-June, right?  Just continue to search for threads according to the application process and month in which it falls.  Hope that makes sense.

 

Finally, patience is key in the process and with one another as you move through any of the applications.  Don't be discouraged!

 

CONGRATS!!
