OUR STORY 

A Non-Traditional Love Story

Love stories rarely begin with a block button, but Essence and Eric's story takes an unexpected turn. They crossed paths on Facebook, quickly becoming good friends. They delved into discussions about faith, church, and their circle of friends. Discovering shared beliefs and values strengthened their connection, but as their friendship deepened, Essence found herself developing feelings that she wasn’t prepared for.

In a rush of panic, she cut off communication, leaving Eric confused and searching for answers. Yet, amidst the silence, a glimmer of hope remained. Eric, undeterred, found solace in knowing he still had access to Essence's Instagram world. He reached out sporadically, hoping to unravel the mystery behind her sudden withdrawal. Months passed before Essence reemerged, ready to confront her fears and give their relationship another chance.

With cautious optimism, they rekindled their bond, cautiously exploring their feelings once more. Meeting in person, they discovered that the barriers of the digital world melted away, revealing the true essence of their connection. Through the trials of distance and doubt, Essence and Eric emerged stronger, their love a testament to the resilience and the unwavering power of second chances.

Just a small gift to help our plans.
