In 40 days we’ll be spending out first “Christmas” together (it’s between the 29/11 and 7/12, but well be having an early Christmas together)! A lot’s happened since I came back to England last summer and I can’t wait to finally get back for a bit and be with the girl I love, meeting her dog and trying all the baked Christmas stuff and watching the Danish advent calendars on TV for a bit. Just 40 days left! Getting closer!
I’ve seen a lot of people feeling a bit ashamed of how they met their love over the internet. I’ve seen people ask others if “it’s okay” to having met their love on this website or this website. And I just want to reassure you, it’s perfectly fine.
Whether you met them on “normal” places like Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook. Or if you met them through a World of Warcraft server, an anime chat room, a forum for fish lovers, Omegle, anything really. It’s perfectly fine.
I was embarrassed about how I met Sean once. I felt judged when I explained I met him through a game on the PlayStation 3. Some people don’t take things like that very nice. But do you know what? It’s not us there’s something wrong with. It’s them.
Yes you found love in an unusual place. Finding your love on the internet is still a bit weird, even in 2014. But there’s nothing wrong with it. Not everyone finds their soulmate randomly at school, work, at a friend’s party. And it’s okay.
I got over my little phase of being embarrassed about Sean and my story. I’m proud now to have met him in this weird place. Because it’s different. It’s not a story you hear every day.
And that’s why you should be proud too. If you decide to have kids one day, I bet you they would love how their parents met in such a strange way.
You don’t need to be embarrassed, because it’s perfectly fine. And if people say it’s not perfectly fine, screw them. Screw them.
Spending Saturday night helping Sean writing packing list and meal suggestions. My boy is growing up so fast! I think it also helps me coping with the thought. I’m a part of the process of him moving away from home for a year, moving even further away from me. But aw yis, I’m doing good as a girlfriend tonight!
