*S* nice idea kristin...and thanks for sharing your story. seems in a lot of ways, your life has turned around!
married! 3rd time...finally happy. before coming into this relationship, i felt dead...the proverbial "is this all there is?"
i met my now husband on the internet. i was married at the time, and was not looking, thought i was happy .... nor was the person i was talking to looking(he had sworn off of relationships) *shrug*. but in talking to my new friend, i realized i wasn't happy and i decided alone was better then being lonely with someone...so divorce #2 happened. it was just a leap of faith for me that the universe would take me to where i needed to be..
after my divorce, we decided to meet. we had an age difference of 18 years. we were from different continents...but some things one just has to follow through on with just faith. we hit it off as well in person, as we did on the internet. the love was timeless...it was before, it will always be. for the first time...we were "home" again. the relationship was long distance for 2 year, this past september he immigrated to the states, we were married in october. i don't think either of us has ever been happier..
summary...follow your heart, don't settle, dreams can come true
