Where do I start? I guess the beginning is always the best as it will tell you our story.
We both went through hard times in our lives and we both were ready to give up and write our stories alone when we were introduced by friends and family. Wow! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw her. How can someone be just so outrageously beautiful? We chatted a little now and then. I knew this lady was special. A one of her kind. I messaged her on her birthday and we just clicked. It was comfortable like we’ve know each other our whole lives. We didn't have to pretend to be any one else but ourselves and chatted every day.
She was so much more than I thought. I asked her out on a date which was called a meet and great hahaha. From there I knew that she was the one. Our plans for the future and our goals were the same and we wanted the same things.
This amazing lady then introduced me to her most precious person Lailah her daughter and I fell in love again and I thought now I get to love two ladies. I must be the luckiest guy alive, getting two hellos two kisses two hugs two I love you's and I get to love them both, I am the luckiest person alive.
We were together for 5 months and I knew that I had to spend the rest of my life with this lady so I went down on one knee and asked her to marry me. This was the greatest day of my life. We have done a lot together as a family. We went on dates, year-end function, family functions, birthdays, celebrated Christmas and New Year’s. We have gone through the pressures of buying a place together and we just got stronger and our love grows every day, true love is the greatest adventure.
On the 4th of August or story turns into a never ending story - a book with no ending, I have got my one, my today and all of my tomorrows, my life partner my forever.
Our Story…. Everything happened so fast, and we never expected to be where we are now in such a short period.
It’s so amazing how you can fall in love and just know that’s the person you will be spending forever with. We met for the first time through family and friends @ Gino’s, let’s just say there was a spark from day one, even though you wouldn’t have said so on the evening. We sat next to each other not saying a word, and later gave each other a hug goodbye. “Nice meeting you, hope to see you soon” Gary responded.
At that stage I never expected anything to blossom from that evening. Few months later I received a Happy Birthday message via Facebook, Gary’s way of getting to speak to me. Let’s just say I wasn’t the easiest to “Flirt with”, but I eventually let my guard down, as I knew I had something special in front of me.
We were engaged within 5 months of dating, (Yes I know, people were like, wow, So quick), we just smiled and said, “When you know, you know”. I never expected such a fast proposal, but that day took my breath away, and I wish I could repeat and live that moment again.
For me it wasn’t about finding someone to spend the rest of my life, It was finding someone that will accept me, and not want to change me, and love me for all my imperfections, and of course accept Lailah (as she is my universe), Someone that wouldn’t make me choose between my universe and being loved. With Gary I got the whole Package, There is no pretending, just us being real and true, and the most important for me, and I get to include Lailah in Happiness that she also deserves.
I am so excited for our Journey ahead, we have accomplished so much already, and I know it can only get better. I have my Fairy Tale ending.
You can be in a relationship for 2 years and feel nothing. You can be in a relationship for 2 months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of Quality; Infatuation or Love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
