How We Met

We met at a local sushi bar in the neighborhood and our eyes locked immediately. I tried to impress her all the time by cooking food for her. When I got the courage to ask her out on a date, I was sadly rejected. But I stayed persistent and eventually won her heart..and her stomach over. We’ve been together since and to this day, we spend most of our time in the kitchen.

how they asked

Having a nurse as your girlfriend guarantees you two things: a personal medic always by your side and an endless amount of “you won’t believe what happened at work today” stories. Being a nurse is tough work. On a daily basis, Christine would say alarms would ring all day because patients are always trying to get off the bed and that’s an incident report waiting to happen.

So, I decided to take an unpleasant experience at the hospital and turn it into a lasting memory. With the help from the hospital staff, we scheduled Christine to come in on her off day due to “staffing shortages”. We informed her that a camera crew was on premise to shoot footage for a new company commercial. I hid in a room assigned to her and when the time came, I got off the bed triggering the bed alarm.

Christine came in the room as any nurse would and I surprised her by popping the question. Our parents and family (who secretly flew in from CA) joined us in celebration after she said yes.
