Charmed Over a Chat...By Katy   4/27/2010
December 13th 2009 - who says 13 is an unlucky number?
I had recently come back from a late night family Christmas party. I don't know what made me log on that night but it would turn out to be the best night of my life. I used this chat site and I logged on and joined a less populated room and I started talking to the boys in the room; I get along better with guys. This guy, Teddy, started chatting with me and he seemed interesting and really sweet. I stopped paying attention to the rest of the people in the room and after a couple of hours I gave him my email address. He told me his real name was Stephan and he lived in Tennessee. We learned more about each other as the night went on and before we realized it, it was 7 am and he told me he loved me.
I had the largest butterflies in my stomach and I thought I'd cry out of pure joy. His exact words were "umm lol i love you." I fell head over heels for him, he was so much better than anything I had ever imagined or wanted. He's charming, good looking, sweet, funny, smart...he means the world to me.
When I went to bed that early morning, and this is something he doesn't know, I couldn't sleep I had to pinch myself to make it real and even then I thought this was some trick of my imagination. I also fell asleep with my computer open on the picture that he had sent me, I kept thinking, how did he fall for me? He's way out of my league! Those were temporary thoughts and I deserve him, he deserves me.
So after that wonderful night we've talked almost every day since then, we've had a couple rough patches but we worked through them and our love is stronger than ever. We talk about our future, kids, marriage, what our life will be like. We are 18 and I know that having this feeling every minute of every day is worth so much that I will never give it up. We've both spent the past four months giving up sleep and talking to each other mostly every night, we use the phone, and skype all the time. Every time I see his smile my heart beats faster and its all I can do to stop imagining me kissing him.
Recently he told his family about me, not too many details but I was shocked and my heart did backflips. I was really happy that he wanted his family to know about me. Everything he says to me I know is true.
Right now I am planning a road trip to meet him and both of us can't wait. Every night after I say goodnight to him I lay in bed and think about how much my life has changed with him in it and how much better it will continue to be. I fall asleep every night imagining me laying on my side and him laying facing my back with his arm wrapped tightly around my waist pulling me close and not letting go. I know I'll feel safe in his arms and I feel like every time he looks at me he loves me for who I am exactly as I am. I can't wait to feel his skin against mine and make up for all our lost time, I owe him at least a million kisses. The kind of love I have for him is love that I never imagined I would have and now that I do I know he is more than my lover, he's my best friend. I can't even properly describe my love for him because its not something that can go into words, he'll know it by my touch, my smile and my kiss.
Stephan you are my world, and life isn't life without you in it, I love you with my whole heart, all of me. I'll be yours forever.
<3 your baby
