Amanda and Dylan
How We Met
We met while we were both in college! I was wrtiting a paper in the computer lab and he walked in! Dylan has a beautiful smile and I was attracted to it right from that moment! I didn’t realize how long I had been staring at him when he asked me, “why are you staring at me?” I quickly regained my attention and of course denied that I was staring at him! I ran out of the computer lab, mortified that I had just stared at him for so long! But I was so happy he called me out on it because Dylan would then talk to me more around campus,we eventually started dating and have been in love ever since! So when someone tells you to stop staring at people, it might just be the best move you make in your whole life!
how they asked
I was a senior in college and student teaching preschool for my last semester! Dylan emailed the teacher I was co-teaching with and asked if it was possible for him to propose while I was teaching one day! (Oh, and by the way, Dylan’s a teacher, too!) My co-teacher said absolutely and managed to set me up with a fake meeting so that Dylan could set up! I walked back down to my classroom where all my students were sitting at tables waiting for me to come back! I walked in and was recorded the whole way in the classroom! Dylan made a movie-maker presentation with songs and pictures of us over the last few years! When the video was over I turned around and there all my preschool students were holding the letters to spell out, “will you marry me?” Being preschoolers, of course it was misspelled and that made it all the more enjoyable! Dylan sent one of my students in from the other room with flowers for me and he followed behind him! Dylan got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life loving him! It was amazing and truly a day I will remember forever!
