I've finally met a man who makes my heart feel complete.
How a Prince and Princess Fell In Love...
I joined BlackSingles.com in May of 2008, as did Derrick. We were both on the site for approximately three weeks when Cupid's arrow struck us. Derrick had sent me a smile at first, then he sent me an e-mail. When I noticed that he lived in Washington, DC and I lived in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, I was afraid that there would be too many miles between us to really spark a relationship, but I was wrong. I e-mailed Derrick and asked him if he thought that Philadelphia and Washington were too far apart, but to my surprise, he said that "love knows no distance." I had to stop and think, because I had never heard a more true statement. Well, after thinking about this statement, my mind headed in a different direction and it made me see that Derrick was a man who knew what he wanted and was going after it, which is the kind of man I was looking for. So, I asked him to send me a picture. When I saw his picture, I definitely liked what I saw. At first when he wanted to talk to me, the "shy bug" had taken me over and I declined talking to him. But when he requested to speak to me a second time, I couldn't deny him. That night we talked to each other on-line for three hours. It was like we had known each other all of our lives. By 11:30 p.m. I realized that I had to get off-line because we both had to go to work the next morning. But our connection was so strong, that after I got off-line, I called him on the phone and we spent another hour talking to each other. From the time we met, we were inseparable. Everyday we were either on the computer or talking on the phone. We talked about everything under the sun and the conversations were getting longer. Talking to him, I learned that we had a lot in common. I had gotten to the point where just talking to Derrick would make my heart melt. This made me realize that I had found my Prince Charming.
Derrick wanted us to meet in person right away, but I wanted to take a little more time to get to know him better. By the time we set a date to meet, we were already bonded by heart strings. Being that I was going on vacation soon, we set a date for him to come to Philadelphia on June 4th. When Derrick got off the train and came up the steps, I was even happier with the man who was standing in front of me than I was with the picture. While he was visiting with me, I just wanted time to stand still. Derrick is a very compassionate, thoughtful and caring man. We had such a good time together. When he left Philadelphia, I knew that this was the man for me and that I never wanted to let him go.
At first I was a little hesitant about joining BlackSingles.com, but now I am so glad that I did. I've finally met a man who makes me happy and makes my heart feel complete. Thanks BlackSingles.com for helping to bring us together.
