We met in September 2004 in College in Ireland where we happened to be room mates. We instantly got on great and were oficially a couple in Novmeber 04. Kari finished her course in August 2005 and returnetd to USA for 9 long months but we decided to keep the relationship going on distance basis. I visisted Kari in the USA in February 2006 for 10 days. Kari returned to Ireland in May 2006 to start a 2 year course in Limerick. In January 2008 I proposed and Kari thankfully accepted. Kari returned to the US in June 08 and we applied for the k1 visa in July. We plan to get married in 2009 in the USA. Kari is planning to come to Ireland for a week in November and a week at Christmas.
