- Wedding: September 2012
My Fiance and I met when I was a dispatcher (around Aug 2009) and he was a driver – well.. he worked with a driver I was dispatching. I lived in Michigan and he lived in Louisiana but worked all over the US (Moving Furniture). Well they were in MI (Oct 2009)and asked if I wanted to meet- and after talking on the phone so much you kind of get a feel for who’s friendly, who’s well.. creepy.. and so on.
I felt okay meeting with them so we did. It wasn’t like love at first sight or anything, we (the three of us) hung out in a bar in “old town”, and that was that. They went their way I went mine. We (me and my now FI) did keep in touch through text messaging.. which turned into phone calls… which turned into “holy crap its 3am and I have to work in the morning” calls. 😉
Finally he asked me to be his girlfriend. (Nov 21, 2009) Knowing fully that seeing eachother would come very few and far between, I said yes. There was just something different about him.
I did go to Louisiana twice to visit. Once in Mid Dec 2009, and then again in Feb 2010. By then… I dont know.. I can’t explain it. Everything felt SO right with him. He asked me to move down to Louisiana, and.. I did. March 21, 2010. 4 months after deciding to date. I know.. sounds crazy. Everyone said it wasn’t “like me” to do something so bold…but I have never in my life been this happy.
He proposed January 15, 2011. We will be getting married April 21, 2012.
Our LDR isn’t one where you know the set amount of time until you see eachother again. To me its like it will always be a LDR? Maybe it shouldnt be considered that at all? All I know is, I don’t know when he will be back home, I only know when he leaves. Just recently he was gone for the whole month of March, came home for about 4 days, then left again. Yesterday they surprised us by coming home just for the night.. and then left at 6 this morning. I’ll take my one night of snuggles though! =)
Its kind of a crazy life, but I love him so much its just sooo worth it. He treats me like nobody hasbefore, and when you find that, you hold on to it no matter what!
Sorry that turned out so long. =)
