How We Met
We met in middle school and started out as friends. We got really close in high school, but didn’t start dating until my freshman year of college.
How They Asked
He first asked me out at my house. We had a cute picnic table in the yard next to all my dad’s plants. My parents had to get rid of the table after a big typhoon destroyed it. Then when we were home visiting (Guam) and it was the first time I had celebrated my birthday at home with my family in 8 years since I moved to Seattle. After dinner the day after my birthday, he proposed to me in the same spot he first asked me out.
