Anna & Adam
Married on 12/27/2008
I met Adam on MyYearbook.com (it's now called meetme.com) February 2008, I joined that site because this guy who was trying to get with me would send me surveys on myspace and it was so much easier to do the surveys if you made an account on the website they were from. So I made the account and one of the things the website was famous for was battles, picture battles amongst strangers (best smile, who's hotter, best ride...etc etc) well you can vote for as many battles as you want, even if you don't know either of the contestants. I was browsing through them and a best smile match up popped up, I was instantly drawn in and attracted to the guy. He had the most amazing hazel eyes and a killer smile to match. I clicked on his profile and found out he was a Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan. This was comical to me because at that time I was an Army Soldier stationed in San Antonio, TX. I ended up buying him a virtual gift: a dinner
and he sent me a virtual gift too, a penguin...I love penguins but he didn't know that at the time, along with his gift there was a message: "In real life it would be I who took you out to dinner" from that day on we talked almost everyday, we added each other on myspace and messenger, eventually we started skyping and talking on the phone. We met in person June 2009, did I mention that he is from Texas?
he was coming home on leave for his sister's wedding and asked me to be his date...his sister ended up eloping and I thought I would never get to see him since he had no reason to come meet me anymore, but he ended up driving from his hometown to San Antonio (a 6-7 hour drive) and we drove back to his hometown...I met his family and spent the next 3 weekends with him. He then flew back to Okinawa and I went back to my military base. We didn't know if we were ever going to see each other again, specially since I was scheduled to be stationed in Germany in the next couple of months. But in August of 2008 I found out I was pregnant...He proposed in October. Came back from Okinawa got stationed in North Carolina, still a couple of states away from me. We got married in December and I left the Army in February 09. We're now both out of the military and live in his hometown. We have 3 beautiful children. And more in love than when we first met.
