We are beyond excited about our upcoming wedding Saturday. I never thought this day would come to be honest.
I wasn’t going to get married unless I was crazy about the guy, and I had doubts I would ever find him. However, I found my best friend, my soul-mate, my one true love.
As crazy as it seems we met on an online dating site and from there we talked endlessly, texted, skyped, emailed, sent videos, had date skype night, sent poems, cards, presents. We spent three months getting to know each other before we took our big step to see each other in person.
I had been living in Buffalo at the time so he flew out to see me. From the second I opened the door it was love, love that I had already felt before he came. Instantly, we connected it was as if we had known each other always. I felt completely safe with him, and I knew that this would be the man I would marry, I just knew it.
Fast forward 3 ½ years and Saturday June 21 we’re getting married. I’ve never been happier nor have I ever felt such joy as this love. Bryan treats me like a queen every day. He’s considerate of my feelings and is honest and down to earth. He’s very romantic and above all, he loves me just the way I am.
Think the best thing about us is we don’t pretend to be something we’re not. We have similar interests but then we have other interests where we try to find a way to embrace for the other which is important.
I find that the fact that we’re both disabled in different ways brings us somewhat closer, but it’s not why we fell in love, it’s not why we’re getting married. We’re getting married because we honor, respect and love each other.
It’s never too late to find your true love. I was in my late 30’s when I met Bryan.
If I can give one tip to finding your soul-mate it would be to have confidence in yourself and respect yourself. Don’t settle for anything less than you deserve. Guys respect women who have confidence. It's the same with women- we tend to go for the guy who has confidence and self-esteem.
Stay away from the bad boys or the bad girls, you’re just asking for trouble. Be completely honest about your disability/challenges whatever they may be. Don’t hide anything but at the same time don’t just throw it all out there the first time you meet either.
We decided early on that we would be completely honest about our limitations and it brought us closer. If it doesn’t bring you closer then that person isn’t for you.
Hope you enjoyed our little tale of True Love!!! I pray that everyone finds it.
I’m off to finish wedding details!
