Default Have you met your MWI in person??

Good afternoon everyone!!

So my question is have you met your MWI in person and if not how long have you been in a relationship with them? I have been with my MWI for over 6 months as a couple and we have not met face to face yet due to distance and money

Yes I have met mine and I plan to visit as often as I can. The first visit was amazing and really enhanced the feelings we both already knew we have. I was so nervous but it was worth it. Hope you guys get to meet up soon.

Yes, but I did wait a year to meet him face-to-face. I wish I didn't wait so long though Our first visit was the best day of my life!

Yes we were friends for about six months first, then became a couple a month or two before he was released to the halfway house. we then met about 4 months after : ) It was hard waiting but Im glad I did as it was a lot nicer meeting him on the outside

I got a special visit a month after we started talking and have been visiting every 2/3 weeks since.
We were just talking about this at visit last weekend, and he saved his visit pass from that first weekend, he said he knew it was going to change his life.

I was staff, so we met in person, obviously. But because of my annoying anxiety about following rules and keeping my job, we didn't get the perk of getting to know each other on any personal level in person. So after he left it was still months of writing and phone calls before we had our first visit, and it felt like meeting him for the first time. Very weird.

Yes. We have met. We had known each other for almost a year and a half or more by the time we met. I wanted to make sure so I planned a trip to see him. The first time however some things had happened and he was in the SHU. We had talked about possibly doing it another time...and then I was like "NO! I'm doing this!" I drove all night and morning to see him for a freaking hour. So worth it. I remember walking down the hallway to all the little rooms with glass and he was at the end. I was so nervous. I peaked my head around and saw him standing. Instantly I calmed down and I got excited. It was awesome. He was so nervous he jumped into his seat! lol! I loved it. Anyways...sorry for reminiscing yes we have visited and I will be visiting more. I would like to in the future move closer to him after school and be able to visit every weekend. That would be amazing. But until then, it's every couple of months.

We were writing for 4 months when I visited my guy. It was like a blur. I was so into him, I barely remember the visit. I'm going back this weekend. It's only a 3 hour drive, but my car needed some work, and I just had it fixed. I can't wait.

YES I HAVE SEEN MY MAN! I. saw him today and going back next weekend YAY I saw him about a few months shy of our first year anniversary. I was sooo nervous!!! When he came up to me(i was sitting) i got up to hug(semi-hug) him but i couldnt look him in the eye due to nerves. and for several minutes after that, i still couldn't look him in the face, my legs were shaken, i was a ball of nerves lol. I thought that he would think I was ugly and unattractive. My bae talked to me and calmed my nerves and now when i see him I'm all up in his face and personal space ready for my hug and kiss!!

We became a couple a few weeks before he was released after a 7 year prison sentence. I then flew overseas to meet him a few months into our relationship and once he was in the halfway house

Just wanted to add, our first 4 years of visits were behind glass. Last month I had my first contact visit with him, it was amazing! All I thought it would be and more! Just made me want to be with him more, if that could even be possible.

. Haven't met yet but we are doing the paperwork in order to get me added as a visitor. I filled out the wring form (old date) the first time so THERE was a wasted month but have since sent back the correct form so maybe in a month or two I'll be able to visit her for the first time face to face. We've known each other for 3 months.
