I feel very fortunate and blessed because my experience on this site has always been one where respect and decorum was the norm, beyond that I really didn't expect that much. It was early into my induction to this site that I did make friends. I had started chemotherapy at that time so romantic thoughts were far from my head. I just needed friends to connect with and feel better.
It was that latter part of last year and the first part of this year that I started writing to "Natofborg" because she had alot of issues about Christianity and the Church. As an Adventist from birth, I was interested in what she wanted to say. We wrote and she would explain her views to me and I would respond with the best intelligent information I had or could get. This went on for about three months. I tried setting her up with a friend of mine, he never contacted her so I continued in his stead and then we became friends.
Emails turned into phone calls, and she bought the same cell phone provider that I had so our calls could be cheap. We talked for another five months and she indicated that she was coming to California to see her Grandparents. I, of course, offered to pick her up at the airport and get her to her destination safely, which I did.
She was in California appox. 10 days and I saw her 2 of the ten days. I also saw her back to her plane. This was in August of this year, I told her that I wanted to know Florida and she said the best time for me to go and see her was over Labor Day Weekend. I was there in Tampa, FL for three very nice days and it was harder to leave that time. She then told me that her Grandfather was gravely ill and that she was planning a final trip to California the first week of October. I helped with the flight, and pledged that she would not get away this time. She arrived on a Tuesday. I proposed marriage to her that first weekend and she accepted. I looked into the job market in Florida and saw some good opportunities I could check out. I moved to Tampa the same day she returned to Florida.
We have set a Wedding Date of December 9th to be married on the beaches in the State of Florida.
It takes time, patience, intelligence, honesty and an open mind to what God has in store for our lives daily. Sometimes God allows trials and trebulation, but He also bestows blessings such as "Natofborg" in my life, that I hope to cherish until God allows that death do us apart.
May God bless you and this ministry,
