Thanks to God, and a dude named Tom, we met on Myspace. I was once hesitant to tell people this fact because they automatically assumed that either I was out of my mind or Jon was a psychopath. (This was before most people had been afforded the opportunity to meet my beloved in person.) To make matters easier for me (not really) Myspace has never exactly had the greatest reputation, to say the very least. Anywho, I stuck to my gut instinct: this guy was pretty amazing. So, I ignored those who chose to roll their eyes and say not-so-nice things to discourage me from loving him as much as I did and still do.
The Juicy Details:
Well, just a few days after Valentines Day (in 2009) I was feeling a bit sad/discouraged and decided to go online (this was when Myspace was still pretty popular) and look up Christian blogs by both guys and girls in my age group, who lived all over the United States. As soon as I entered the specifics and clicked "search" Jon's profile picture, in the second row, caught my eye. At first glance I assumed it was a photography page and decided to click on it and check it out. I've always had an amateur interest in photography.
Once on his profile, I realized it wasn't a photography page and he must be involved in some type of modeling (which he was, at the time, and no longer is.)
The photo that sparked my interest.
It was pretty obvious that he was a hot studmuffin dapper fellow, but I had my mind set on reading an encouraging blog post. So, I read his latest post and it became pretty clear that there was a ton of substance behind his hotness his good looks. And that's how it all began. I wasn't about to just leave his page and think to myself, "What a great guy! I hope he finds a lovely girl someday!"I did what any girl in my position would do: sent him a friend request.
The rest is history. =)
Many flights later, after one year of dating and getting to know each other, he got down on one knee and popped the BIG question. My immediate response: "The ring doesn't fit!" ... Okay, first I said YES, then I said "The ring doesn't fit!"
