Long story short, (maybe) I had to stay home a lot at night because I was a single mother who hated to get a sitter, and I was also short on cash. So once I was able to get online, I started chatting, mainly out of bordom (yes, really, lol).
He and I visited the same local chat room, chatted for about a month or so, exchanged pics, and I did something extraordinarily stupid, I invited him up for a weekend, not knowing anything about him except what we had said online and on the phone. Oh, and an online friend told me he was cute and nice, hehe.
Anyway, he came up, stayed the night, (we lived about 2 hours apart) and that was 4 1/2 years ago. I got lucky, he's not Jeffery Dahmer (at least he hasn't busted out that side of himself yet).
