Subscriber active since. In early March, I said goodbye to my boyfriend outside Orlando International Airport after one of our usual visits back and forth. If I had known then what I know now, I would have kissed him longer or hugged him harder. I landed back in Massachusetts — where I've been living and working as a writer for most of our relationship — in a sea of uncertainty.
I first met my fiance online through a mutual game we both played.
From there we messaged each other, eventually spoke on the phone, and finally met in person. We both never expected that things would last as long as they did- we are so grateful it did though. Now four years later we are living with each other, and are planning our wedding.
Keep reading to find out how I met my long distance boyfriend for the first time and guess what? For many people, how I met my fiance is a bit nontraditional. While I was an undergraduate in college, I played a couple of computer video games in my spare time.
Surprisingly, this is how I met my- now fiance. He message me while I was playing and from there we began to talk, which was every time we were both online.
Slowly, after a couple of weeks we spoke over the phone. I loved his voice. We exchanged Facebook information, and funny thing, he thought I was cat-fishing him. We both joke about it, even today- four years later.
After meeting in September ofby February we officially started dating. I was unsure how this would workout.

We were desperate to meet one another, and it came sooner than we thought. After months of dating we were dying to see each other.
In order for this to happen we both dropped the ball to ours friends and family that we were dating. We both somewhat lied about how we met, for me out of embarrassment because it was through our mutual love for a computer game. With our schedules now in sync it would finally be the time we would meet each other face to face.

The first time we met was without a doubt the scariest, and most exciting day of my life. My head was spinning, and I WAS terrified. Will I be able to recognize him from the pictures? These were the things running through my mind as I was sitting there, until I finally seen him. The pictures were right, the Snapchat videos were right, it was him. He waved, and I waved, and suddenly we were off. It was about 11 pm, and the drive to the hotel was a bit awkward at first.

Then suddenly we talked as if we had known each other for a long time. Conversation flowed between us, and it was great.
After our initial meeting, my fiance and I made trips throughout the years to visit one another. As our love grew, so did the ache we felt when we had to leave each other.
For his 25th birthday two years after we first met I planned a trip down to Florida. It was magical.
We were popping our Florida cherries with a trip to Orlando, and one day at the beach he popped the question. Today we have been together for four years, and almost engaged for two.
