Before I met Steve, I had been in and out of two long term relationships. It took a lot of guts, but I had broken up with my previous boyfriend of five years to explore my feelings. After I had broken up with my ex, I was participating in some weird on-line relationships. Needless to say, that didn't work out...it was just an experience, that was all. For the most part, I found that (as in any community) the on-line community was filled with people who are good people and people who are not so good.
I had made a lot of online friends over the years and one of them was Steve. Out of all of the people that I talked to, Steve was the only person that I had a genuine respect for. Aside from the fact that we shared the same interests, I saw that he had a lot more to offer as a person. He is the most intelligent person that I had ever met in my life.

We did, however, keep on talking as friends just about every night. Eventually it came to the point where every day I looked forward to coming home and telling him about my day, which lead me to start feeling that I really did want him in my life as more than just a friend. It was about a year after our first meeting that we started a serious relationship together. Steve was so different than anybody else that I had ever been with. He opened my eyes to new experiences, and I came to realize that we had so much in common.
A year after we had been together, I moved in with Steve. After a year of living with him, he proposed to me in the restaurant that we went to on our first date and I said ‘yes’. We were married on April 2nd, 2011 in
