On 7/30/09 I browsed profiles in the UK on www.christianmingle.com, saw her profile and thought I'd give it a shot. So I emailed her, she "smiled" back at me, but didn't write. So I "smiled" back hoping to nudge her along. She finally wrote to me, we moved to online chat, phone then video chat on Skype. Within 10 days we knew we wanted to meet, so I went out over Labor Day weekend to England and we completely hit it off.
She returned for Thanksgiving (her first trip to the US!) and by then we were already talking marriage possibilities. I went back for New Years, asked her parent's blessing and got it. She came just 10 days later to the US for her birthday and we got engaged the day she got here! We worked on our I-129F packet and I sent it off a week after she left. It's been a wild ride, but we're happy to have found each other and can't wait to start our lives together!
