Iris and Garrett
I was browsing OKC and I got an instant message from a guy a few hundred miles away. I recognized his profile as I had stumbled across it a few times and never said anything. At first, I ignored his messages as I read his profile and he didn't really seem like my "type." I didn't really think a whole lot about it because I wasn't interested in having another long-distance relationship. After a few days, when he kept messaging me, I finally decided to respond. I hated how persistant he was in the beginning about getting me to talk. Our conversations were slow at first and soon graduated from IMs to phone calls.
We would talk on the phone for hours about the most random and mundane things and the time would fly by so quickly. After exchanging flirtatious conversations on the phone, he convinced me to visit. We both made our intentions known and were both completely falling for each-other.
I met him the night he had orientation for the police academy so he was dressed superbly. I couldn't take my eyes (or hands) off of him! A few months later, he took me to pick out my engagement ring. Since then, we have been completely inseparable.
I couldn't have asked for a better partner, friend, and lover. He is perfect for me in every way and I am lucky he was so persistent in getting what he wanted. I tell him I love him every day and am thankful he is in my life. I cannot wait to grow old with this man. Thanks OkC!
