I Loved Her From The First Day

It was about 4am, we both were up and online due to boredom and issues in our lives at that point. I messaged her just to tell her she was beautiful which led to a three hour online conversation on AIM. We exchanged phone numbers and talked for a few more hours the next day. She'd never had a guy ask her out before and she got scared when she realized that I loved her for her not what I wanted her to be. She just didn't know how to react to it. She prayed about it, and then broke up with me. The six weeks that were not officially dating were absolutely the worst six weeks of both of our lives. We were both pursuing other people and it just wasn't working out. Finally we got back together in March of 2006, I moved in with her and her parents in July 2006, and we were married October 5th 2007. We'll be married three years this year and I can't believe how fast it's gone, and at the same time it feels like a lifetime. I can't remember a time when I didn't have her to talk to. I loved her from the first day. I can even remember telling myself "You can't fall for this one she's too far away.", but It was already too late. At that time it was a 90 mile drive and took about 2 hours one way to see her. Looking back it was so totally worth it, that I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat if it mean I could be this happy with someone forever.
