After a rash of meeting the wrong guy, I signed on to ldsso. Feeling that
nice guys shouldn't finish last and the strong desire to meet a truly nice
guy, I listed that in my profile as a must. I was working for a airline at
the time and my screen name was "flygirl". It was either the first or
second day that I was online that "heloflynguy" claimed to be a nice guy
from Florida. He is a helocopter pilot for the US Navy. We started sending
messages back and forth on ldsso and then he asked for my phone number. I
really didn't think that he would call long distance and was surprised when
he first called. After a little over a month of sending emails and talking
on the phone, the day finally came to meet. I flew out to Florida (thank
goodness I worked for an airline because the flights were free) and we meet.
It was an all day date that started out with him meeting me at the airport
with a rose. Then a tour of the city, lunch and a walk on the beach. Then
feeding turtles at a pond and lots of talking. We finished the night with
dinner and a drive back to the airport. When it came time to leave, he gave
me hug and I didn't want the night to end. After that night we spent as
much time together or on the phone as we could (and our phone bill would
allow.) We were engaged 3 1/2 months later and married in the Jordan River
temple 4 months after that. We have had a fun time telling people our
story. Never would either of us have imagined that we would meet our
eternal companions online. But we never would have met any other way.
Thank you so much. We are so incredibly happy and we thank you for helping
make it possible.
