How we met

My FI and I met a few years ago through a friend of mine who's husband was stationed in Iraq with him. The first time I met him he was so shy and quiet that I wasn't sure of what to think there was definitely something there but getting him to talk required a crowbar. Unfortunately, about a month after we met he was once again deployed to Iraq. Due to unfortunate events in my personal life we lost touch for much of his deployment but right after he got back he contacted me through myspace, I gave him my number and that night he called me and we talked for 10 hours straight. I knew then that he was the one I was meant to be with.
The first year of our relationship was long distance since I lived in Florida and he was stationed in North Carolina. That was one of the hardest things I have had to do but we worked hard and he drove 6 hours every other weekend to see me. We just recently moved to New Hampshire and live in a great place with our two dogs and two cats. Right now, he is serving the rest of his time recruiting for the Army while I spend my days working as a veterinary nurse and finishing my degree.
