Love is in the air...

Here are the 1st 2 emails between Sei and I when we first met online. We laugh so hard when we read them because we were the biggest dorks in the world!! Neither one of us sound like ourselves, yet, for some reason we knew we were suppose to continue to write each other...

From Sei (the little words in parenthesis are just me being a dork.):

How are ya? I'm pretty new to this whole online thing also. Still feels kinda weird. Anyways, I was just browsing through the profiles and your picture caught my eye. (Because I was HOT!!;) Hope everything is going well for you as you adjust to the whole single thing again.. You appear to be a very beautiful person and seem to have a lot going for you.. Keep your head up (quote from a Tupac song!) and things will work out for you I'm sure.

I just signed up yesterday and don't have a picture up yet (if that matters) but I promise you I'm not some freak of nature. I work a lot of hours and don't have much time to get out so I thought I'd give this a shot and see if I could meet some cool peoples. Hope this message finds you doing well. Take care.

My reply:

Hey- thanks for writing. A picture will help you get more hits on your profile, so you may wanna get one up. (Because I need to know if you're gross...) I am doing really well & I appreciate you asking. (Who talks like that?? DORK!)

How old are your little girls? My only daughter is 2. I also have 4 & 6 year old boys. Do your girls live near you? Are you in Provo? I have a sister in Provo, that's why I'm asking. :)

Thank you for writing me a normal message- some guys on here seem to think that proposing marriage or writing me sappy lines will work for me & it doesn't. (Yes it does.) So, THANK YOU for being normal. I hope you are well & hope to hear from you again.

So, there you have it. Where it all began. It's fun to read thru our old emails and laugh at the exaggerations and dorkiness. For example- Sei never owned the "Best of Friends" dvd as he claimed to in an email. We still joke about it. LOL

Those are dorky and darling!!
How funny that you saved them!

Yvonne said...

I think those are great--and I agree with justrandi--so cute that you saved them.

I bet you left off the whole port-a-potty thing on your profile, right? False advertising!!

My wife and I were engaged in February 2001, married on September 15, 2001. You and Sei met and got married all within that timeframe. You crazy kids!

How about all those typos in your message?

NOBODY said...

Sept 14-present: And they lived happily ever after.
It helps because you're always happy, right?

I love stories about you and Sei.

It's a good thing you're hot Tori, cuz that email is hilarious.

I'm sure your father is glad you kept him in the dark about this romance. You could have caused him to get white hair if he had known the timeline.

I was not expecting to really meet someone online, let alone marry the person I met. I'm still trippin because my wife and family are awesome and I feel extremely blessed. The porta-potty thing may have changed my mind if I would have known about it.

Millie said...

Yay!!! *clapping*

You and Sei are so great together. That 30 seconds we spent in the parking lot together told me everything I needed to know. ;)

MommyJ said...

I really love this story. :)

Tori :) said...

Seiuli you're gonna drive me crazy with the whole "You're" "Your" thing!!

Omar-
I think I made all those typos when I was re-typing it last nite. I'll have to fix it so I don't look stupid...

omar said...

(resisting urge to make a blonde joke)

Tori :) said...

Sorry Omar. I had a blonde moment. :P

Mikelene said...

That was fun to read. I especially liked your extra comments in the (). You moved to UT on my 6th wedding anniversary! :) Just thought I'd mention that.

Kimberly said...

S said...

S said...

Or is it the other way around?

Anyhow I have several friends that have met this way and married this fast. When its right its right! Happy Valentines day!

carrie said...

Those emails are so sweet and they don't sound dorky at all. Maybe I'm a dork. Your hair looks great!

Klin said...

I love it. I am so glad it worked for you. I have a couple of other friends who have met great men online, too.

None are as perfect of a match as you and Sei though. <3
