A real Newgrounds love story! Mar. 21st, 2013 @ 09:27 PM Reply

My goodness where to begin with this...

I had been posting on and off on these forums quite often from 2003-2008. I made friends with a few people, some whom I am sure have forgotten me, and I am sure I have forgotten some as well. I'm not sure if anyone will remember me much, I wasn't the most active poster but I felt like I lurked more than anything.

Anyway, one day, in early 2008, I had been posting in a thread with someone whose username I paid no attention to and I assumed was just some dude on the forums, but he seemed pretty cool, so naturally, I check out the profile, right? Well, this guy turned out to be DanikaDarko. I was immediately shocked by her beauty, considering I had a few back and forths with her and never realized she was female, just a cool person. We seemed to hit it off pretty well as friends, talking in PMs and such, eventually moved on to AIM, then MySpace, then Facebook. We eventually started talking online and on the telephone pretty much daily. In late 2008, we began playing World of Warcraft together, that went on until very recently. We very quickly felt like we had strong feelings for one another, but never met. There were talks of it, but neither of us were very financially stable.. we were also really scared. (Even had a BBS thread here on NG about a potential visit.) She became my best friend, my confidante, someone I could always talk to, always feel comfortable with, and always count on to really take the edge off life. I fell deeply into love with this woman. I believe she felt the same way. The problem is that she is from Michigan and I am from Texas.

Things went well for a while, but then sometime in summer 2009, we were so sad that we weren't able to be together, were tired of the hurt, and way too lonely. We didn't talk for nearly a whole year. We saw other people, lived our lives, and did a lot of growing up. in summer 2010, Danika messaged me and we began talking again. I had written her from time to time, I still missed her pretty badly, as she had already been a huge part of my life. We had both been holding stable jobs and doing well for ourselves. I was seeing someone, and so was she, but within moments of talking, I think we reverted right back to our old feelings for each other. The relationships we were in became lame and fell apart pretty quickly after we found each other again, lol. Things moved a little more slowly this time, but the feelings remained, and in fact, they appeared to swell tremendously. We began video chatting nearly 24/7. If we were home, our cams were up. The time was never right for meeting each other, and it always seemed something was in the way. Finally, in January this year we decided it was time, and I recently started a pretty good paying job, so I booked my flight for February 17, 2013. Immediately upon arriving we had an undeniable connection, the missing link, all the years of wondering what each other smelled like, felt like, etc, was instantly replaced with the feeling that we had been together all this time. The creepiest part, I think, to both of us, was that even though it all felt new and exciting, we felt INCREDIBLY comfortable together, like we had just been apart for a while. It's hard to explain it how it really is.

So as of now, a month after my visit with her, I am making plans and preparations to relocate to be with her more permanently. I can definitely see spending the rest of my life with this woman. She's completely perfect for me. I'm sure there are lots of things that I left out, but to keep it from getting out of hand I will end this here. To me, this seems like some sort of internet nerd fairy tale. I will gladly answer any questions about how we managed to work this out, stemming from one random point in time that we were both on the forums. I probably had a 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999% chance to NEVER meet this person, who I believe is my soulmate. Strange how the world works these days.

I just want to say, thank you Newgrounds, if nothing else, you brought these two weirdos together, we believe we're meant to be together, and without this place, we surely would have never met at all. We are happier than we have been ever before in our lives.

Here's a video of us meeting for the first time, after talking online/video chatting for 5 entire years:

I didn' really read all of that to be honest, but I will give you some standard relationship congrats:

Congratulations on finding someone, man! Especially on the internet and Newgrounds of all places. I am so jealous right now, just like 85% of relationshipless users that will read this thread and comment in it will be. Best of luck to you and your girl.

Me.

I got the overall gist of it though. Guy finds girl on New grounds, they meet after 5 years of talking over the web. Nice.

It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again, it does this whenever it's told.
