I am well aware that we are exceptional. And actually it was only for about two weeks that we wrote before we met. I wouldn't recommend it to just anyone and as with any relationship requires total honesty on both parts.
I had actually answered quite a few personals before I stumbled onto Thinker. I think his header read something like "One good man looking for one good woman". I remember thinking, yeah right someone to do his laundry, cook for him, and generally be a slave. Isn't that what they are all looking for? LOL. But he directed me to a site where he had filled out a detailed comprehensive profile on himself. In order to look at the profile, I had to fill out one too. It took me two hours and toward the end, I was fudging a little. But when I finally looked at his profile I was amazed at our compatibility. When I wrote him and told him I had filled one out. He shot back a letter asking if I had read his before filling mine out, thinking that perhaps I had plagarized a little. No such chance. It was all completely honest and above board. We have had absolutely no suprises (except for some good one's that I'll let you guys guess about) in the year and half we have been together.
We view our meeting online as an old fashioned way of getting to know each other. And also we feel very strongly that there was some kind of force bringing us together. One of the really weird things is that we were only living fifteen miles from each other.
