However, since we met online and everyone kept asking us about it, we finally concocted a humorous story about meeting on an expedition up Mt. Everest. Here it is (for anyone interested), written by Tom. The funny part is that some people believed it. hahaha
It was the Fall of last year and I was on a hiking expedition on the Indian-Tibetan border near Mount Everest. Those of you who know me, realize that I am not, by far, an experienced climber. However, I wanted to see Mount Everest even if I wasn't going to climb it. After a few days with the locals, I was convinced that with the right expedition group, I could climb to one of the lesser peaks on Everest. So one cold, Friday morning, myself, my Sherpa, and an 8 member climbing group set off up the mountain. Even though it was late September, the frigid air and my numbing feet were almost unbearable.
Our Sherpa, Pasang, was from a small region called Terai just south of Nepal. What he lacked in size was made up for by his increasing age (lol). Well, to make a long story short, Pasang took ill late that afternoon. After struggling with the elements and his age, sadly he died early that evening right on the side of the mountain. Much of our climbing party were locals and held no personal regard for the transportation of Pasang's body to the base of the mountain. The consensus was to continue climbing and mark the location for others to find. I could not, in good conscience, allow that to happen. So, while the remaining members headed up the peak, I strapped Pasang's body into a makeshift sled and drug him back down the mountain.
When I reached the bottom, it just so happened that Deb was beginning her own climb with another group and Sherpa. Her Sherpa, Durga, invited me along with their group, which I accepted. Deb was excited to have someone else along who was also from Alabama (what a coincidence!) but I could tell she was much more into the younger Tibetan guys. Anyway, after our trek up and down the peak, I asked her to dinner and her response was, "I guess I could go on one date with you because you did carry down a dead Sherpa." The rest is history.

Don't let anyone tell you it's weird - it's much more common these days than it used to be. ;-)

We hit it off immediately and after chatting for only 2 weeks we decided to meet and the day after he came camping with me and my son for 3 days! Daring, maybe but so worth it. We've been inseperable ever since!

Needless to say neither of us was actually looking for someone, we just had characters that got along well and we sort of followed. Our characters fell in love before we did, which I guess was out way of "testing the waters"
we were online friends for about a year, probably longer, before we realised we'd fallen for each other. He was in Holland and I am in Canada, we flew back and forth to visit for about a year and a half and then he moved to Canada. He's applied for permenant residency and we've moved in together.
FI and I met playing World of Warcraft. Needless to say we were definately not looking for love! We were "ingame" friends for almost 2 years before we met....
Actually the FI said it best in the post he put on our website so I'm going to just copy it over :-)
"Our story begins as many others do, in an enchanted forest of a far away land. Now, depending on your point of view, this could mean the green trees of New England, or the virtual foliage of Elwynn Forest.
Having spent many hours conquering the evils of Azeroth in World of Warcraft, our first meeting was with friends in Claremont, New Hampshire. Neither of us knew at the time that something bigger was starting to grow between us. We parted ways after having a great time, and vowed to visit each other again soon. After an impromptu meeting with the same group of friends over New Years, a spark ignited between us, and we both now knew there was something special going on. Even though we lived many miles apart, we knew this was meant to be. With such a realization in mind Brandon packed up his things and moved from the suburbs of D.C. to the mean streets of Boise. We currently reside there with four furry children: The cats Mojo, Sugarbear, and Star, and a rambunctious puppy named â€œJupiter The Dogâ€.
Isn't that sweet? I thought it was so cute that he wrote that. Our family was a little unsure at first but he is the most caring, wonderful man I have ever met and he treats me each and every day like a goddess!
