Gail -- although I haven't met you yet, I feel as if I know you (somewhat) from reading all your funny-and-adorable posts. You make me laugh and I enjoy reading about your story. Your "Member of the Week" is a FABULOUS idea! I appreciate the fact that you are so open and honest w/ everyone's questions, which is not an easy task. Hmmm, if I post here long enough, maybe I can be a potential candidate for "Member of the Week." (You can take me into consideration someday :)
Anyhoo, here's my story and I will try to make it short but sweet. Almost 4 years ago, I went online to an AOL Local Chatroom. I was in a sad mood that evening and wanted someone to make me laugh so I checked out other people's profiles in that chatroom. I came across a hilarious profile and just HAD to IM him, so I did and the rest as they say is history! I take credit for pursuing him :) We IM'd for what seemed like hours that evening, then emailed each other daily, later exchanged phone numbers and in one month's time, we met in person at a local Starbucks. He lives 20 minutes away via the freeway (we live in Southern California -- L.A. area). I was instantly attracted to him upon meeting him for the first time, which was like a blind date actually because we never exchanged pics online. Good thing we were both honest about what we looked like! That initial meeting lasted 7 hours, as we met on a Sunday afternoon and I didn't arrive home until 8:00 p.m.! No, we weren't at Starbucks for that long. We ended up driving (in our own cars) to a place to eat near where he lives and walked along the beach afterwards where he kissed me. Awww, sounds romantic doesn't it?
Well, in a nutshell, that is my story. Any questions?
