I have not posted since before the final rose ceremony. I had seen the screencaps, read the commentary, but was still unsure of the outcome. I have been an Ian fan from the moment he stepped out of the limo on the first night. I posted on another thread how much I have been positively engulfed by this love story, and now that we have seen the results, I am in awe of their mutual love for one another. As witnessed on ATFR, Ian's protective boundaries did fall, and his love for Meredith became apparent. Personally, I have been with the kind of guy ABC wanted us to believe Ian was. But, I witnessed Ian become the man I always wanted for myself. One who was changed by love. He is taking advantage of a window of opportunity to travel the world, but now with his soulmate, travel companion and woman of his dreams. I am so happy for Meredith and Ian. I feel they are meant to be together. And I wanted to take this opportunity to wish them the best that love and life have to offer. And as I said in a previous post, I wish that for us all!
