How We Met

Dan and I work at the same company. I knew him but not well. He was very quiet and kept to himself. I’m a social butterfly. We would speak but nothing more. After ending a long term relationship I noticed he was talking to me more. Little did I know he was interested in me for over 7 years. He finally got the nerve to ask me out. We met at a winery where we just sat in the vineyard and talked for hours. The employees forgot we were there until we walked inside to pay the bill.

How They Asked

We were in Fort Lauderdale enjoying a weekend in the sun. Nothing was out of the ordinary. We spent the day at the beach playing around. Once we got to, where I thought would be dinner, he surprised me with a gondola ride. He’s always doing romantic things like this so I wasn’t suspicious. As we were returning to the dock he asked me to put on a blindfold.

He told me he invited someone special to come to have dinner with us. I get off the ride and removed my blindfold to see a huge greenery wall with the words “Will You Marry Me?” written in big cursive letters! I started to cry then I turn to him and he’s down on one need. That’s when I did the ugly cry. There were photographers, a saxophonist, and a ton of people I didn’t know. It was the best day of my life…so far.
