    Born in the South and Raised by Yankees!

    Greeting Y'all!

    I'm from the hot & steamy South where we say things like "I'm fixin' to go", "cut on the light" and "Bless her pea-pickin heart". I was born in the South and raised by Yankees (Chicago & Minnesota) so I have a rather unique outlook on the world around me.

    I'm in a LDR with a wonderful man from Finland and we began our journey together just 7 weeks ago! My SO discovered this site and we're both excited to be here and want to learn as much as we can from all of you!

    I'll talk to you again soon, if the Lord's willin' and the creek don't rise!

    Thanks! You met my SO back on July 6th when he introduced himself. He's not far from Helsinki.

    I never imagined I'd fall for a guy that lived halfway across the world! :-)

    Hey, welcome to the forums!

    I used to date a Finnish guy as well. I feel you... I mean I wish you all the best

    Seriously, though, I secretly feel glad when Finns/Finns' SOs join this site. Enjoy your stay :3
