Ed, my husband and I met through mutual friends. Ed is a long haul truck driver and was talking to the husband of my best friend and just jokingly asked him if he knew any single women. We were introduced and talked through email and yahoo messenger for a while.
I flew up to Canada a few months later to meet him in person. Almost a year later I went up on a visitor visa and we dated for a couple of years. I kept renewing my visitor visa thinking I would eventually immigrate to Canada. On Halloween of 2008 we were married and eventually decided to immigrate him to the States instead of me to Canada. So we moved me back down to Texas where I was from originally and then began the immigration for Ed. It has been very hard being separated by such a huge distance from each other but there have been visits almost every 6 months so that helped. And now Ed has his interview date set for Jan 10th and *crossing fingers* everything goes as well as we want and we won't be living in 2 different places for much longer.
