The love story as told by Erik and Terrell

Our story began in June of 2012 in Cyberspace. Who knew your soulmate would be found through the wires and fibers of the internet. I guess God knew what we both needed and brought us together. Erik was on the internet and sent a "what's up" message to Terrell and he replied (Thank goodness). So we both chatted with each other for a while and found that there was this amazing connection that we had just through chatting on the internet. We were so into each other, we decided to meet in person instantly. So we met that night, we were both nervous, knowing what not to expect of our first physical encounter. Terrell showed up at Erik's door, and our eyes locked and we both smiled, and knew at that moment there was something special about each other. That night, we talked for about an hour or so, and the conversation was great! That same night Erik had agreed to hang out with his cousin, so sadly, we had to bid our farewells so Erik can hang out with his cousin. The whole time Erik was out, He couldn't keep his mind on anything else but Terrell. So you guessed it, Erik told his cousin, I got to go! There's this fine piece of chocolate that he had to see before the night ends. It felt like the scene in 'Cinderella" like you have until midnight to claim your Prince. So Erik called Terrell for a second meeting, and Terrell was just as excited to meet again. That night we just talked and got to know each other better. Also that night Terrell was introduced to the "The Housewives of Atlanta." It was one of the best nights of our lives. We both knew at that point what we had was something God definitely put together. We were two totally different individuals, but our heart and soul mended together as one. Since that night we have been inseparable ever since!
