Internet is a Blessing

I am so thankful that   Internet existed.  I don't think I would  have  met my husband without it.    The student assistant  at the  Student Affairs Office  introduced me to an online dating site.    She was the one who  created my account/profile as I was very busy back then writing my thesis.

At the last hour of the  free trial for my account, this US Navy guy  sent me a  message and that was the start.  We communicated for  almost six months, got to know each other through chat and phone calls.  Then on March 22, 2003, he decided to visit my country  and met me in person for the first time.

Six months after   his first visit, he came back and we got married and the rest is history.  Internet is a really a blessing for me, I am now married for almost ten years and have two  precious children.
I couldn't imagine my life without Internet.  It is part of my love story.  Here's a photo of me and my husband during our first "real date".

So glad I gave  an online dating a try.  Look what I could have missed if I didn't..   Thanks to my  angel "Ruth" for hooking me a up.

  12. i agree with you mommy, i couldn't imagine myself either without internet. It makes everyone's life so much easier. I find internet to be useful in all different ways and I must admit, I would be so bored without internet at home. I rather have it than cable or cellphone.

  17. Lovely lovestory, Rose! You can save that for L! ;)
    How is your little daughter? I hope she is better now.
    Thanks for your comment on IWD. It's still far away from a good life for many women in Africa and Asia, who are considered to be their husband's property. Fortunately you and we have better husbands.

  19. I agree with you ! I couldn't imagine my life without internet anymore and I only started in 2006 but it is never too late ! That's nice that you found each other through Internet, that's the modern way of meeting ! I know several couples who met this way, and only a few who really had no chance with the guy !
    What a cute couple you were ! (and still are, lol) !

  21. How nice that the Internet is proved once more a force for positive changes in the world. I know two pastors and several others who met through the Internet - if they didn't hit it off, it seemed mutual, but once they found real love and shared values, they were and are so happy. Your children are adorable and you look very content. Congrats. Amy

  23. You and your hubby are a true testament that online dating works. I used to work in online dating site and I've seen and talked to many people who've gotten together through us and are happy with each other. Some are not so lucky. So happy you're one of the lucky ones! Yes, indeed, internet is a blessing!
