I posted a comment in a certain thread and in doing so, I flirted with the most gorgeous man I had ever seen. To my delight, he flirted back. The flirting in the threads carried into pm. We talked via pm everyday until he went on a trip. I couldn't wait for him to get back. When he did get back, we picked up right where we left off. We mentioned talking on the phone but neither of us came out and asked for the other's number. I finally gave him mine and he called. I still remember that first phone conversation, I was so nervous but I found him so easy to talk to. Between pm, email, text messages, phone conversations, we got to know each other. We spent hours and hours just talking, never running out of things to say. Without ever meeting face to face, I fell in love. He did too. The day finally came and he asked me to join him on a trip. He still doesn't know this but I was so excited, I cried tears of joy. I was finally going to meet this man I had spent so much time talking to, getting to know, and falling in love with. That first meeting led to many others. As many as time would allow. As we have for nearly a year, we still talk everyday, sometimes all day. We still never run out of things to say. No matter how much time we spend together, it's never enough. When my phone rings and I see his name, my heart jumps with excitement. He's the most amazing person I've ever met. He loves me with all his heart and he makes sure I know that. We have this connection that I didn't know could exist. We are always thinking of each other and I swear, I can feel what he's thinking, even from 1,000 miles away. Even though we live 1,000 miles apart, we made a commitment to each other. We are making plans to be together and make our relationship permanent. So, one post changed the course of my life in a way I never would have dreamed and I couldn't be happier. I love you Rico, more than I can express in words. This past year has been the happiest of my life and that has everything to do with you. I should be packing for our trip this weekend but I wanted to do this first. I can't wait to see you this weekend and celebrate our first year. Te amo Papi.
