    Baywriter and Sidewinder are engaged!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Baywriter, Jan 7, 2012.

    Sooo... Super cool story I have for you guys. I'm engaged to another member of this site, and the funny thing is that this is actually where we met. I reviewed one of his poems. I guess it must have been a useful one because he PMed me after to thank me. We started talking every day, wrote some poetry together. One of them was about how we vowed to meet each other in real life one day. I know. Sounds pretty farfetched, but I'm dead serious. Anyway, if it's possible to fall in love online, via chat, poetry, phone conversations, skype calls, then we did. We met up in real life, have been flying back and forth to see each other since, and he proposed to me on New Year's. (And my ring is beautiful!)

    Anyway, I'm soooo excited and really wanted to share it with everyone here, since this is the site where we met. Thanks! Haha.

    Thanks everyone. What Bayleigh's sharing is the condensed version. She's come to mean so much to me, and I'm looking forward to building a life together with her. Of all the things this site has done for me, this is by far the best.

    Congratulations!
    I'm not sure if I've ever spoken to either of you, but I can relate to your story as I met my girlfriend on a music forum, and we have been living together for 3 years, and dating for 6 and a half.

    Best Wishes

    This story is ludicrously cute. Also falling in love over poetry is eminently classy.

    Best of luck to you two.
