Hello all, my name is Dave and I have a bit of a story to tell, actually it's got some insight too, I think.
Personally I feel that there is someone for everyone somewhere on this planet, but the chances of finding that perfect person in the real world (i.e. outside the computer and the net) are very slim, but this is an entire other world where people and things come together to make an entire universe of perfection. Here it's easy to meet that perfect someone, because instead of being confined to the same boring people day after day, seeing the same faces at a glance and dismissing them just as quickly, people here can express themselves without fear of being judged, without the fear of being ridiculed by a peer or a family member. And that openess draws that perfect person closer and closer until the day when they do find each other and turn a friendship into a meaningful and fulfilling relationship.
To me the internet is more than a information super-highway...it's somewhat like a worldwide dating service where everyone looking and not looking can find that PERFECT person that exsists just for them.
Myself, I am an example of that, I wasn't looking to meet anyone or to find that perfect person. I had come out of a 3 year relationship that resulted in a child, a daughter Alyxandria, that I will always love no matter where she or I may end up. That relationship had nothing that either of us wanted, nothing that either of us needed and I chose to leave. I began to frequent the net, not chatrooms or message boards, just surfing and being content to do so.
Then one day I was introduced to a woman by a friend of mine who also resides on the net. This woman, who's name is Alexandra incidently, and I began to talk and with every word she typed I could feel something that I had never experienced from anyone that quickly. I didn't know what it was at first, but as our conversations became more and more involved and more intimate I knew that I was falling in love with this woman. We began to talk more frequently, exchanging e-mails and phone calls, and as we shared things about each other that no one in this world knew other than ourselves I fell completely in love with her.
Now, 3 months later, I KNOW that I am in love with her, I KNOW that I want to spend the rest of my life making her happy, and being happy myself. there is no way around this, and I don't want anyone to try and show me one. I LOVE Alexandra, and I always will. I do love her with all my heart and soul, I used to curse this infernal internet for being boring and drab, but now I have found the one person that has made it all seem so much more than just a bunch of electronic pages and faceless names...she is my perfection...you make me perfect. Although we live quite some distance apart, but in the same country, I have taken it upon myself to move from where I am to be with her, and you know, that is the easiest decision I have ever had to make in my entire life, no second thought or reconsideration, just "I have to go".
We, along with many others are proof positive that LOVE and HAPPINESS can be found on the internet.
