: Meant to say here's my story*!

 

Woops!

 

 

 

Hey guys

 

Well, my name's David... I'm just a 17 year old teen living life in the United Kingdom, I'm in full time work for a small insurance broking company and I've got a story to tell... I think it might make me feel better if I tell it.

 

I have no Idea how many of you will read over it and say "psh looser" or how many of you may have similar problems or whatever... anyway here goes.

 

It's 2004...I'm 13 years old and I'm in year 9 at school finishing off my SAT's... pretty much a regular kid who liked to play video games, got into trouble from time to time, but not too often, I dunno! Just a regular Brit-Kid.

 

Anyway... one day I'm playing Halo 2 via x-box live with my best friend at the time, James. I had (still do) my pc on my right and my tv on the left, so every two or three minutes I'd turn around to check the pc for MSN or whatever else... So... one time I turn around and a girl called Amanda added me! I asked how she got my email and said she didn't know... we went on to be close friends, she introduced me to her quiet friend Darrell (Despite the spelling, Darrell is a girl). I later find out that Amanda lived in a reasonably small town (in comparison with an English town) in South Dakota. I really didn't know much about the states so I had no Idea where that was! hah

 

Anyway... back to the point... a few weeks went by where me and Amanda got webcams so we could see each other, she had a really pretty face, and she was really interesting to talk to! She knew so much about the other side of the world that I really didn't know...anyway... I went on to date her. Things never went to well... turned out she was cheating on me with a couple of guys and she always tried guilt tripping me... but I liked her... we broke up and got back together at least 5 or 6 times. Each time her friend Darrell would tell me that Amanda is cheating on me... at the time I didn't believe it.

 

(intermission - just so you all know... I'm a terrible story teller... Sorry! )

 

Anyway... a year of on and off relationships went by, 2005 drifted along... I started my year 10 GCSE's (year 10 and 11 are the last years of UK schooling and the most important)... and one day a few months later Amanda spoke to me... eventually i fell for her again... I was never too smart with who I fell for... Well as you might of guessed... that turned out badly too..

 

After that... Darrell's boyfriend, Jon was treating her badly and abusing her... she lived in south dakota, he lived in Puerto Rico (sp?), I tried to help her... I spoke to her more, we became much closer friends than before. She was a truly genuinely nice girl. Time went on...2006...2007, not a lot happened, although I was finally out of school by 07! I did it! I finished school! I had always planned to get a job and go meet Amanda and live happily ever after! hah (Exaggerated a teeny bit). Anyway... Darrell had been going through a few rough relationships after she broke up with Jon as well as her very close grandmother dying just before Christmas 07... Bless her soul

 

Well.. I started college... I started developing feelings for Darrell... I felt... as though we had been looking out for each other for a while now... I was falling in love. That's what it was. She didn't want to give guys a chance after her ex's... but she still spoke to me... A couple of months into college.. well I quit. Was it too hard? Nope. I mostly got C's in school by the way, ohh and an A in computing. Anyway... I quit... because I was ready to meet the world. I didn't want further education. I wanted to broaden my life... Sometime in December that year, Darrell told me she loved me... I asked her a few weeks later.. on Christmas day... would she permit me to meet her...

 

I really wanted to meet her. I had never known her in my life (in person)... yet I felt I knew everything about her. Her parents said yes... I came to stay with them in May 2008 for 6 weeks after quitting my job and saving (silly i know... but i did it )

 

And... Here's the crazy part as if you didn't think all that was silly.. well...4 weeks in... We had an argument... she didn't want me to go.. she had never met someone like me, nor me like her... and we were arguing quite a bit... she was getting upset with me, things got louder and louder everything was getting crazy, so I made a snap decision... I got on my knee and said "Darrell... will you marry me".

 

She cried... and said yes. Her father approved as I guess he liked my accent (or so i was told Anyway... I did it so I could prove to her I'd be back... I didn't want to loose her... it was not a coincidence in life that our lives had come together... it was what I am still convinced is destiny... or however you want to call it... I didn't ever want to loose her... so anyway

 

I flew back in September, then I flew back there on the 14th December and stayed till the 6th Jan 09... now I'm back...

 

And it's 5 months until I see her again... We will both make it... I have 100% faith in her but here we are 5 years later...

 

We're getting married on the 17th December 2009 x

 

 

I guess I wanted to know if I was the only one... that's why I wrote all this stuff... I'm curious... well I guess I gotta know... who else is in this boat.. am i the only one sailing it..?

 

By the way... anyone who wants to say I'm too young... well. I've heard that enough already. Age does not matter to feelings.

 

Anyway... thanks for reading guys... I think just writing this made me feel a little better... darn I just don't know what to do with myself...

 

 

 

 

Well that's my story.. (lame as it may be to some people)

 

David. (there's me and my darrell on the left hand side... my picture)

Hey Davie,

 

I'm 22... and met the love of my life online. He just turned 27 the other day, and is heading down here for a visit while we do the long distance thing.

 

I knew him for over eight years before we finally met up. It took a series of relationships apart from one another and a strong friendship that persevered sometimes over weeks of not even chatting, to get to the place where we are now...

 

He's someone I can see myself with for the rest of my life. So in a way, my story relates somewhat to yours!

 

Congrats! But I want to ask... are you going to make sure that you can actually spend ample time together before December 2009? Please do! It took me two years to realize that my first love wasn't the right man for me, and we saw each other a few times a week.

She's coming to England in May to be with me for a month or so and I'll be going there (I hope) sometime between her going there and December!

 

I guess people never can tell whether it'll work or whether he or she is the right one... but I did know that I'd regret it for the rest of my life If I just let her slip away...

Well portage, a lot of people are telling me it won't work. I'm going to prove the world wrong. I swear it, I declare it!

 

Then i vote for the underdog, why not???? I know one couple who married at 16 and it is now 12 years later...each others first love.

 

And they still look at each other smitten. I'VE SEEN IT.

Hey David,

 

Just wanted to wish you both all the best, I love hearing stories like yours, they are indeed an inspiration and a wonderful reminder that anything is possible. As the poster below said, you followed your heart and that's the most important thing anyone can do, and don't listen to those who doubt you.

Well that's the question isn't it!

 

Seriously ready?

 

Ok... I'm serious. Very very serious xx

 

And ready? Well I consider myself ready. I don't like to back down to problems. So if one arises, I will eliminate it. Simple!

 

I will show people it can be done, although thank you for your best wishes
