keith was flashing through pics on pofwhen he got caught on mine.. No matter how many times he left it something brought him back to it so he messaged me. He said he got lost in my eyes and knew I probably wouldnt message him back but he wanted to say hi.. I was on that day to delete my account but read his message first. I almost didnt reply but something made me type hi.. back and instead of deleting my account I ended up messaging with him. We messaged until my laptop was about to die and then exchanged phone numbers and started texting. We agreed to meet for our first date the wed of the following week but fate kicked in and a close friend of his died of a drug overdose.. As he was feeling sad and broken over losing another friend to the disease of addiction I offered that he could stop by my work for a hug. He showed up as I was going on a break so I sat next to him at one of the tables. His arm automatically came around me and i slid next to him as if we had always just been.. It felt like a click like two halves of a whole finally coming together and I knew then we were meant to be.. We decided we didn't want to miss a moment so that night we went to the beach and he kissed me in the moonlight while we listened to the waves. When it got cold we went to starbucks where we sat curled together talking for hours and hours til they kicked us out not wanting the night to end. We havent been apart since....
He asked me to marry him on our 9 month anniversary right where we shared our first kiss... On the beach in the moonlight listening to the waves... He held out a ring and his heart to me when he told me he loved me more then anything.. He is my destiny and my life. He is the dad to my five year old and we decided to try for more children even though I was told I couldn't have more children.. Once again the fates stepped in and we are expecting a beautiful baby girl in march. We have put our wedding off so we can save up enough to make a day to remember....

Is there a moment or shared experience that still makes both of you laugh out loud?
Keith got scared and decided to break up with me because he was feeling too much too fast. I said fine but it would be the biggest mistake of his life.. He thought about it for a minute and said yep your right never mind.
What advice would you give other POF members looking to find that special someone on POF?
Believe in pof... just when we both thought we'd never find love we found our soul mates.
