Where I met my partner?

We were school mates in an all girls high school but never really got close. We had this one summer when we became good friends though. She would visit me at home everyday and we would talk for hours. I knew we were both attracted with each other, but we couldn't do anything about it. We were both in serious relationships at that time (well, at least the kind of serious relationship that one expects from teens) so we chose to remain friends. But through the years, although we were apart, we never really stopped thinking about each other.

How we fell in love

In late 2009, I was in a troubled marriage while she was in a relationship with a girl for 5 years, when we got in touch via email. Since my relationship with my high school partner fell apart many years ago, I never had another relationship with a girl. I knew I was straight. I got married, had kids, and things seemed ok on the outside, but I knew something was always missing, yet I don't know what it was. My marriage had a lot of ups and downs, but I thought that was normal. Then in 2008, things started going downhill. In 2009, my ex partner (the one from HS) got in touch with me and for a while I got confused. There was no one I could talk to, and I needed my feelings evaluated by someone who understands. And that's when I once again remembered her. I got in touch with her, and surprisingly, with our first emails to each other, something was already different. We would spend hours a day emailing each other, then we started chatting and eventually talked online via yahoo. Before we knew it we were deeply in love and we had to tell each other how we felt. She left her partner then, but I stayed married since I have kids. But that didn't stop her and me from pursuing a relationship. I went to her (she's in another country now) for a month, and it was the best month of our lives. Going back home was the hardest thing for me, and I knew I couldn't bear to be away from her for long. We have been together for 8 months now, though it feels like years already, and we're ready to take the next step. I plan to end my marriage soon, and she and I are making plans for our future. Whatever comes our way, I know in my heart that with her is where I truly belong, and I could never ever deny that. She is truly the missing piece in my life, and that was what I immediately realized the moment we got in touch via email again.

Advice

  • You can never deny what is truly in your heart. Never be afraid to take risks... what is truly meant for you waits no matter how long it takes, and once you have it, everything falls in its proper place...
