My Better Half

Have I mentioned how much I love Google Reader? All of my blog subscriptions in one place, without all those annoying advertisements = pure bliss. Plus I can tag posts and categorize them just the way I like. EZPZ

One of the random blogs I follow is this one: Amanda Jane Jones. I don't really know who she is but she posts little stories called "My Better Half" which are pretty cute. Then she tells little snippets of their love story. Check out this one.

THEIR STORY (as told by Erin Jane)
I actually fell in love with Conor before I ever really met him in person. A good friend of mine gave me his number because she thought we would get along well. He was living in San Diego at the time and I was in Portland. On a whim I sent him a text. My friend was right. He quickly (and wittily) replied and we started a 2 month long text only relationship. We never spoke on the phone or met in person. It was really exciting to have a secret love interest and always receive these quirky little messages from a stranger. I told my family I was going to marry this guy I was texting. They thought I was nuts. I decided I should probably call him. The conversation was seriously awkward because we were both really nervous. We decided to meet. He flew up one day out of the blue about a week later and presented himself to me on my doorstep. I acted like a complete fool, jumping up and down and shaking my hands like a crazy person. I kissed him and we instantly became friends. We got married in 2010 and moved to Hawaii the next day. We just had our first baby a few months ago—a boy named Henry. He is beautiful!

Sounds pretty great, right? 

And as it turns out, I am not getting any younger and am most definitely single. 

So to you my readers and potential future matchmakers, feel free to dig through your contacts and find the perfect man for me. I definitely accept set-ups... just sayin.
