How We Met

He has lived 15 minutes away from my house his whole life and yet we met at NYU when I was a freshman and he was a sophomore! Considering I have been dancing since I was 4 years old, it’s just the most amazing twist of fate that we met at his dance practice. My friend and he were on the same dance team and I was visiting her. We went to a nearby party together where we got talking or as he says ‘bantering’, and the rest is history!

How They Asked

We have always wanted to go Tao for dinner ever since we were college kids and post-COVID it was definitely at the top of the list. October 9th seemed like as good a day as any to go to dinner. After we left the restaurant, his dad called and asked us to meet him and his friend at Battery Park. How could I say no to his dad? He made me look to the side of the road where his dad would supposedly “drive up from” and when I looked back, he was on his knee at the same place where we had our first date!
