Hello 4-ch. I am a semi –lurker, occasionally posting my 2 cents on advice. But I generally roamed L&R for the stories. I am always interested in hearing people stories, especially when it comes to love. Call me a softy but it is interesting to learn about a fellow person life, especially when it comes to the matters of the heart. And again, I would post my little tidbits of advice in hopes the stories end up as happy ones. Occasionally there would be a happy ending but more times than not the board is filled with sadness and despair. So I figured I should post my story of love and happiness and maybe inspire others. Or at least maintain the hope that love still exist, even though it is elusive to catch.
But fate had other plans. The original driver had started an internship that summer and could not get off for the wedding. So literally the night before we left, we had a discussion if we could go or not. But luckily, one of us was able to obtain a car from their parents that weekend and we were able to go. Of course the new timing and all we left later than we wanted to and arrived in Detroit late afternoon/early evening. Most of the day was spent and we were tired from the trip. We joined a group from our university that had left the previous day and started to unpack. The other group told us about the bride’s bridal shower that was happening that night and how the bride’s family invited us to it. Since we were new to the town and have little knowledge of what is going on, they figured why not spend our time there. After a great debate, half of our group decided to attend the function while the other half just stayed at the hotel and rest. Naturally I decided to go because the competition already started, though one member from the party had to miss out. Another competitor decided to stay in at the hotel to rest, which I didn’t object to, more pootang for me.
I went to our dining table to pick something. This is after I scouted the room and took some pictures for myself. The table filled with mothers looking for their daughters was quickly filled up wit their daughters. And as I walked by, I met the two girls I met at the shower. This is where it started to pay off. I quickly started up a conversation and soon enough this girl from the other side of the table started to butt into our conversation. My first thought was, “this girl is rude, interrupting our conversation.” Little did I know, but she was the love of my life.
MOAR, OP, ME NEEDS MOAR!!
Yep, we are on a cliffhanger, here ^^
Must say, I know a lot of couples who got together after attending a friend's wedding. Seems to be a common theme (hint for those looking for girls/boys).
Thanks OP, cheered me up.
I've never had any luck with girls and my life has been pretty shit lately, but recently I got accepted by the top College in the state and things are looking up, this gave me some enouragement to approach girls when I get there.
I am sorry for leaving the story as a cliffhanger. Normally I would have pulled an all-nighter until I finished the story. I can no longer keep those college hours.
And >>6 is right. THis board is filled with a lot of negative stories and I feel like I should try to do that with my story. I am glad that it is working.
Slow day at work…
For the next few weeks we continued to talk and the amount of flirting intensified. It is interesting to look back at the old AIM logs and see how we flirted with each other. I remember I would test how far I could go with by slyly dropping compliments and calling her “babe” just to see if I could get away with it. And I did. What was most frustrating though that I could not see how well I was doing. Normally when I was flirting with girls, I was talking to them in person, face-to-face, so I could read their body language. But since this was long distance (7 hours driving), all I had based on my progress were “lol” and smilely faces.
We continued to talk over the summer and I found she was really interesting person. Her cockiness and bitchiness completely disappeared. She became very kind and caring and was generally interested in my well being. It is always nice to have someone care how my day was, hung up on the very little, insignificant little details of my life. Granted she did like me at this point, but I honestly felt like she was just a kind sweet person (she is actually, if you are on good terms with her. IF you wronged her she can be a complete bitch, but I am like that too). I became open to her as I did with her friend, probably even more so. I figured her motive was just to be friends. And since she was far away, there was no way she could spread my secrets among the people I know or she could harm me in anyway other than stop talking to me.
About a week later, school started up. And we continued to talk/flirt. She would pester me how I did not know what the prize was but I would say I did and tease her about it. I would sometimes say completely random stuff just to make her laugh. But since school started back up, my ex started to try to regain my attention. I completely ignored her that summer and she was trying to reform some sort of relationship, a friendship probably. But I was so use to not talking to her I just completely ignored her attempts and ending up pissing her off. She would send her friends telling me how she really didn’t care about the relationship and how it was just nothing to her. And I would be like so? And would just walk off not giving a shit. MY girl laugh at that and my roommate would tell me how my ex would keep referring to me as “the asshole.” But honestly, I defend my actions. I stopped caring about her over the summer and her expecting me to still care was just her being naïve and silly.
wow...this sounds just like my initial experience with my current girlfriend, except no weddings, no camp trips, and it was high school...not college. I wanna hear more!!!
This is sweet.
With luck, I should have something along the same lines to write in the next few weeks. Maybe someone should start a /love/ success stories thread?
Quick question, do people want to hear more?
Tell us more
sure.. how long has it been going on for?
any LD problems yet?
I thought the story was over but I figured more people wanted to hear more so here we go.
The first few weeks after we started “dating” went off well. We still talked normally, except now we would talk more on the phone verse internet. So much so, a lot of times my phone battery would die midway in our conversations. Of course I got in “trouble” for it. We would webcam a lot too and it was weird at first. Before our first webcam session this girl did not have a face, she was just a screenname, a voice. All I could see of her were stills from facebook pictures. But I didn’t realize or remember how cute her smile was, or how kind her eyes were, or just amazingly hot she was. Honestly, I stunned that I got a girl that hot.
We got done, went back to her place and popped a movie in the dvd player. For those of you who have been in relationships before, you never finish a movie, especially in the early parts of the relationship. We started to watch, but 15 minutes into it, it from my arm around her to my lips on her lips. The love between our hearts were burning on fire. She felt so good in my arms, her skin was so smooth. Her lips were so soft I made sure I was gentle when I kissed her. And every time I stared into her eyes, I felt like I was looking into her soul. I was in love and so was she. That night was an explosion of passion that built up from months of conversation filled with emotional and spirit. I was told from an older friend of mine, that love is a friendship on fire. Before that night, she was a good friend, great friend, my best friend, but our relationship lacked the physical intimacy; the passion. But that night, as we cuddled, naked, in her bed, I realized that this woman is the one for me, she is The One. I could feel the fire in my heart and I certainly could feel hers. I gave her a soft kiss and looked her deep in her eyes. Tears started to well up in her eyes and before I could say what was filling my heart, she said it first in a burst of tears. I held her close and tight. I tried to comfort her, as her tears subsided, and as we slowly drifted to sleep, I softly whispered, “I love you.”
wow.. congrats OP!
It sounded to so perfect I was wondering if I was reading some fanfic or something. So surreal.. so jealous.
Damn, one can only hope for experiencing something like that. That's fantastic, OP.
I just realized. My girlfriend would LOVE reading this on Valentine's Day.
Good god man, words can’t express the god like levels of motivation you have pumped into me. That has to be the most heart worming story have ever heard in my entire life. I demand it be made into a novel and then a movie. I almost cried reading this and I haven’t cried in several years. Good luck to you both.
Then show it to her. That's a really cute story, I hope you both realize the chance you have, and that you will work towards making the best out of it!
that's a great story...
but now that you're in a serious relationship >>1, how do u hope to maintain it effectively?
Thanks for the comments.
We maintain the relationship as we usually do. IM, webcam, phone and we try to make visits every now and then. But the relationship has been going great. Has it ups and it has it downs. As I said before she is a real firecracker and though she is "crazy" I am still not afraid of her.
sure we care!! share!!
I have hit writers block. So fuck it. I'll let my girl read what I have so far and let her give me some ideas about what to write about.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Tell us more! please please please!
Go write your own story! and make it actually happens for real.
It has been really busy for me lately, hopefully I can add another chapter soon. Just be patient ;)
Why should I write my own story? OP is already writing our story :)
OP here, gonna submit this before I get kicked out of this coffee shop.
And >>32 is my girlfriend. She loved this.
After I rubbed off my sore face she stared me down for a good 5 minutes waiting for something. I was like Hi, Hey, all of the normal greetings and salutations but nothing. Finally I just leaned in and give her a kiss on the check and BOOM she was her normal “crazy” self. I grabbed her stuff and placed them in my room and after we “caught up” we went out to eat. IT was Valentine’s and all of the fancy restaurants were booked. Plus we did not have the clothes or the money to be seen in one of those places. So we went to eat a greasy, hole in the wall burgar joint and had a rain check on our “official” Valentine’s date. I had a paper to write so rather getting to the lovely dovey and the cuddling business. We grabbed a stop in the library and worked until 3am working on my paper. She helped me out a lot. I was already spent from the day before so I was glad to have a fresh pair of eyes to look over my work.
After we were done with science olympiad we were just driving around, and she randomly pops up and was like, I want some fish and chips. I knew this one spot and we headed over there and had fish and chips for 10 between the 2 of us. And across the street was a little minigolf/go-kart/arcade fun land. And we were like, we have time, fuck it lets go. So we went, played some minigolf in the chill. We tied the game. She was trash talking me every hole. She got a hole in one on 17thhole, I got one on the 19th hole.
