I met the man of my dreams through a job (his company contracted work for mine) but it took us about 6 years to realise we were more than just friends. Finally after those 6 long years (& a few failed dates with a few toads) we got our act together & decided to see if we had a future together. Now the only obstacle in our way was a couple of thousand miles & a few states. He lived in Victoria & I was in Queensland. So on Friday 13th this wonderful man jumped on a plane & flew up to spend the weekend with me. Then 1 month later he came up again & this time met my family. Fast forward 12 wonderful but hard months of flying back & forth between 2 states & I packed up my life & puppy & moved to VIC. We got our first place together & everything was going amazingly well. Another year later & we moved into our next place together & then paid the deposit for our planned month long holiday – Medertreanian 12 day cruise, 1 week in France & 1 week in Italy. Now Christmas Day was here & we headed over to his parents home for the traditional family Xmas lunch. I really wasn’t feeling to well & decided that I just couldn’t stomach wine this time. That afternoon we realised I might be pregnant & on Boxing Day we confirmed we were expecting our first child. Now as happy as we were about this it dawned on me the timing wasn’t so great as it meant I was due to give birth right in the middle of our holiday. So needless to say our holiday was now “postponed indefinitely” & we lost our deposit. In June we decided to have once last couple weekend away & i booked a private villa. It was there that my wonderful man proposed to me at sunset & of course i said yes. In September 2011 I gave birth to our beautiful baby girl (after a terrible pregnancy) & so began a whole new chapter of our lives. Then in September 2012 we decided to try for our second baby as we were so very in love with our little girl & wanted to give her a sibiling to grow up with. Just 6 weeks later we fell pregnant with bub # 2 & in June of 2013 (after another terrible pregnancy) we had a baby boy. Now our gorgeous girl is 2, our little darling boy is almost 5 months old & I am planning our wedding for next September. So I guess the point of my telling you my story is to show every woman that fairy tales are real & so is Prince Charming & I can’t wait to see what the rest of my happily ever after has in store :)

Post your story
  • I loved your story. It gave me hope, after a couple of negative relationship experiences in the last couple of years. It also made me laugh when you mentioned dating toads, as one of my older friends always used to say in reference to any sort of dating that “You have to kiss a few toads to find a prince.”


  • A true life fairy tale.


  • Oh you had me in tears loverly story I wish my story was as beautiful as yours. Happy for you both and your bubbies.


  • i wish you all the best!!!


  • My man moved interstate to be with me. I wrote a story a few months back on here called my one & only true love. I’m so glad you have met your Prince Charming, they do exist. I wish you the very best, may you love & be loved forever :)
