Our Story From The Very Beginning
Let me start with a bit about myself. I'm Gemma & I'm 26 years old. I've been with Aaron who is 23 (My toy boy.. Lol) just over 4 years now & engaged 4 years this Christmas. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride but he's the only guy I've ever truly loved. We've had to put the wedding off on numerous occasions due to circumstances but there's no need to get in to that now. Anyway, here goes...
How We Met
I suppose it all began with numerous relationships that didn't work out & men who treated me badly. It got to the point where I had had enough & I was on the verge of giving up on men. Then one night I was having a good moan about men online & somehow got chatting to Aaron who was determined to prove to me that not all men were the same. I agreed (against my better judgment) to meet up. For the first time in a very long time I met a decent guy who had the utmost respect for women. He was sweet.. Very cute.. Understanding.. Fun.. Loving.. & Caring. He was the perfect guy with everything a woman could possibly want in a guy. The trouble was he wasn't my type. He was nice for a start, a little too nice. I was too used to bad boys. Men who took charge.. & Aaron didn't excite me. But I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself falling for him, something I hadn't expected in my wildest dreams. So I decided to take a risk & go for it. After all that's what life's all about right, taking risks.. & we were surprisingly compatible. We got closer & closer & realised we had a lot in common. We were like 2 peas in a pod. We shared everything with each other. Did everything together. Suddenly we became one & all our ups & downs only made us stronger. We're like an old married couple already. We know one another inside out. I can read him like a book & vice versa which is a good thing because it proves how well we know each other & there's no unpleasant surprises. We're very comfortable with each other & there's nothing we can't get through as a couple. This is our forever after.
It hasn't all been plain sailing. We've journeyed along a very bumpy road. Infact it's been one hell of a rollercoaster ride. We've dealt with a lot of issues along the way & overcome many difficulties.. & last year we had to endure a lot of heartache & suffering when our beautiful little boy was born. At only 4 days old he had a life saving operation but our fears didn't end there. We spent the first 6 months of his life in & out of hospital seeing various specialists. It was the hardest year of our life having to stand by & watch our little boy suffer, knowing we couldn't do anything about it. It broke our hearts.
Finally he was well enough to be discharged. We've come a long way since then & Dafydd's made excellent progress but it's still a constant worry every time he gets ill. It's made us a little over protective but more importantly it's made us cherish every moment because every second of every day really does count.
We both have amazing family & friends all of whom have supported us through our darkest & most difficult times. I don't know how we would have gotten through it all without them. We're so lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives. Xx
We had been together about 6 months so we knew each other pretty well by then. We were e
