Love Stories: Janie Loves Bob

Patch asked our readers for love stories on Valentine's Day and Janie Hensz-Gallagher didn't disappoint with this tale of internet-age love.

Texas native Janie Hensz Gallagher couldn't wait to tell us about the love of her life: 

"I'm originally from Texas and Bob and I met on AOL in September of 1999," wrote Janie. "We have the same birthday (month, day, and year), which is how we met."

The relationship started out slow via computer the first month, but progressed to every-other-day phone calls by October. By the end of the month, Bob had proposed – before they'd even met in person! She, of course, accepted.

"We met for the first time in November," wrote Janie. "For Thanksgiving, he flew to Texas to meet me, my family, and to put the ring on my finger."

Janie and Bob were married by the end of the year and she moved to be with her man.

"Thirteen years later, we are still happily married," said Janie. "I LOVE YOU BOB!!!"
