How We Met
Dounan and I met 3 years ago through the dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel (yes it works!). He was my first swipe right and we hit it off from our first date. 1 month into our relationship, I told him that I was moving to London for 6 months, which turned out to be 1 year + more… And so started our long-distance relationship from London to NYC to SF. He was incredibly supportive the entire time and I’m so incredibly thankful for him. We moved in together just about a year ago and it’s been non-stop laughter and personal growth ever since!
How They Asked
We love traveling to new places or unplugging in nature whenever possible. I planned this “glamping” trip 5 months ago and totally forgot it was coming up until I got a reminder just 2 days beforehand. We arrived at the glamp-site just around sunset and our dome tent was located in the heart of a horse sanctuary, which made this location even more serene and beautiful. I love flexing my creativity and taking cute photos as a hobby, so I definitely wanted to take a few couples shots during golden hour!
Little did I know, Dounan was plotting something for months! He randomly pointed and told me to look towards my right and in that moment, he got down on one knee!!
I was shocked, excited, and nervous all at the same time! The first thing I blurted out was “Oh my goodness! Are you nervous?!” and we both just started laughing. Needless to say, I said YES to my best friend!
We spent the rest of the night watching the sunset and enjoying each other’s company before telling our family and friends. It was such a magical weekend and I couldn’t have asked for a sillier partner to start this next chapter with!
