This is a “true story” about how I met my boyfriend on a dating site on the Internet.
- Fifteen Years Ago -
I used to hang out at a country bar called Club Palomino. I loved listening to good bands there and dancing to their country rock music. I used to drag my friend out to see my favourite band “Cheyenne” play. They were amazing and always packed the place. My friend and I used to get up and dance to their songs. I was interested in the rhythm guitar player in the band. To me, he was the best looking one and I loved his voice along with the rhythm of his guitar music. Yes, I had the “hots” for him and would stare at him from the dance floor or the bar while he was playing his guitar or singing. I’ve always had this thing for bands as I play the guitar and always wanted to be part of a band too.

They played there for a long time and were the best band at Club Palomino. I would go there as much as I could just to hear them play, and of course, always watch my favourite player. The sad part about it was I used to see him with a short blonde girl, whom I assumed to be his girlfriend or wife. After seeing the band play there for a long time, the club closed down. Yes, the club was sold. A huge townhouse sub-division was put up in its place and the club was gone. So were all the bands and my favourite band, Cheyenne. When I first found out about the club closing down, I wanted to approach Cheyenne; particularly the rhythm guitar player and ask where would they play in the future. However, I didn’t have enough courage to do that. I guess things happen for a reason.
- Fifteen Years Later -
As time went on, I met someone and got married. That was a mistake. Eventually, we got a divorce. I starting going out to bars again but soon got tired of it and I wasn’t meeting anyone decent enough. I wasn’t crazy about the bands playing at other bars either. Later, a friend told me to join a particular dating site on the Internet, which I thought I would never do. Nevertheless, I thought I would check it out for fun as I heard so much about people meeting their soul mates from that site. Surprisingly enough, I had a few dates but I just didn’t find the right one from the dating site. I sort of gave up on it until one night.

After getting home from a bar, which I hated, I went on my computer. For some reason, I logged in onto that dating site again. I was really glad I did that. I got an interesting email from a guy and liked his picture. I was also touched by his email and flattered that he was interested in my picture and profile. From then on, we started emailing each other quite often on that site. We seemed to have so much in common through our emails. We continued writing and eventually got on msn and chatted for a while. He was Bulgarian and I was Hungarian. How common was that! We discovered from our msn chats that we had even more stuff in common. It was really amazing. Our families even lived in the same town of all places. We chatted every night as often as we could. And then, a miracle happened! We started chatting on our computers about music. We realized we liked all the same music and both of us wrote songs.
