Our Story

Rex & Carmen are high school sweethearts. Rex saw Carmen for the first time at a mutual friend’s party running around and knew right there and then that she was crazy. It was NOT  love at first sight. 

Yet they met and talked on AIM nonstop. They went to one high school dance and she wasn’t too impressed. They continued to slide into each other’s AIMs and she agreed to go to another high school dance with Rex a year later.

This time, Carmen was impressed by Rex’s dancing and really got to know his personality after being friends for a year.

That night, Rex decided to make his move by calling Carmen after the dance. He asked how her feet were doing after all that dancing.

After a few months of dating, Rex asked her to be his girlfriend, but less than a year into their relationship, Carmen had to move to Vegas with her family. Rex told Carmen that breaking up would not be an option for him. Their relationship was always built on strong and open communication and that has never changed. After 11 years of long distance, they moved in together with their kitty Simba. The rest is history.
