The fairy tale continues:
I have already posted our story here on Oasis, but I felt I had to update it. So many people meet, be that online or in real life, think that they found the love of their life, then they fail miserably, only months into the relationship.
But here is our story: We met on Oasis on November 11th, 2013. I was living in Australia, and he was living in the United States. It was instant chemistry, and we fell so deeply in love, I decided to leave everything behind: my grown-up children, my relatives, my lifestyle. I sold most of the things I had, and bought a plane ticket to come and join the love of my life. Both my family and his, as well as friends, were against it. On his side, they were saying that I was probably a fraud, as everything sounded too good to be true. As for my close ones, they were saying that I was most likely heading towards a disaster. Two months after we met online, I landed in the United States. Another two months later, we got married.
In a few days from now, we will celebrate one year since we first met in person; the day of my arrival in the United States.
I don't know of anyone else who has been or is as happy as my husband and I are in our marriage. My husband and I love each other insanely. Our love grows more and more every day. 2014 was, by far, the best year of our lives. And 2015 looks set to be even better. And every year after that.
Our fairy tale began on Oasis. It never withered. It only grew more beautiful with each passing day.
That's why I am back here, to thank Oasis once again, for making it happen. You know why? Because, for weeks, we had had our Oasis account settings set so that we could only be visible to local matches. Days before we met, we both changed the settings to 'worldwide'. Then my picture popped on my husband's Oasis account, on the scrolling bar that displays possible matches. If my picture wasn't there, he probably wouldn't know, to this day, that I exist. Oasis made it possible.
