Well I suppose this thread is quite obviously inspired from another thread. Hopefully it can inspire more threads like it. Inject a little more love into these forums.<br><br><br><br>
I am the significant other of Rahkoon - a forum member - and I just know you all want to read our story. Told from my eyes.<br><br><br><br>
Time is relative in the seat of the mind, because it seems like an epoch ago but just yesterday that my relationship started. Rahkoon and I had met on this very forum just over 2 years ago now that I think of it. I had been complaining in the teen forum - I was a teen then - about being stereotyped as a thief just because of my age. It was one of the first times my posts got any responses in my stay on the board. Rahkoon was hard to miss, her avatar was a picture of Bob Marley and a Lions head, and I did not miss it. While looking through thread she did not miss me either because she responded to my posts and I to hers. Shortly after I recieved a new person on my msn.<br><br><br><br>

Well in the ever so polite text she - in a very shy manner - asked me if it was alright that she added me to her msn. I - hopefully equally - politely said that it was all fine, well and good. This is about the time when I learned she was from Paris France and she learned I was from Canada. I resited the temptation to ask about the Eiffel tower. We connected on a cultural level of sorts and learned new things about cultures we didn't even know. We had the same tastes in all that musical stuff that seems to make so many peoples lives go round but we were from completely different countries. We spoke of our political ideoligies which were then and still are leftist ones. We quite often seemed to embody the ideal partner to eachother, yet we were so far apart and had so much more to learn. Which isn't a bad thing isn't! Her english was great, my french was then and is some days now non-existant. Life continued in this casual friendship manner for some time.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/book2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":book:"><br><br><br><br>
We have skipped a little in timespan because things continued much in this way for a while as we lived our lives. The events worked out naturally, we got into some casual conversation about studying, vacationing and studying abroad which led into more frequent conversations. This was in october of 2005 if I remember it well enough and I believe I do. We knew as a growing friendship that the internet was not always the funnest place to be (is "funnest" even a word). So we - like many people do - idolized a fictional place in our minds where we could take our friends to get away from the toils of the modern world (the conversation about this place was roughed out a while beforehand). Yet ladies and gentlemen, there is a moral to this story... We got to know eachother better. Isn't that great, I think it is! So after weeks of getting up early or staying up late -depending on the time zone - to talk we had a conversation laden with nervous imagery. We call it the "Mr. Left" conversation which is an inside joke I am just not ready to let you in on. This conversation was born out of warm squishy feelings and a slight fear of rejection on both sides. After some general confusion, alot of sweating and some good fun we came to a conclusion: Those squishy feelings were something we both had... for eachother. Now honestly on my side I has zero idea where to go from here, I am not saying I didn't think it would work, I am just saying we were in completely different countries, this was new to me. Yet we pressed on, happily even. Well we talked it over, and she decided she even wanted to come visit me, yeah I was suprised too. And you know, a couple months later she did come to visit me in Edmonton Canada. Which drags us up to the next point of nervousness. Now let me pause to reasure you that neither of us are nervous all the time, these were just some big steps and you know we had as many warm fuzzy feelings as nervous ones. So as her plane was landing so was the lump in my stomach and you can be sure she was nervous that I would not even be there. But I was there and I watched her come through the little doorways as I walked up... and gave her a hug. Ok so I am a shy guy, we started with a hug and worked our way from there. She stayed for about 2 weeks even though I tried to get her to stay longer. Well I showed her what I could but we mostly fell to hugging and cuddling and spending time together and I had fun, I think she must have not had a terrible time either because we are still together. When she spent the two weeks after the first week I thought "wow, we still have a whole other week" then at the end of two weeks I felt like "where did all the time go". Parting was not fun at all, but I couldn't just keep her she had to get on that plane and go back to France. Which she did. Well she got back and we returned to the internet to conmmunicate and immediatly started talking about my trip to France in the summer (which we began planning right away).<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br><br><br>
Well ok, I started hunting for a job to fund my trip (Ironic, "hunting"). I found something working in another kitchen but it paid my way to France so whatever it was I could be grateful for it. So I woke up early to get in some hours talking with my Love on the internet then working to pay for my trip. It was a change for the hours on end of talking we did in the past, but without the time I spent at work I wouldn't be where I am today.<br><br><br><br>
Come about the summer - end of june - I had a wedding to attend then I was leaving Canada for the summer. Well the wedding was fun but my patiance was wearing thin and finally I flew out of Calgary and spent a night in a British Airport. I flew out of that airport the next morning, the horrible irony is that I could have made the flight the night before but I didn't know that when I purchased the ticket. So the plane landed, in Paris, France. I hauled my half dead person off the plane and waited - for what I felt was much too long - to get my sad dying bag and finally I walked through the gates and there was Rahkoon. In her wisdom she suggested quickly a baggage cart and I did not argue, we just went around the corner and hugged and kissed for about 5 hours before taking the transit home.<br><br><br><br>
more <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br><br><br>
France was like something I had never seen in my life. My general first impression was "its so old" which is certainly the opposite of a bad thing. So we arrived home and she fed me. She knew I must have been starving after dealing with that british food (no offense to the brits on this forum, really I don't mind some of the food). We spent the summer being in love as she showed me around Paris and some other part of France and a few countries in Europe, like Luxembourg. All in all, I didn't go back to Canada. Well I did, time to get my Visa (all the visa, immigration crap really is... crap). So I returned for a year, I am still here, we are still dating. This september we will leave to Montréal to live, then back here.<br><br><br><br>
Thats my story, its condensed. Took me a while to write it, had to pause to take a Dog to the vet, then we visited with the cat who just got back from the vet. We didn't eat either of them, don't worry.<br><br><br><br>
Anyways, this emoticon is called "smitten" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br><br><br><br>
I love you Rahkoon

Oh and the other day, he was waiting for me at the train station and he went like "oh well by the way I looked into the signification of roses. You were right, red roses do mean passion, and one red rose means 'I love you'" and he gave me a red rose he had been hiding behind his back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

Diplomatic cuteness? I wonder if the word diploma has anything to do with the word diploma-tic ? (I guess not really) BUT YES REALLY to CUTE. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"><br><br><br><br>
hey and arguements can be the cutest, even if they are stupid, but we all have em, so justifiably maybe, you should include them, not exclude them, whaddya think !!? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It probably has some common roots with diplomatic. Like something official, I guess.<br><br><br><br>
Oh we couldn't really include arguments, because well we don't really argue about small useless things (I hate when people do that :/ ). So yeah...<br><br><br><br>
Can't wait to have my official diploma <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

yes so maybe you feel shy even more now, but its good to exhibit feelings like this I think especially when in love... and especially for young people still getting a grasp on things anyway.<br><br><br><br>
Who is the shier one of you both? Bout the same or if not, who was more shyness, the giver (you) or Rahkoon receiving a rose of affection or whatever it is?<br><br><br><br>
Anyway you should be proud you had the guts to manifest your love with a rose, and nevermind the shyness.... Love can conquer shyness too as well as a multitude of other things! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/kiss2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":trick:">
