We had a huge fight on graduation, I freaked out and was calling names to everyone.
After meeting in an online chatroom about aviation, we struck up a friendship, and began chatting on Yahoo and AIM for a little over 2 years. luvsisterhazel was my favorite thing to see online of all of my online friends, but it wasn't until I knew she would be joining me in person that I thought any more of it.
We met on December 21st, 2001. It was originally just a meeting between two people who happened to know each other and who happened to be in the same place together, but I know going into it that it would turn into more. We agreed to date exclusively and be long-distance, with quite a few visits along the way. Somewhere in the middle, we discussed getting married while she was down for a visit, and decided that we wanted to, but should wait longer to make it official.
The shortest part of our relationship, we were in the same city and dating each other. We spent most of our time together, did everything together. I bought her an engagement ring in December, asked her father for permission, and then we were engaged.
We were engaged for a short time, not necessarily by design, but partially to accommodate everyone in our families. Because of our short courtship, we had originally intended to have a longer engagement, more on the order of 9-11 months, but circumstances changed that. College, work, LM's family situation, finances, etc.
I lived on campus and off, always with a roommate, until a few weeks before we got married. We got an apartment together before she left for Alabama so that we could come home after the wedding to an established house.
Our first apartment, I moved in right before we got married, and we moved out when we moved to Atlanta to take a job.
I moved to FL before Lindsay to take a job and let her finish school and graduate.
Bought a House
Living @ Home with Parents
One year in the dorms, and then back home before the wedding.

Jonathan was attending First Baptist College program on Saturday nights and Church on Sunday morning. When Lindsay moved to town, she went a few times, but did not like it, and so we stopped going.
South Daytona United Methodist. Where we did out pre-marital counseling along with Uncle Bob. We attended during our counseling, Lindsay was more comfortable having grown up Methodist, and they were a reformed congregation with a modern service. After we got married, we drifted away and one day just stopped going.
