I was heartbroken, the English authorities kicked me out of the country for the third time. Once when I was on a student Visa, and I forgot to attend college. And, once when my Visa expired, and again when my online love connection fell apart right at London’s, Heathrow Airport.
More than ever I was determined to marry an English man and live in England. The fact that I wasn’t’ an English citizen, had no affect on my goals. This had been a lifelong dream since I was a young girl.
After my second disastrous, encounter with the country of England, I decided my online dating would surely place me in a position to ultimately become an English citizen by way of marriage.
After several months of hot and heavy conversations, online and by telephone, with a young man, we will call Chad, I packed my bags and headed for England for the third time. I had extremely high hopes that our relationship would work out.
After I arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport, I was filled with excitement, and overwhelmed with grief, all within a span of 90 seconds. Because I had been a little late arriving at JFK, my seat on the aircraft was in the back of the plane.
As I waited my turn to get off the aircraft, I was filled with joy, at seeing a man I had come to care for deeply, online. I had no idea that our first meeting would be our last, , nor that a man whom I had never seen before could generate disappointment, embarrassment, and emotional pain in my life.
When Chad saw me in person for the first time, his face turned to a frown. He looked very upset, yet his reaction was reserved, as the English are noted for. As it turned out, Chad hadn’t really understood, when I told him I was a big girl.
