Dean - I've saved the best til last.
Dean is the best thing that has ever happened to me, I love him so much.
We have been together for nearly 20 months. He lives in Liverpool, I live in Edinburgh but we manage. We see each other for about a week or so out of every month. It's not ideal, we would love to be together all the time but circumstances just have to dictate to us.
We met for the first time on 12th July 2001, in Books Chat on AOL, he was DeanMDd21 and I was MagicMoments2219, we saw each other around online for about 2 months, not really noticing each other that much, then we met again on 11th September 2001 at 13:45pm, just as A.A. Flight 11 crashed into South Tower of the W.T.C. This brought us together, we sat 250 miles apart watching in disbelief as the story infolded. How could something undescribably tragic bring two people together? Does that make us bad people or just make us stronger?
When we decided to meet up, it was probably mid October, we aggreed that Dean would come up to Edinbugh on Saturday 1st December 2001, this was the LONGEST 6 weeks of our lives. In a way it was probably good for us, we got to know each other very well, spoke on the phone (ruunning up huge bills!) text, emailed, IMed... Got to know everything about each other.
When the 1st finally came round, we felt we knew each other well. There was no akward silences, no gaping holes in things we could talk about. It was amazing, we knew that weekend that we had something very special.
Our fist year came and went, becoming more in love every day, on our first anniversary together we went to
The Witchery. He gave me my ring, a white gold eternity band with 15 inset diamonds on it, the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It was never intended to be an engagement ring, just a ring from him to me to show how much he loved me.
Other people made it an engagement ring, people couldn't understand why anyone would by me a ring if the weren't proposing so it sort of became an engagment ring too! We have never been ones to want the limelight, to say "look at us, we're getting married" so we never announced it, word of mouth just kind of spread!
We will get married, hopefully it wont be years away, we just want a small wedding, 20 people would be absolutely brilliant. I'd love to get married at Traquair House. We want to live in
Peebles, which is a quiet town about 20 miles from Edinburgh. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long, once he gets a job here the ball can start rolling.
Anyway, I better stop going on about him... You're probably reaching for the sick bucket! ;-)
Love and hugs
