Allow me to say it was quite a nontraditional, funny and a strike of LUCK story!!!
It's a story that we always enjoy sharing and re-telling whenever we meet NEW friends :)
It all started 16 years ago!!!
Yes that's how the STORY starts... My Idea was simple.... I was looking for an honest person...in a nontraditional way!!!
I know what you are probably thinking...remember I was 18!!
The rebellious era in which you have to prove a point because YOU think you know it all!! I was determined and positively sure of what I was about to do...and so I entered the world of online chatting!!!
I just wanted a friend, someone I can easily talk to, to have fun with and enjoy being ME... yet someone who won't be rude and interested in 1 thing!! Sadly I saw worse guys online compared to those I previously met!!! Till 1 day a window popped up on my screen and this GUY started chatting with me....
HE was interested in talking, in having REAL conversations!!
He even asked me about my DREAMS!!!
I was amused, excited, and super interested in chatting with him...
I use to look forward for our time as we would chat for hours and about many things, and with everyday I LIKED him more....
so imagine my surprise when...
* 1 day I was sitting on 1 of the PCs and I saw his log in name!!! First I thought it's a pure coincidence....Silly me right?!
I thought "Waw...what are the ODDS that all this time 2 strangers were chatting together under the same roof'!!!
** my double surprise was when I learned then that he actually works as a part timer in that cafe!!!
*** ADD UP HE picked ME!!!
YES!!! For an entire month.... he had a face to the name he was chatting with and I had no idea whom I'm chatting with!! I freaked out on him and felt abused once again for I really liked him for him!!!
I hated myself for being this shallow, and I was pulling myself up to go formerly introduce myself to him, then out of no where my chat guy popped up out and walked straight up to me..he was wearing a red t-shirt and he looked super duper shy!!
(unless that was his t-shirt that was reflecting tremendously on his face!!)
It was a weird and awkward moment!! We had no idea what to say to each other, so we went back to chatting instead!!(it was easier than face-to-face)
Then I confronted him for holding back his identity from me all this time & his reply was: "because I was too shy and worried You wouldn't like ME"....
He approached me on the chat room because he fell in love with my big eyes, watching my reaction to other people's lame chat was inquisitive to him to chat with me!!(that will remain his story!!) but that was All what IT took to keep the dice rolling...
Endless hours on the phone, lots of chat hours, we even did long distance when he had to travel for work!! We had many Ups and downs....Entire family was against this relationship for lots and lots of reasons...and we even broke up!!
I was 25 and he was 27.. we were still KIDS to many (we even had fights like ones..)
YET we were extremely excited to start another Totally NEW Chapter in our LOVE BOOK!
I really tried hard to pick 1 of the dates for celebration... but I couldn't!
Each date got a different sentimental feeling, experience, a flavor, and a unique memory :) Yet no worries....for after 2 kids and being together for 16 years we stopped throwing an actual celebration!!!
Not to mention, can you imagine the total # of celebrations, birthdays, and anniversaries we shared!! Recently we started going out on a Family weekend getaway and if possible we get to enjoy a simple homemade dinner and cake at home :)
and this is the story How I met my Husband...
my best friend, my secret confider, my partner, the father of my 2 adorable angels, and above all my better half or my 1/2 demon (depends on the situation)!!!
We shared a lot, been through a lot, hated each other a lot!!
Together WE created lots and lots of amazing memories...
we started a FAMILY!!! with every New day we are learning (in-spite all our arguments, disagreements and fights..) on how to raise our children in the best way possible..how to keep this family bonded and above all how to keep US moving on hand in hand!!!
In summary...we are still filling out the Chapters of our BOOK in our OWN WAY and STYLE!
Wishing my dearest beloved Hubby... and all of you a
