How We Met
I dated his best friend first when we were all in college (oops).
How They Asked
We’ve been long-distance our entire relationship, and for one Christmas when I was dead broke I wrote him a jar of notes – things I loved about him, things I wanted us to do together, memes I knew he’d like, etc. He insists it’s been his favorite gift from me, and when he proposed in quarantine he took the notes out of the jar and scattered them around the room. He put his own note in the jar and let me find the scene, and when I was done reading it he was behind me on one knee.
