5 year anniversary

When I joined GM in spring of 2006, I marked a handful of other profiles as 'favorites' and managed to chat with all of them except for this one person, who only replied to one email and then seemed to drop of the site. Since he was in Washington state and I was in Massachusetts ~ and not looking for anything serious anyway, I didn't think much of his disappearance.
By late summer, my professional life had gotten very busy and I knew I wasn't going to have time to be online as much as I had been, so set about closing down my profile ~ but I couldn't quite bring myself to un-favorite this one guy, even though I'd never seen him on; his profile was just too intriguing.
The last week before my membership lapsed, I logged on and a heart in the chat room caught my eye ~ Lithus was online. Finally. And he was as interesting in person as his profile had been. Instead of losing touch at the end of that week, we agreed to keep in touch. And did we ever.
We moved in together in 2007 and in 2009, stood in our living room with a handful of family and exchanged vows. This past February, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary.
We're best friends, lovers, and partners in every way. And we never would have met had it not been for Gothic Match.
