Wedding Story

She Made a Believer Out of Me

I had always been against meeting people online. I didn't believe you could possibly meet someone worth while that way and really didn't have much faith that there was a girl out there for me, but after moving to a new city and not knowing anyone, I decided that I would resort to using the internet to meet new people.

One night, I was online looking to meet some new lesbians around the area I lived in when I came across Sonia's profile. I instantly thought she was beautiful, so I read about her. When her profile said she lived in Brentwood, assumed that meant Brentwood in the L.A./Southern CA area, which turned out to be wrong. Thinking that she lived fairly close, I decided to send her a message and say hello. I quickly realized that she lived in Brentwood in Northern CA, but after talking to her for a few days the distance didn't seem to matter so much.

After talking online and on the phone for a week or so, we decided we should find a way to meet. So a couple of weeks later, my sister and I made the trip to Northern CA to spend the weekend hanging out with Sonia.

I was so nervous on the plane ride over that I could hardly sit still. What if she didn't like me? What if I wasn't cute enough? All the typical questions before you meet someone for the first time were running through my head. I remember seeing her as I walked off the plane and telling myself to breathe, while at the same time hearing my sister say, "Damn, why do you always get the hot girls?" It was great to have a little comic relief at that moment.

Once we were close enough to actually say hi to each other, Sonia and I didn't say hi at all. All we could do was hug. It just seemed right. I had never felt like I fit together with someone so well. There was an instant connection. I knew I had to get to know this woman and before I left to go back home, she made sure I knew she felt the same way. I was amazed that we could feel so strongly so quickly. After all, I was never one to believe in love at first sight but she made a believer out of me. We've been together ever since.

Fast forward 4 years 5 months and 1 week…here we are living in our home in Northern CA with our two dogs and cat, planning our wedding, and loving every second of our life together.
