Today’s #reverb11/#resound11 prompt comes from Jaemie at #resound11:
Who do you love unconditionally? Who loves you unconditionally? Who do you love despite their flaws? All is love.
Once upon a time, in April 2008, I met a guy online.
I was at the end of a failed marriage, and I wasn’t looking for anything more than a friend.
Right before I made the final decision to move back to Indiana, I came out here to visit some friends from high school. On my last night in town, I was browsing Myspace, looking to make some new friends before moving back here. I happened upon a profile that was generally bare bones, with a couple photos and minimal information. Normally, I wouldn’t have even given a bare profile like that a second look. Yet for some reason, this one spoke to me.
So I wrote a message to the owner, asking them not to delete my message, as I was not a typical Myspace “whore bot”. And he responded.
On December 4, 2009, I married him.
Best decision I’ve ever made.
Mr. Fox and I have had our moments. Sometimes we argue, and sometimes we get pissed off at each other. More often than not, the good outweighs the bad. We know how to look past each other’s flaws and make sure we appreciate each other for everything else. Yeah, sometimes he can be a total ass, and then other times he can be a total romantic schmooze. I’m sure he could probably say similar things about me.
But I love him unconditionally. And he loves me too.
