I was totally blown away.
After being on the site for only 1 month, in June 2006, I met what I believe is the most wonderful and loving man in the world. He was from Jacksonville, FL and I'm from Atlanta. We exchanged phone numbers almost immediately because chatting on-line can seem somewhat informal. After talking on the phone for almost 2 weeks, one Friday afternoon he called and asked if I would like to go out that night. My first thought was "You're in another State" anyway, I entertained his invitation and he said "I'll call you when I get to the airport". My first thought was that this guy is a "Joke" anyway, he did call me from the airport and told me what time his flight would arrive. I still didn't believe he was actually flying to Atl to see me. When he arrived at Atlanta airport, he called me and said, "Ok, where do I go from here". I was totally blown away. I directed the cab to take him to a gas Station nearby because I didn't want this stranger knowing where I lived. When I saw him at first, I was not very impressed he was dressed like a thug and he did not fit the mold of my ideal man. I had gotten a picture but just a head shot. he looked a little different than the picture. Anyway, I decided to just "Make the best of it". We drove around for a while and then found a local Reggae club that we agreed on since we both favoured reggae music. We had the best time I have had in a very, very long time. He was a perfect gentleman. At the end of the night, I took him back to his hotel that he had checked into earlier. I stayed to chat and eat and instead ended up staying with him that night. In the morning, we had breakfast and he caught his 3pm flight back home. Not sure what was happening but it seemed like we had known each other for a long time. In the weeks to follow, he came back to ATL almost every weekend we had so much fun. Sometimes spending 3-4 days in a hotel. I wasn't ready to bring him home just yet. We were really enjoying each others company. We went to the finest restaurants and nicest places. In August I went to visit him at his home in Jacksonville and that's when he popped the question. I was totally surprised. He said he knew without a doubt that I was the only one in this world for him and he did not want to lose me. He realized this while he was on a business trip to California where he purchased my beautiful 3 ct. Ring. I just stood there in shock for a minute and didn't answer. He said I didn't have to answer because he knew it was still early in the realtionship but he didn't want to lose me. I thought about it for a few hours and then I said "Yes". It just felt right. By the end of August he and given up his home in Florida and moved to Atlanta. We celebrated by going to LA for Labor day and life has been great ever since. We plan on getting married in September 2007. My children absolutely love him. The accepted him immediately into their lives which was a surprise to me. My family thinks he is wonderful because they can see how much he loves me. He is the perfect gentleman, a good provider and a good role model for my children. He treats them and loves them as he does his own. Thank you black singles for giving missisj & mulima our love connection
