Romancing the Storm: Katrina once brought them together, then Sandy reunited them

Fernanda Meier and Emanuel Boseman The NY Post‘s Tim Donnelly has written another heartwarming story about finding love amid the wreckage of Hurricane Sandy.

“Emanuel Boseman was panicked. He was stranded in a tiny 50-square-foot second-floor storage unit in Coney Island as Sandy pushed ocean waters into the building, completely flooding the first floor.

He stared at his cellphone, which was getting spotty service, and nervously debated dialing his ex-girlfriend Fernanda Meier.

He didn’t know who else to call, but they hadn’t spoken in months. Would she even take his call?”

Continued…

“Five years ago, it was a hurricane that first brought them together. On a mild October night, Emanuel popped into an Atlanta lounge for a drink; Fernanda was there celebrating two of her friends’ birthdays.

“He walked past me smelling super-awesome,” Fernanda says. “I decided I would follow him to the bar.”

She struck up a conversation, trying to show off in front of the tall, fit guy with long dreadlocks, who had caught her eye.

“I asked him what brought him to Atlanta. All he said was ‘Katrina,’?” Fernanda says. “I didn’t really push it beyond that.”

Emanuel, now 32, saw a birthday cake on the bar and told Fernanda it was his birthday, too.

“She didn’t believe me, so I showed her my driver’s license,” he says.

For Fernanda, also 32, finding a decent guy in Atlanta’s “12-to-1” ratio of women to available men was a rarity.

“He was just a really cool, laid-back guy,” she says. “Speaking with him, I could tell he had read books and had listened to music that didn’t have all curse words.”

      She’d be a fool to take him back. He seems to be using her. Once the Sandy aftermath wears off, he’ll go back to his old ways and attitude.

      Would they have re-connected if not for the storm. God tries to break apart what we try to keep together. I hope she really prays and see if that is who God wants for her.

      So I read that whole story and all I can say is:

      So yall went from not talking to each other to him sleeping in her bed two days later after she picked him up? Some chics be setting themselves up for failure. Let the dude at least prove something to you, wtf. :no:

      Best of luck to them. :shrugs:

      Gigi, they broke up in July. They dated since Katrina. They got back together after Sandy.

      lovezoe says:

      According to the timeline, they broke up in April. She last saw him in July. We as women have to cherish ourselves. Not give ourselves to a man because we have a long history, he says he is sorry. Our bodies are our temples, we dont need to be dropping it low and spreading it wide just because.

      Yeah, they got back together THE DAY AFTER Sandy. Funny, he didn’t think to call her before he was stranded and homeless.

      ReadingIsFundamental says:

      Everything about this story says she is insecure and dumb and he is an opportunist. He must have burned a lot of bridges if the only person he can call in the event of an emergency is his ex-girlfriend that he feels may or may not take his call.

      I hope I’m wrong. (usually I’m not haha)

      He only wants her back because shes the only heaux he knew in NY that didnt lose power and still had her Sattelite tv. Lol If it was me, he’d stay on the couch and Id drive him to the FEMA truck to register for some money. Pooooof be gone, with your good cologne smelling behind!

      AND, I’m a little ol’school. I’m turned off that she followed him in the club and made the first pass. If I’m with someone, I want to know they had the manly instinct within them to come talk to me. I don’t want to ever have it in the back of my mind that we are only together because I put myself out there first. It is just a personal preference and has worked for me.

      This is beautiful! Sometimes realtionships go through tests. We are human and everyone has taken something or someone for granted at one point. Sounds like he was reminded of what is really important.
