How We Met
James & I met back in 2016. I’d just started a new job at a big company & I was with my mentor training when he walked in the room. First impression, not so great between the both of us. We genuinely disliked one another but, since we worked together, we had to keep it professional. Time went on & we started to get along. We became friends & work just got a lot easier having to talk to someone who’s been in the company longer than I have. Then I learned he was in a relationship, an unhappy one that is. It didn’t last long until they broke up. Him & I became closer & we started dating officially a few months after that in 2017.
How They Asked
We visited New York City with a good friend of mine from highschool. On the 2nd day on November 10, 2019, we visited Central Park where we had a “photoshoot”. He asked me to face the other way so I could twirl around for a shot. Classic me, I started getting frustrated in the middle of it because he kept telling me to do it over & over. But on the last try, as I spun around, there he was. On one knee, holding up the most beautiful ring, asking me to marry him. It was such a dream to be engaged to the love of my life in one of the most beautiful cities in the world & I could not have asked for anything better.
