Katy and Dominic

Our Success Story

I had an account with OkCupid since March of 2009 before I met Dominic. I had dated a few guys here & there, as well as became friends with a few people, but never clicked with anyone. Then, on November 9, 2009, I came across Dominic's profile. I was like, "Hm, this looks like a nice guy." So, I sent him a "Wink." I noticed that he lived about 110 miles from me & I thought to myself, "We'll only be friends, nothing more. We live too far away from each other." I truly didn't think anything would come of this, other than just another friendship. Maybe chat online, text & talk to each other on the phone. Boy, was I wrong! First, we did start out as friends. But then, the friendship quickly turned into something more. We started realizing just how much we had in commom & we believed in alot of the same things. Our friendship soon became a relationship. Within 3 weeks of the first Wink, we were already saying "I love you" to each other, and we hadn't even met in person yet! On November 21, 2009, Dominic made the 110 mile trip from Clovis, NM to Amarillo, TX. We were both so nervous! We wanted everything to be just perfect. I met him on the outskirts of town in the parking lot of a movie theater. I parked my car next to his & got out. I ran & jumped into his arms & we sealed our love with our first kiss! It was freezing outside, but I didn't feel anything but the warmth of his arms & the fire of his kiss. It was one of the most passionate kisses I had ever experienced. The rest of the weekend was bliss. I introduced Dominic to my family & friends & they all just loved him. Actually, Dominic is the first guy I had ever been with that my sister actually liked & approved of! The next month was torture. We were so in love, but Dominic had to go back to Clovis & I had to continue my life in Amarillo. We continued to talk & text, our relationship only getting stronger. Then, one day in December, I made a major decision. I put my 2 weeks notice in to the job that I had for 3 years & decided to move to Clovis to be with Dominic. This was very scary for me because I was born & raised in Amarillo, TX & I had never lived anywhere but there. I just thought, I was born there, raised there, lived there...I figured I would die there. I was very sad to leave all of my friends & family, but I felt as though this was something I had to do. So, over the next couple of weeks, I started to pack up my house. My last day at my job was on December 18, 2009. It was a very sad, tear filled day, but everyone wished me the best of luck. Dominic made another trip to Amarillo & helped me finish packing. We put most of my things in storage & took what I needed with us. On December 22, 2009, I started my new life in Clovis, NM. Its been a crazy ride since we first met, but our love & bond gets stronger & deeper as each day goes by. Its been 9 months since this adventure started. On August 6, 2010, Dominic & I became husband & wife!! I look back on these past few months & it just blows my mind! I'm still in shock that all this is happening to me! I'm afraid I'm going to wake up one day & its all just a dream. I never thought love could be like this. I'm so happy to call him my husband. We have so many plans & goals that we want to accomplish in life & I know we will. I can see it in our future. So, that, in a nutshell, is our success story!
