“I live in Sydney Australia. I met Bob, who lives in Ohio, USA, in one of FirstMet.com‘s chat rooms. I was 59 and Bob was 57 when we met in the chat room on June 9, 2011. He said he knew in the first five minutes that he wanted to chat with me more and that we would have a great connection. Well, I thought he was crazy but he was right – so right!
So, we chatted for hours online, and I finally asked Bob if he wanted to come to Sydney to meet up. However, he had never been outside of the USA and didn’t have a passport so he wasn’t sure, at first. A week later he told me he had applied for his passport and I was so happy. He flew into Sydney on August 25th (10 weeks after we met on FirstMet.com).I picked him up at the airport and everything just felt so right. After our first hug and kiss we knew this was a good thing. We went on an adventure in my motor home for two weeks and after that stayed in Sydney at my home for another three weeks. During this time, we both fell totally in love and are making plans for our future. It looks as though I will be moving to the USA. I am traveling there on November 22nd to meet Bob’s family and friends and stay with him for 6 weeks (over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s).
Next year, I will apply for an extended visa to the USA so we can be together. Well that’s our story, in essence, the shortened version. I think it’s a wonderful one, especially for this to happen at our age!”
