As for mi amor (my love) and I, I was on an online dating site and neither one of us were a paying member at the time. I was trying to get clever in giving out my screen names for instant messengers because you have to pay to talk to anyone. He was smart enough and thought on the same wavelength as I and was the only guy to get my clues. He popped up on my Yahoo IM one day. We began talking to each other almost everyday, when we could because of our time difference…8 hours. We both had to make sacrifices to stay up late into the night or get up early in the morning to talk. It was only 4 months into talking, that we joked about me coming to visit him. Consequently, the joke turned into reality, and I flew 4500 miles to Ireland in December 2008; we have been together since. We have flown back and forth since. He has visited in summer of 2009 for 3 weeks, January 2010 for 4 weeks, and lastly May 2010 for 2 weeks. I have made trips back to Ireland in November 2009 for another week, and June 2010 for 4 weeks.
I think I knew after only a few chats, that he wasn’t just like every other guy and knew after my trip to see him that I was in love. Even though we live 4500 miles apart, we try to talk to one another everyday. We live together and are married now!!!!!!
