How We Met

Daniel and I met on my birthday which was November 27, 2020, and boy was he completely unexpected. We met off of the internet so technically we didn’t actually meet until January 6, 2021. When we first started talking, I had just gotten out of a relationship so I was not looking for anything serious. Just friends. Daniel was very respective of that. Don’t get me wrong, he did flirt with me constantly. I eventually caught myself flirting back and then after we met in person, the rest was just history.

How They Asked

The day that Daniel popped the question was on May 4, 2021, and it was unexpected. We went hiking so I was wearing hiking clothes. I started getting dizzy. It was hot out and I have epilepsy. Daniel took me to a park called City Parked and it was located in Vallejo, CA. We decided to sit under the tree and on the grass. I am allergic to grass so as you can imagine, I was breaking out in hives. I still laugh about it to this day! I told Daniel that I thought that we should get in the car and leave. He agreed. When I walked up to the car I noticed that the doors were locked. And then I asked Daniel, “Why is the car locked?” He didn’t reply. I saw in the rearview mirror that he was on the curb and I thought that he was tying his shoes. I turned around and he was on one knee and asked me to marry him. He was shaking and I said, “YES”. I gave him a great big hug. Apparently,

a random stranger was watching the whole thing because he yelled out, “Congratulations”. To this day my fiance wishes that he proposed differently or somewhere else but I tell him absolutely not. Now we have a story to tell.
