We met online (I think how most international relationships start) through a Mormon dating website, in December. I can never remember the date, but Roberto always does. (He's a good guy.) I was originally looking for people to practice my Portuguese with since I was planning a trip with my best friend Michael. But Roberto caught my eye...so we started talking, then I called nearly every day...and fell in love. I changed my trip plans, and went to meet him. I spent nearly 2 weeks with him, and Roberto and I were engaged at the end! I didn't need anymore time to know how much i loved him, or how right we were for each other. So, now, we're getting married! April 26th, in the LDS Recife Temple. Oh, and he propsed to me while we were playing the in ocean! It was the best, most romantic proposal ever!
