The first and only time I ever fell in love was when I met Dennis, but the strange thing about it was that I didn’t meet him face to face. I fell in love with his voice as we talked on the phone one night.
It all started when he called a wrong number and asked for someone with the same name as mine. When I answered the phone, he asked for Diane, and since that’s who I am, I said, “Hi!” I thought he was a friend of mine. We started to talk — without even knowing who we were really talking to!
We’d been speaking for a few minutes when he said something that I didn’t understand, and when I asked him about it, he suddenly realized that I wasn’t the Diane he knew. When he realized what had happened, we both laughed and he told me he was glad it had happened because he thought I had a nice voice and liked me already. I told him that I felt the same way, and he began to call every day after that for almost a week.
We finally met, and when we did, I knew that I loved him even more than I loved his voice. I could tell that he felt the same way.
Dennis and I have been dating for three years now, and we plan to get married someday. I never thought that I’d fall in love by talking to a stranger on the phone, but now that it’s happened, I couldn’t be happier. That’s how I know I’m in love.
