TITLE: First Day Together
By The Masked Truelovers


My stomach had been in knots for days. I met a wonderful woman just over three weeks ago on a Christian Dating Site. We had been chatting and exchanging emails for all those days because we live in two different States – three hours away. Five days ago, I had already asked her to be my girlfriend instead of waiting to see how we get along in person. Two days ago, I had already blurted out, “I love you”, because I couldn’t hold it in until I met her in person. We had grown very close so quickly. We had felt an instant connection from the first chat and soon realized we shared amazing compatibility with each other. Now here we were, an eternity later, …finally meeting.

She had already inspired poetry from my heart in some of my emails to her. In about two weeks’ time, our budding relationship bloomed early into greater expressions of passion towards each other. Our cell phone conversations began just after that mark as well, and I remember how sweet a voice she had from the moment she opened her lips on the other end of the line. As uneasy as I felt on the phone for the first time, I could tell that it just didn’t matter to her. Neither one of us were judging the other’s eloquence on the phone. We were just happy to hear each other’s voices for the first time.

And today would be the first time we would lay eyes on each other, touch each other. Today, our bodies would catch up with what our souls had already experienced together over the internet and by cell phones. Our minds, emotions and bodies were in agony by now. The anticipation of finally meeting had grown increasingly intense with each day.

We had agreed to meet at a midway point between our two States. We had also decided to just drive until we ran into each other via the same route and work out the rest of the details when we meet. As we talked by cell phone the whole way, I began to write poetry in my mind to her. Then I would recite it back to her – along with a made up tune.

“Ohhhh,” she responded. “…Nobody has ever written poetry for me in my life, let alone serenaded me. I can’t believe this is happening. You really are too good to be true.”

“You make it easy for me, baby. It naturally flows from my heart. I just had to write a poem for you to express the intensity of my feelings as we go to finally meet each other,” was my response.

Now was the moment of truth. We had already agreed that we were meeting as a couple – not as two strangers on a blind date checking to see if we hit it off. We knew we were compatible and had a natural connection with each other. We had already committed ourselves to a relationship in the few days before that. We didn’t care that it had only been a few weeks. We didn’t care that we had never met. We didn’t care what family or friends thought. Our hearts had already met – it seemed like centuries ago.

We ended up in the empty parking lot of an Elementary School. We pulled up in parking spots a few car widths away from each other. We looked at each other, smiled, and waved. Who would be the first to step out of the car? We hung up our cell phones, and she braved the first move. I mustered up the courage to get out of my car second. We met at the trunk of my car.

Our eyes met with acceptance. As we had previously agreed, we immediately wrapped our arms around each other and hugged tightly. Then our lips found each other, something we had both been so looking forward to. With our arms still embracing the other, we finally kissed.

“Ohhhhhhh,” we both thought. We didn’t let go of each other for about an hour.

Oh, wow, this is beautiful! How exciting! I have to ask as well, is this true? Great writing!

It is 100% true, except for minor dialogue paraphrasing. Thanks for the comments.
