Worst love story/marriage proposal ever

This has to be the worst love story/marriage proposal ever
*my comments are in blue text*

We first met on Yahoo Chat on November 17, 1998. Fate smiled on us on the day we first encountered each other. Barry had been going from room to room, just looking for someone to talk to.

(Apparently Barry isn't real selective)

He never noticed that Trish had said hello as he checked to see who was online. He spotted her greeting as he left the room. Being the gentleman that he is, he sent her a message apologizing for not replying to her greeting. They chatted for awhile, and exchanged email addresses. They added each other to their friends list on Pager. They then went their separate ways, neither knowing what fate had in store for them.

Then one day, while logged in on Pager, Barry saw Trish's handle light up. He sent her a hello.

(Ooooh the drama!)  

They spent several hours engrossed in conversation. From that day forward, their feelings for each other grew stronger. Those warm feelings turned into a burning love, all consuming.  

(Sure it wasn't from spending all your free time sitting on your arses at the computer?)

The more they talked, the deeper in love they became.

As their love blossomed, they realized that they could not spend the rest of their lives without each other. On January 5th, 1999, at 6:15AM Eastern Standard Time,
Trish received an email advising her of a virtual flower delivery.  

(Hello Barry, just wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a new word. You might not be familiar with it. EVER HEAR OF TACKY???)  

Those virtual flowers would change their lives forever. For the card carried the simple words,
"Will you marry me?"
Trish tearfully accepted.

(I'd be crying too if I was proposed to via EMAIL)

Barry and Trish hope to wed on January 5, 2000.

Barry and Trish enjoyed our first meeting on March 5, 1999! 

 (Nothing like agreeing to marry someone you've NEVER EVEN MET) 

It was a wonderful experience, and a great time for both of us!

Barry will be leaving his little island paradise to return home on September 2nd! We're both looking forward to his homecoming!

Change in plans! Barry won't be coming home on Sept 2nd now. His boss felt that his presence was required longer on Gilligan's Island. Now he's returning on Sept 23rd.

(Sure, he is. Does his boss also go by another name like: WIFE or GIRLFRIEND?)

People scare me.
