Engagement Proposal Ideas in Great Falls Park, Maryland

How We Met

We met in high school when we were 16, I transferred schools halfway through the year and we were in the same homeroom. We became friends pretty much right away but didn’t start dating until senior year. After high school, I went to college and he enlisted in the military, turning our relationship long distance. After about a year and a half of me being away at college and him being in the military, we’d gone through 2 months of writing letters as our only form of contact, many months of facetime dates and short visits where I spent almost as much time at the airport as I did with him. He finally came home on leave (for a whole 2 weeks!)

How They Asked

So for since joining the military, he hadn’t been home in a little over a year. When he finally did come home, right away he said we need to go on a date to Great Falls Park, which is where we had our first date back in high school and also the last date we went on before he left for basic training.

While we were there after hiking for a bit we found a nice spot to take a minute and admire the view. Before I knew it he was getting down on one knee asking me to spend forever with him.
