Subject: RE: BS: Cyber Relationships. are there a lot?
My husband and I met online. Neither of us had ever gone on a site before. I had only just bought a computer. We met on Cafe Tropic, an International meeting site. and I was merely looking for international friends of both sexes, even families, to learn about other countries. I got 47 replies, and for some reason, I connected up with Ib. He's black, I'm white. He's a Muslim, I'm a Christian, he's much younger than me. He speaks no English, I don't speak Malinke. But we communicated in French. I've travelled all over West Africa, so we decided to meet up in Accra on my trip to Ghana. I paid for his first flight ever. He was terrified of the plane, had never seen a flushing toilet, never been in a hotel. (He'd flown from Abidjan, Ivory Coast) But from our first sight of eachother at Accra airport, we just 'knew'. Our marriage is a very happy one, and we sincerely believe it was meant to be. We're still amazed at how all this came about, and very thankful!
