Heather & Matthew, Married

"Long Distance Love"
I met the love of my life on October 16, 2011. I read over his profile and realized he was exactly what I'd been hoping to find. We started messaging on POF and I found out that he was overseas, serving our country. So we had no choice, but to get to know each other through email. As we got closer, I gave him my number. Because of the time difference, we would both lose sleep just so we could talk. I started looking forward to those calls. I held my breath between calls, hoping he was safe. We started writing letters and then I got the news. He was coming home. Although, I did not know the date until he arrived in the US. The very first time we laid eyes on each other it was April 13, 2012. Six months of communicating and he was finally home! I knew the moment I saw him in the airport, that he was the one. Through this site we got to really know each other. On July 14, 2012, in front of 5,000 service men and women, he proposed at the Augusta Green Jackets Stadium on Military Appreciation Day. He has a fear of public speaking, so it was no easy task. Thank you, POF! You matched me with my best friend!
