Yes, I moved to the other side of the world And another hemisphere to boot. It was all for my partner Kev. Many questions went through my head before this move, believe me. I thought to myself what if he is like those scammers and he was not as he appears in his photos online. I wanted to research him, his name, his address, was he truly from the country he said he was, and so many more questions I felt were important at the time.
I did do my research, asking pertinent questions and seeing him on a webcam and speaking to him on the phone. Something in my heart and head told me, this guy is for real. Dating in my little town everyone knew who was dating whom. I wanted to venture out to a relationship that I felt would compliment my life. I was going to make a decision. Would it be the right one? I did not do much thinking about the "consequences" of moving to another country or the trials we would have to go through, I just wanted to go into this relationship with open arms and something in my heart told me: He is the one.
Kev came to visit me after only chatting with him for only 3 1/2 months. I know what you are thinking, what?!?! How did you know after such a short time it would be a good idea or safe to have a "stranger" come and visit you in America? Honestly there was a small hint of uncertainty but it was far outweighed by the fact that I just felt he was my soulmate. The way we spoke to each other, the caring words expressed and learning so much about him in such a short time. I thought life is too short!
I remember the night that I drove 3 hours to New York to pick him up at the JFK airport. I got lost unfortunately and was about 1 1/2 hours late. As I pulled up to the airport there was only one car in sight, an airport worker and Kev. I was so excited and also a bit embarrassed for being so late. I just parked the car with the hazard lights on and jumped out of the car. He had that gorgeous smile I had seen so many times before in pictures and while we chatted online. I had butterflies of excitement and just hugged him. He picked me up in the air and twirled me around in such an embrace. I will never forget it, it is embedded in my memory forever. We looked each other in the eyes as if we had been away from each other for years and he kissed me. I felt like new life had been breathed into me and the whole world was so perfect, sublime....
My story continues, thank you for letting me share this with you. Namaste, Luna
