Our Online Love Story

When I first saw that Savanah from What Makes Savanah Smile & Jessica from You are my color posted about doing an "Online Love Story" link-up... I was hesitant. I met my boyfriend, C, online... but not in the conventional Match.com sort of way. So, I was wary to share with you all our story. But, after consideration, I'm dishing the details. When I started this blog, I made a vow to myself that I was going to be real. Not totally uncensored (I am a perspective teacher; don't want anything that might compromise my character out there in the internet world)... but real. As a part of keeping that vow, I wanted to open up to you all and tell you how C and I met.

Rewind back to September of 2008...

I was living on my own... enjoying suffering through my second year of college.

I had signed up for a website called "Hot or Not" a few years prior as a joke sort of... my brother & I are only 3 years apart in age and he thought it'd be quote "fun" to see which of us got the highest score on this website. Shallow? Absolutely. No shame in admitting that! Well... little did I know I still had an active account. I received an e-mail from Chris introducing himself and saying hello. It was the kindest e-mail and he seemed genuine and honestly... a little too good to be true. I was enjoying the single life and dating around, but figured what's the harm in just getting to know this mysterious, kind stranger better.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Hot or Not, here's a screenshot. (Sorry girl who's picture was on the home screen)

We exchanged e-mails for a little over a month... long e-mails. I'm talking short novels. One day it randomly came up that he lived in the same exact neighborhood as my mom. Even more surprising, he lived a couple streets over from her.

After much internal debate and conversations with friends... I decided to take C up on his offer to come hangout during a football party at his house. I was hesitant because you hear all of these creepy stories about guys online.

I arrived at his house and was unbelievably nervous...

Is he really going to be a 40 year old man with 6 cats?
Should I still run while I have the chance?

He opened the door and all of my doubts flew out the window. He was decked out in his Ohio State Jersey and had a smile on his face that took my breath away. Oh, and he wasn't a 40 year old man with 6 cats.

From that day on, we spent a lot of time together getting to know one another. After a few months... we decided to make it official. He was mine.

Little did I know that a silly little website would lead to a lifetime of love.
