    Chad and I met online in March of 2008. I had been posting weight loss videos on YouTube for almost a year when I ran across his videos. He had just started making his weight loss "vlogs" and I was more than eager to welcome him to the community. I felt an instant attraction to him, and started to become quite flirty!

    I spent months getting to know him online, not caring that he lived 500 miles away. There was something about him that I knew was important- significant. I would ask him hypothetical questions like "what if I were passing through KY, would you meet me?" and he'd say no, and explain that he is shy and how he never really had a serious relationship before. Which blew my mind because he is quite a catch! But he felt he needed to wait til he found the RIGHT person before having any kind of commitment...and he was scared I lived too far away for us to work. But there was still an attraction there we couldn't ignore.

    Finally he agreed to meet me in August and we planned a mini-vacation to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC- which was close to a halfway point between our states.
    We had an amazing weekend and hit it off immediately, as you can see by these pictures. :P

    Being away from him was unbearable, so 3 weeks later I took the 8 hour drive to KY to spend Labor Day weekend with him. And then I travelled there once a month for the next 5 months before my mom got sick and I had to stay home to be with her. He started to visit me during school breaks then (he is in his last year of college.)

    I went up for Valentine's day and I planned a romantic dinner for him, and we had his apartment to ourselves. The night before I noticed he was very fidgety and restless. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. He couldn't sit still!

    The next morning we got up and had breakfast, got dressed, etc and he mentioned us opening our gifts to each other. I thought it was just weird- it wasn't even lunch time yet! I assumed we'd exchange gifts at dinner.

    So I agreed and he set up my camera to record us, which didn't raise any concern for me as we were ALWAYS filming ourselves for youtube. He opened his gift (I got him a wireless router) and then I opened mine.

    Now, you have 2 choices. You can either
    a) watch the following video and see it all unfold
    or
    B) read the story below. :)

    I recommend watching the video, but if you don't want to do that, it's cool.
