Yep, it really has been a year. It seems a little like a lucid dream but its all so real (especially since we’ve got money invested). I have to admit that even I was a skeptic at first. I mean really, a long distance (7,000 miles to be exact) relationship with someone I met on the internet? For a while I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then we had a few arguments and started talking about the future and things became more and more real.

The only thing that was really making things hard was the distance. Hell, that’s a pretty big deal, I’d say. And as time went on and the yearning to be in his presence grew deeper, I decided that I couldn’t go beyond a year in the relationship without at least a visit.

So David and I talked about it and began saving money (Yes we both saved. What a bitch I’d be to ask him to fly 7k miles and not even be willing to pay half of his nearly $800 air fare?) and he promised that by the time our one year anniversary came, we would meet.

Well, our anniversary was two days ago, but not to worry, we shall meet in person next Thursday and spend two wonderful weeks together.

Am I nervous? Hell yeah!

Am I excited? Are you freakin’ kidding me?

I don’t know that I’ve ever been more nervous or excited about anything.

So there you have it.

5 days…
