Iroshini and Gabriel's Engagement in FUSHIMI restaurant in Staten island

How We Met

I met him on March 30th, 2014. He came to my church to pay for our high school reunion which I was in charge of along with some of our classmates. He got lost and had to ask for my phone number through Facebook messenger. I thought he was a good looking guy. We started talking a lot after that first meeting about our life stories in regards to family, jobs, and relationships. We had a lot in common. We went to the same high school and college and did not know each other.

We officially became boyfriend and girlfriend on May 3rd, 2015. When he asked me in his car after we went salsa dancing. He said, “I can’t say that I like you because I love you, would you be my girlfriend.” We have been dating since then for over three years.

He is my best friend I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him. We plan on getting married on May 1st, 2020. Two days before our 5 year anniversary. We are high school reunion sweethearts class of 2004 port Richmond hs.

How They Asked

My partner proposed on my 33rd birthday in front of both of our families. After we cut the birthday cake, he said he had a birthday speech for me. I did know that the ring was in his trench coat. When he asked me if I remember this coat. I told him that was the coat he was wearing when I first met him in 2014. His birthday speech made me cry with tears of joy. Which led him to ask me one question Will you marry me? Of course, I said yes. This is one birthday I can never forget.
