Marissa & Becky
Typically people meet online from Eharmony or Match.com, something like that. But Becky and I, being the dorks that we are, met on a roleplay site. Writing stories based on ready made characters/real people. She had just joined as another and I left her a message to welcome her in and to message me anytime. Surely enough she did. We connected very quickly and soon became friends.
We then met eachother that summer at an Anime Convention in Baltimore. We were both dressed up and she had spotted me but when she called me over I didn’t recognize her at all for a few seconds, I must have had a pretty blank expression on my face or something. But a few seconds later the blonde hair clicked into my head and we hung out for the rest of the day.
This stayed the same for a while, a few months later add in arising feelings and you get two very confused girls. Harboring these feelings, that we weren’t so confident in sharing with eachother, the old fear of rejection, we did however have one thing to look forward too; another anime convention that we would be able to see eachother again. And for this event we had both told ourselves that we would ask the other person out. But we were both far too shy, and despite all the perfect opportunities that we had (since at this point we did act like a couple but..we weren’t, it confused alot of people), neither of us asked.
Finally someone tipped off our friend Jane that I had feelings for Becky (to this day we have no idea who or how Jane knew) and Becky and myself asked eachother out on the one year anniversary of us meeting face to face. It was a joined asking out process what can I say?
Later on in our relationship we talked so much about becoming engaged and getting married, but it wasn’t truly finalized until I went to spend the week with Becky in New Jersey when she gave me my ring.
