Greetings Everyone -

I am so glad that there is a place like this where I am hoping that people will understand how I am feeling. My name is Jen and I am 29 from Washington State. I am the co-host of a christian message board on MSN. About a month ago I met a great guy on the board. His name is Steve. It turns out that Steve is the best friend of my co-host Darren and Darren and I have known each other for over a year, although Darren and I have never met we are best friends. Anyway, enough about Darren and back to Steve. Steve and I hit it off right off the bat. It seems as if we have known each other forever. I live in Washington State and he lives in Victoria BC Canada, which is acutally not that far away!!! :-) Steve and I both already feel that God has put us in each others lives to spend the rest of our lives together. About 6 years ago I made a list of all the qualities that I want in a future husband and Steve meets every one of those qualities. We talk on the phone at least once a day and then also on the computer. We are planning on meeting the first weekend in August!!!! So just a little over a month away. I am so excited. I am just hoping that you all can understand how I feel. The other board that I belong to here on Ivillage, the ladies have done nothing but rag on me for falling so fast for someone that I have never met. But here are my thoughts. God has someone out there for everyone and I feel that God has brought Steve into my life to be that person!!!

Jen, welcome to our board. I am so happy you came to our family. We are all in the same boat when it comes to the excitement of meeting someone for the first time, and being on line in a relationship. I think you can learn alot here, and I hope we can all support each other as we always have here, in each other's lives. This is a great place. You are not alone and please feel free to jump right in and post as much as you like. I am usually on the board all day if you need to talk or just cut up with someone. I share the same belief as you, that God has someone for everyone. Why else would we be here if it was not?! lol Goodluck to you and please keep us updated on your meeting with Steve!!

Gail :)
