OK well, I met my wonderful boyfriend here on AO three years ago this summer. I noticed one reply to a thread in the vault - Your Dream Date. Since then, we talked constantly over PM's for months and then IM when he was bored at school etc. We talked about anything from Christian music to hobbies. All the things you talk about when you meet a new friend.
Then it was till about almost 20 months ago, that we started dating. Being best friends for about a year, we had helped each other through a lot and supported each other. Until I told him I really fancied him and said he felt the same. It was a natural progression, we are really close and we always want to support each other and we knew where we stood so it was just obvious to us and everyone else around us to stop flirting and just start dating. I haven't and won't look back. I love my boyfriend sooooooooo much that we are going to live together and get married.
