How We Met
Chris and I met on a dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. However, we did have 200 mutual friends on Facebook when we matched. So I felt very comfortable meeting him. Our first date was to a local bar in town and it was trivia night. Somehow I didn’t scare him away when he realized Trivia and random knowledge wasn’t my thing. We went on a couple more dates but I was 24 trying to figure out adulting and Chris was 28 and was already there. So he understood that was a tad intimidating and was so understanding when I told him I wasn’t there yet. I also was getting over a college boyfriend and didn’t want to rush into something else. I also didn’t really realize the love I deserved. Chris told me he hoped he was around when I realized how special I was.
9 months later we ran into each other and Chris took me on a date and we did all of my favorite things in ocean city, md. Putt putt, boardwalk arcade games, fav dinner spot and the rest is history.
How They Asked
Every Christmas Chris likes to plan a date so we can enjoy the time together before things get hectic so I thought it was going to be like the other date. Throughout the day he gave me clues that lead me to the next date activity. We did all of our favorite dates and important dates in our relationship. We made it to the arcade on the ocean city, md Boardwalk. We always walk down on the pier because the beach and ocean are two of my favorite things. The pier was empty and he started talking to me about our future and how much he loved me. Still clueless bc we always talk like this. And a couple of moments later he was down on one knee.
Between doing a little happy dance, asking if he is sure, I said YES!! My brother was hiding and got the best pictures. After this, the next clue led me to our family’s restaurant where all my friends and family were there to celebrate.
