Rustie, what kind of cars do you like? I come from a holden - mad family. My whole family loves old cars. The older the better.

I love reading love stories, its so romantic.

Well, I met my gorgeous boyfriend at a club. I was playing pool with some friends and so was he with his friends on another table. I didn't even notice him until he came over to help me, I'm really bad at pool. He showed me how to correctly hold the cue (I got butterflies in my stomach when he had his arms around me to show me how to hold it) and how to actually hit the balls into the pockets. After that we just got talking, exchanged numbers and its just gone from there. We've been together for four months (it was four months on friday).

That was really cool electronic girl. I just had to say lol
Ive been with my finance for 7 years now. We met on the chat thing ICQ. I had only just started using the internet and i met him. I lived in Adelaide and he lived in Mt. Gambier. We were talking every night and had lots of fun. I would get butterflies when he came online lol.
We had been talking for a few months and then he sort of asked me out even tho we hadn't met or anything. One night he called me and his voice was so deep and sounded so cute lol. I was 14, almost 15 when we met and he was 17 i think.
He had family living up here and came up in the school holidays so we decided to meet up in a busy shopping center. I missed my bus and was running heaps late and was lucky that he stuck around and waited for me. We hit it off and spent as much of the holidays together as we could and then after that one of us would travel to see each other. We were lucky that our parents were ok with us to do it.
He was always there for me after losing my mum and drove up the night he found out. and was there for me when i lost my dad as well. He was always there for me when i was suffering depression and pretty much saved my life. If it wasn't for him i probably wouldn't be here today..

After he finished year 12 his mum decided to move to Melbourne for a job and he was given to choice to go or stay there or come to Adelaide. He choose Adelaide and lived with my family for a bit until he got his own place.
We lived together from when i was almost 18 and we got engaged in January this year. He was so sweet. He asked e at the cemetery on my dads anniversary of his death while we were putting flowers up there. he said he wanted to turn a bad day into a good day :D

I never laid eyes on him until that night (awwwww) and 14 years later and 2 daughters later we are still together and still very much in lurve!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I'll post my story (again) and then comment!

We actually met online. I've really never told many people (except my Mum and sister) that!!! We met September 11, 2006 on chat avenue. We were both meant to be studying... But I guess I was feeling a little lonely, and googled chat rooms. We only spoke for a minute or so... But I felt something. Anyways, we exchanged numbers! Jye lived in Melbourne at the time... But was planning on moving here to build his career. I knew I was in love within a week of us talking. There was just something... It was unexplainable.

Jye moved up to Sydney in January this year... Yet we didn't meet until 11th of June, 2007. I just couldn't! I had a bad break up beforehand... Which ultimately led me to put on about 30kg in a year... And I just didn't trust men. I knew that us meeting would make me vulnerable and I was scared. I was scared of everything!!! But he stuck by me... Through September to June. He was determined to show me that he was real... and that this was real. What man does that?!?!

I was out with my girlfriend on the 11th of June for dinner and a movie... And just contacted Jye randomly and told him to be at mine at midnight. We met! It was wonderful! He was even more gorgeous in person... And to be honest - he had never seen a picture of me!!! EVER! I was embarrassed about what I looked like... I know I'm pretty - but weight causes emotional and physical barriers. But - Jye made me feel so comfortable and so beautiful. The first thing he said to me after we met (he was playing with my left hand) was how beautiful an engagement ring would look on my finger. I knew from that second that this is for real. I just wish I hadn't doubted myself for so long - I wasted 9 long months!!!

To be honest, meeting online was the best thing possible in my situation. We became best friends before meeting... And we were so open and honest with everything. I knew who I was falling in love with. The only thing we had was words - so we used them to the best of our ability. Now we are just enjoying eachother's company... Enjoying just lying in one another's arms and not saying a thing. Or exploring Sydney! So far we've been to the zoo, to Avoca for a weekend away, to the Blue Mountains, to Balmoral beach, on a walk from Balmoral to Clifton Gardens, on a Harbour Cruise and many more things. It's so fun exploring this city and letting our guard down!

So - a word of advice - be open to love... In any form! You never know how it will find you!!!

Nikki - I love your story... But it made me cry!!! Love is so beautiful and so sacred... And I'm glad you found the one (out of several!!!) for you!

Carmen - I have said this to you before... But girl - you are planning my wedding!!! You looked absolutely stunning. Unbelievable! I'm in awe.

I can't wait for all of you single ladies to find a man that is deserving of your love. Bella, you especially, because I only want the best for you! Move to Sydney... I'll hook you up!!!
