Wedding Anniversary #2

Wedding Anniversary #2

I think every single TV show has featured an episode about online relationships gone terribly wrong but none with a happy ending. Yes, You’ve Got Mail has a happy ending but it’s a movie, not a TV show. I remember seeing the movie with a couple of friends from work. We had to sit on the front row because those were the only seats available. All of the other seats had been taken. While the storyline was not very realistic, the three of us enjoyed the movie. Can’t say that we found it very inspiring, but who would’ve thought that out of us three, two would actually find love on the Internet later on. True story! My friend married someone she met through ICQ and the last time I heard from her, she already had a baby. The other person is, of course, me. I travelled halfway around the world to meet Troy, one of the most frequent commenters on my blog, and an all-around good guy, and married him a year later.

Today is the 3rd anniversary of our first real-life meeting and the 2nd anniversary of our wedding. We’re still happily married and I still let Troy tell our story to anyone who cares enough to ask about how we met because my story would be too long-winded (since I wouldn’t be able too leave out all the gory details) and full of ‘Net lingo. My favourite response from people to whom we just told our story is “good to hear a happy story coming from people who met through the Internet.” I usually just smile in response but the little voice in my heart thanks Troy for not turning up to be one of those creepy guys you see on Dateline. :)

Happy anniversary to us!

I say happy 2nd and 3rd anniversary to you then Firda and Troy. Seldom can you see couples who maintain their sweetness after several years of being married. These anniversaries should be marked as an achievement for the two of you.
I wish you more anniversaries to come. And I wish that you can post pictures of you little babes here soon, too.

This internet thing is great isn’t it? ;¬)

It’s heartbreaking to realise that when you wrote this entry, my mother – the LIGHT of my life – was still alive and well and loving me more than anyone in the world… The date of your next entry was the date of her funeral. I didn’t go, of course. I loved her much too much for that. Why would I go? I don’t want consolation from anyone, LEAST of all from people who loved her (of course, she was the most lovable creature in the world), but not REALLY, and din’t even know her – not REALLY, not like… Read more »

This is very delayed, but every time I think about your love-story it makes me happy, and very happy for you two. I read both your blog and Troy’s blog before you two got together, and when you did it all just seemed like such a sweet story. Congratulations on your 2nd wedding anniversary and 3rd meeting-in-person anniversary.
