My friend had sent an IM to me,very unexpectedly, on a whim, he recalled. He said he'd noticed my photo, and read my profile and became interested. We started talking...for quite some time,2 months or so, discovering our likes and dislikes, hobbies, etc, before we met. He came to my house on his birthday,- we went to a great Chinese restaurant -had a wonderful dinner; more talking, lots of laughs, etc. We practically closed down the place, we stayed so long....!
We found we had many things in common, but we also celebrated our differences, too. I have learned much from him, and our relationship has grown since then, and we've become very close. We feel we were both very lucky to have found each other.
