I've met a lot of people on the internet. Despite the horror stories you hear in the media, I don't believe I've ever met anyone here who was a really bad person. On the contrary, I've met so many people of different cultures, races, religions, from all around the world, and they've all been people -- good people, and more like each other than not.
But Emily is special, and she's the one who captured my heart. In October I went down to visit her, and this coming Saturday I'm getting the best Christmas present of all: I'm traveling down to Missouri again, but this time I'm bringing her back with me for the winter. I'm getting strangexgirl for Christmas! Giftwrapping not required. :-) Emily, we've known each other for a year and a half. Despite our age difference and living two states away, I'm constantly amazed at how much we're alike, how many interests we share, and how a somewhat cynical middle aged guy like me can find love again, and be loved in return. Here's to having many more holidays together.
