Jaap and I met on Emozion, an MSN group, in May of 2001. We started really talking daily in November of that year and December 9th, he told me that he loved me ::wub:: He booked a flight for the US in January 2002. On January 23rd we got engaged here in my kitchen. A wine cooler, shared in two green-stemmed wine glasses, was our toasting tool ;) He's since been here three more times and I've been to Holland once in October 2002, when I met his whole family. He is the love of my life, I've kissed enough jerks to know that he's the frog I want to kiss for the rest of my life. I want to wake up to him everyday, go to sleep with him every night. I want to share my thoughts and feelings with him always. I've never found another who completes me like he does. He's very understanding. Though he can be a bit stubborn, we hardly ever argue and when we do, we just talk until we have it all talked out. We cry, we laugh, we go on. One thing that a long-distance relationship has taught me is how very important trust and communication are. Even though I could have found "a man from your own country", I would never give back this opportunity, which for me is a once in a lifetime chance at real true happiness that has been lacking in my life for so very long. He makes me look at the other side to each coin. I'm a more open and accepting person than I was before I met him and I am forever grateful for him. I thank his parents for bringing such a wonderful man into this world and I'll never let him go. I love you baby!
And you always knew that Kermit and Miss Piggy were always meant to be together HEHEHEH
