How We Met
Ulysses and I met during our freshman year of college. I remember sitting in the dorm building hallway on the phone with my friend and I see him and his cousin (that I didn’t know was his cousin at the time) walking through the hall and I get a friendly “Hey” as they kept walking LOL. Our campus was small, and we kept running into each other during passing or at the gym, and the next thing I know, we find ourselves at a social gathering where of course I end up tipping and spilling my entire drink on the table and myself & I see him in the background going “OHHHHH” with the biggest smile on his face. Shortly after, even after seeing my clumsiness in action, we took our first picture together that night and a few weeks later, we officially began dating 6 years and counting to forever 💕💕
How They Asked
Ulysses truly caught me by the ultimate surprise! For my birthday, he surprised me with a trip to St Martin which we absolutely could not wait for. 3 days into paradise after coming back from hanging out in the resort, we go to our room to relax and I see him ironing his shirts “for the week”. He then asked me if I wanted to go for a walk on the beach to see the sunset. I’m looking like a bum of course while he has a nice dress shirt on and I tell him, “well I can’t go like this! I look bad”, and he tells me, “You could never look bad”. So after I put on my dress, we get chased by the waves and get soaked of course (the irony), and watched the sun as it set. Once we started to turn back, he got down on one knee and popped the question! We celebrated with champagne and so many happy tears, the best day of our lives!!!
