WOW, what can I say. I met Joe on the internet in a 40’s chat room. My life up to that point was more or less useless and senseless. I lost my mother on my birthday and my then husband dumped me on the side of the road and said "I dont want to be married anymore so see ya." Nice guy. Anyway I called my son and my son and daughter joined forces and sent me to Michigan to be with my daughter.
She put me on the internet thinking that talking with other people would help me get thru the death of my mother. Luckily I met Joe in the chat room where I met a lot of nice people who if it wasn’t for all those that I met I dont know where I would be today.
Joe and I hit it off right away and we spent hours talking to each other thru the net, emailing etc. It got to the point where he and I would talk on the phone once in a while. He lived in illinois I was in mich so calls weren’t to fregrent. He asked if I would come to Illinois to meet him, I wasnt sure.
At this point we both had feelings, but I put him off for a while. I was beginning to fall in love with this man, he was just to good to be true. This was in 2000. Anyway, love blossomed and we both knew it, I came to Illinois and guess what I stayed.
He asked me to marry him over the internet but I wouldn’t give him an answer until after we had met. I came to Illinois and yes he asked me again and this time I said yes.
He has 4 young children whose mother gave up her rights in march of 2000. I knew all this before I came here. We were married in 2002 and the kids were in the wedding. They call me Mom and they are my kids also.
It is a wonder that by meeting someone over the internet could turn out to be a perfect man.
I am so happy I took the chance and came.
I have never had a more peaceful life than I have with Joe and the kids.
It’s a perfect marriage.
The one I always dreamed I would have and so has he.
