Dear John and Hank,
I’ve been a nerdfighter for long enough that I can’t even remember when I wasn’t a nerdfighter. The two of you have inspired me to do many things that I otherwise wouldn’t have done. You’ve given me a little bit of sunshine on my cloudiest days. I thank you guys for being there for me, always ready to make me smile when I most need it. And I thank you for being the catalyst for the amazing community we call Nerdfighteria.
But the biggest thing I want to thank you for is for helping me find the greatest thing I have ever experienced in my life, love. You see, awhile back I was really into vlogging, just like you guys. But I had little motivation to constantly put up videos, so I thought I would join a collab. So I hopped on the ning and looked around for collabs looking for members. I found a few and applied. Unfortunately, none accepted me due to various reasons, they had already found a member, they had already disbanded, etc. So I joined a group of Nerdfighters on the ning and we started our own, but that’s not the point to this story.
One of the collab channels I had applied to had really caught my eye, so I continued to watch their videos. One day, one of their members posted a video about how his favorite place was the town that I happened to go to college in. So, throwing caution to the wind, I commented on the video saying I lived there and that it is, in fact, awesome. And he responded.
He eventually followed me on Twitter and the two of us began @replying back and forth. I looked forward to our correspondence; there was something about him, something that was so different from anyone I had ever met. So slowly but surely, the two of us began to fall in love. Months later, after countless tweets and texts, we admitted our feelings for one another. It was incredible, feeling like that for someone. Since then, we have visiting one another many times and have met each other’s family and friends. Next week will be our six month anniversary, and I’m excited for many more months to come.
So what I really want to say is thank you for starting up this community. For if you never had, I never would have found his nerdfighter collab and eventually him. Because of you guys I met my best friend, and who I think will be the love of my life. Yeah, I know it’s pretty soon to call that. But he is unlike any other guy I have been with. And you probably understand the feeling, you just know. Plus, he’s a nerdfighter, which is a huge plus! He’s an even bigger nerd than me, which is saying something. Haha.
Thank you John and Hank. You’ve changed my life for the better in so many ways, this is just one of them.
