    I was on a business trip – flying to Hong Kong – when I heard those magic words “boarding completed”… the seat next to me was empty…and even though I was flying business class (ah the good old days ) it was the best start to my 12 hr flight.
    I got myself ready for my 2nd glass of champagne when this guy came from the back of the aircraft, loaded with books, jacket, earphones hanging from the ear – and took the seat next to me. It was like someone just took the last chocolate which you longed for since days, from you. After dropping half of the books over me and made some excuses, he finally sat himself down, just as they started to get the cabin ready for take off..
    At that point I went from super calm, to what the hell??? I decided to calm myself and ask again for the champagne I was then waiting for since 10 minutes – off course the cabin crew only wanted to get us in the air… when mr next to me, got up – went to the front of the aircraft and came back with 2 glasses of champagne. I was still having my “leave me alone” face on – but deep inside, I thought that was the sweetest thing he could have done.

    We ended up talking for almost half of the flight to Hong Kong, where after landing, exchanged business cards, said a quick goodbye and went our seperate ways.

    A few weeks later we started taking up contact by email – exchanging business contacts (we were both in simular jobs ) and decided to meet up for a drink. The year that followed, I grew more and more attracted to him, but somehow valued our short friendship more and decided it would be too risky to “make that move”

    Exactly a year later we were both in Hong Kong again and managed to fit in a dinner together, in our travel schedule. I was with my 2 most important clients… and he, the tag along. Over the dinner, the 2 women that accompanied us, made all kind of excuses to leave (they later on told me that he didn’t stop looking at me the entire dinner and they knew that 4 was a crowd) so we ended up alone in a bar, overlooking the Hong Kong sky line… it couldn’t get any more romantic than that.

    So to cut a long story short… and we all anyhow know what happened next…. ;-)

    Karsten and I are now together 4 years and on 31.12.2011 he proposed in Cape Town, on the way to Canal Walk shopping centre – on the N1 – exit Sable road (it couldn’t get more romantic than this ) luckily he was driving….

    We set a date for our wedding on 22.12.2012 and I cannot wait to sit next to him for all the rest of the travels, we will do together.

    Good day.

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

    Me and my fiance Juandre Coetzer have been engaged for over a year now and we truly want to get married but do not have the finances. He is the perfect man and I want to spend the rest of my life with him, but circumstances are not allowing us the opportunity and he is going to the airforce next year 2013 and I will not be seeing him for a while.

    It will be a dream come true to be married to this man and it will be a true blessing from God it we can receive this opportunity.

    Thank you

    Our love story started as a blind date at a death metal concert- and neither of us like death metal! We both needed to meet someone new and bring love into the equation! AND we did in because six months later our beautiful daughter was born and we became a wonderful little family- all we are missing is the tying of the knot!
