Today I am sharing a lovely story of two people who met on AOL personals, but by complete accident as Crystal was online trying to help a friend find a guy. When Crystal happened upon David’s ad she thought he was cute and upon being dared by her friend to contact him, she did.
After a month of talking online and over the phone Crystal met David in person. Living about forty-five minutes away from each other the meet was an easy commute. Within nine months they had started planning their wedding, when they found out a nice surprise – they were pregnant! Five months later they were wed and the rest is history!
Since becoming pregnant with their first born, Crystal and David have welcomed another child into their family and are celebrating 13 years together, 12 years of which they have been married.
When I asked if David is the romantic type and what is the most romantic thing he has ever done, Crystal replied, “He is always surprising me with cards or flowers or little gifts/trinkets. His timing is always right and he gives me a little pick me up card or gift (sometimes even cooking my favorite foods!) when I am feeling down or just need to smile. He’s awesome that way!”
This is a true love story based on a simple dare between friends. Ah, I can feel the love in the air.
