The beginning.

Last September (2004) I drove over 300 miles from Cleveland, Ohio, to a small town near Allentown, Pa. to attend a concert headlining my favorite singer, Chuck Negron, the former lead singer from Three Dog Night. The concert was postponed until the next day, a Sunday, due to the outdoor facility being damaged extensively by a bad storm on Friday night. Disappointed, I turned around and went home. I couldn't stay, due to job responsibilities.

On Sunday, I went to a festival about an hour outside of Cleveland, which I would not have been at, had this concert not have been canceled. At this festival, I ran into a friend who introduced me to his girlfriend (now his fiance) who he met on this website. He said I should give it a try. I never thought I would resort to meeting someone online.

About two weeks later I read a profile from someone who sounded interesting, and sent her a mingle mail. A few hours later, she responded, and I responded to her response. (her user name was "justdoit" for anyone who may remember her). A few days later, we exchanged phone numbers, and about a week later we met for the first time. Now, we are almost inseparable. It's so incredible to me that on a world-wide website I met someone so wonderful that only lives 15 minutes from me. I thought these kind of things only happened in fairy tales. In some ways, our time together is like a fairy tale, especially when we share our dreams of "happily ever after".

Dear Bev, Happy Valentine's Day. I love you.
