Tarig and I met in March of 2003 when I was in Paris for 3 days. A former co-worker of the time knew my fiance for years and recommended that I stay with his mother while in Paris as she has a lot of room. I did, and spent some time sightseeing with Tarig as well. We have kept in touch since then and he has visited me in the US twice, and in the summer of 2005, I told Tarig how I felt. We have been together ever since!
