Love Story of Juvy

There was a time in my life that I had always wanted someone that I could love so deeply. I had so much love to give but never found "That Special Someone" to share it with. I never thought I’d find this kind of love. I thought that it was way out of my reach and would never come to me. Then one day I found the most wonderful man in the world.


It was summer of 2004 when Dave and I first met online. I was in Taiwan, working as a contract worker, while he lived in California. Two different places, two different cultures, countries so far apart!!! We found each other online in one of these dating sites on the internet called American Matching, well I think I found him first. It was just my first week since I signed up an account on that site, and one day after I got home from work, I went down to the basement of our dormitory where the internet cafes are…I usually go down there to surf the internet and chat with my friends and family back home in the Philippines. Then I was browsing on that site looking at some pictures of people I don’t know, reading their profiles and sending winks and love quotes to guys I found interesting. Dave is one of the members on that site and he’s one of the guys that I am interested at and so I sent him an email or a quote to kinda get his attention. “The most precious thing that a man should have is a woman’s heart.” It sure does catch his attention somehow, because he replied to my email. I was online that day on that site and he came on and message me. That was the first time we chatted. I still remember our first conversation. The first thing he said to me, “what are you looking for?” and I answered, “ a friend”, then he said, “good, me too.” So that’s how it started and then he asked me if we can move and talk to yahoo messenger and so we did. So we chatted for a while introducing each other and then he told me about this girl he met online I don’t know if he remember but I still remember her name. When we first started to chat, I never thought things would happen the way they did. We are talking only as friends. We have lots of things in common and I really enjoyed the time talking with him. I was with another guy back then that I also met online, but I wasn’t madly in love with him, it was the kind of relationship when you think that you are in love but actually you don’t have anything in common with your partner. He is a very jealous type of person and very impatient. I’ve never met him in person. And I remember one time we got into a fight and I was chatting with Dave, I was telling him all about it and it was funny though because I remember him teasing me about it afterwards because of something I said during our conference conversation, that makes him sooo mad. I think he got so jealous of Dave. Anyway, I broke up with that guy and I remember Dave keep telling me at that time that it is ok, and he always makes me feel better.

Cimg0316_1 He is a few years older than me, but I figured age doesn’t matter if we have a good chat. We got to talk about many things, mostly music though. After many more conversations, I realized I was really starting to like him. We discussed everything, our likes, dislikes, our troubles and our dreams and the more we talked the more amazed we became at how much we had in common. Weeks went by and every evening we would meet up and talk, the two hours becoming four then six. The weeks had become months and after that I started realizing how much I love talking to him, and how much I enjoy sharing things with him, and I love to hear his ideas and the way he think about everything. So one day, he asked me if I ever think about him in a different way other than a friend, I never thought I would have to answer a question like that because I wasn’t sure my self what to say. I didn’t want to mess everything up by saying that I don’t think about him in any other way, in the meantime, I didn’t want to make him think that I love him in another way, I was afraid that if I find out later that I am not it would break his heart. I honestly don’t know what to say when he left me all the messages offline telling me how he feels. Well, it was Gabby’s fault (lol!) yeah, I was chatting with his daughter that night while he is making dinner and she said she have some secret to tell me and she started telling me how much her dad likes me. And then I remember her asking me if I can be her step mom. I don’t know what to tell her so I told her about this girl he met instead and how much his dad likes her, and me and her dad are just friends. So after that he came in and of course he read our conversation and told me to ignore what Gabby said. Then the next day I came online only to find all his messages telling me that he want us to be more than just friend. I was speechless, I don’t know what to say but then I was happy, I admit I have feelings for him too. But I keep it to myself because I don’t want to ruin our friendship. And that time his love was unfolded to me, I thought I was dreaming, I wrote him back telling him how I feel about it. At that time, my life change, I wasn’t bored anymore. I feel excited every time I come home knowing that he is there waiting for me. I look forward everyday of talking with him, spending hours online just to talk to him. I spent almost every waking moment talking to him and my sleeping moments dreaming of him. As time goes by we really found out that we really do love each other as much as we could just speaking online. We continued talking but this time it went on an even deeper level. It was so apparent to us both that we needed each other and everything about us was so compatible. I was able to finally send him letters and recent pictures of myself, and the way he reacted to them made me blush with delight. He told me how beautiful I was and everything. Although we see each other on web cam, I still manage to send him cards and pictures. As we talked more and more we learned even more about each other, helped each other through stressful times with work, family and just about everything.

After nine months, He said to me that he has the chance to come and see me in person, I was extremely surprised with what I heard and so much happy as well. We were so excited and as the time grew nearer we also became a bit nervous. April 14, 2005, Dave flew to Taiwan to visit me. Finally he is on the plane ready to take off from American grounds to land on Taiwan’s airport where I would be waiting to meet him and pick him up. The night I picked him up at the airport in Taipei was filled with thrill, nervousness and excitement. I was so nervous that time, I am going to see him the first time in person but also I’m all alone and I am not familiar with the place. But the moment his plane arrived I cant describe the excitements I felt, I am nervous and happy that finally I will be able to touch him and hold him and kiss him. As he walked out into the arrival section, my heart was basically in my throat. I felt glued to the spot I was standing in when he came out. I stood there for what seemed like an eternity, before I could finally move. I looked at him standing there looking for me, he is sooo handsome and everything I had imagined him to be. Then he turn to where I was standing and he saw me waving at him. While I was walking to go around the people and railings my heart is pounding so hard I cant breath. I was so nervous and shy to face him, I couldn’t look at him in the eyes, but I manage to give him a hug. Oh I thought I was dreaming, I finally was meeting him! Though we had been far apart with the ocean between us and never met each other we did not feel unfamiliar. Maybe because of predetermined fate? At our first meeting I felt like I’ve known him for a very long time, I really do believe he is my soul mate. But, let me tell you, when Dave took me in his arms and held me for the first time, I knew that it was meant to be. How did I know? I can’t explain it. I just knew. It was a gut feeling and feelings coming from my heart. But, to explain how I knew he is the one, that’s something that I will never be able to explain. I look back on it now and laugh. But, that first embrace was all I needed to seal my love for him. When he put his arms around me, I knew that I hadn’t made a mistake. Cimg0339_1
