1996 - 1997

"How would I get to meet people like myself?" Being a predominantly Roman Catholic country, society wasn't exactly forgiving of people like me. I didn't drink or smoke so that make going to bars difficult. To complicate things, I was a Seventh-day Adventist and was studying in a boarding school that was like boot camp where everybody knew everyone else.

Then I discovered the World Wide Web. You have to understand that access to the internet was not as widespread as it is now (in the country). I was home only during the weekends and that was the only time I had access to the Web. I started searching for email sites where I could correspond with PLU (People Like Me) and hopefully hook up with them.

I can't remember how many guys I met this way but 2 of them eventually became a couple and are still together. Thats more than  15yrs!
