I fell for a Marine that was heading off to Iraq!
I was first approached in October 2005 by (Ginuphine). I really wasn't looking for anything. He sent a couple of smiles and then an email asking for me to call him. Not my usual behavior, but something just pushed me to call. The first night we talked for 5 hours. I can count on one hand the number of days we missed. Then late November he told me some news that I was not expecting. I didn't realize what I was getting into dating and falling for a Marine. He was shipped off to Iraq.
I know that I could have easily walked away, but he had captured my heart. So we went through months of late nights on my part hoping to get a call (such a time difference), fear, concern for him and his safety, prayers, and hope for our future. Throughout this experience people found it hard to understand why I was waiting for him, why we were so invested in each other and the answer is just so simple..LOVE. It just feels so right. So finally we are together, and everything we have hoped for has come true.
One thing I'd like to point out is that there will always be doubters (not understanding of this Internet thing), but in the end it's just you and the person you love. Actually all of the doubters were silenced after they saw the love we have for each other. We are planning our wedding for December 10th of this year. We are both busy getting ready for that, as well as my move to Atlanta. I am so happy, in love and at peace about this man that God sent me. He asked his grandmother how she knew that his grandfather was the one, and she said she just knew. The apple didn't fall far from that tree.
