How We Met
We had overlapping friend circles in high school, but didn’t really meet until chemistry summer school junior year. We then had contemporary literature together senior year, and started hanging out right after winter break, and we’re dating by early spring.
How They Asked
I’m an interpreter and aspiring linguist, so he wrote out proposals in 32 different languages on as many red and white ribbons and hung them all over the house. When I walked in the door, the ribbons were taped all over the walls and hanging from the ceiling, and there were dozens of candles lit. He said some sweet things, we cried, and he gave me a ring. All very mushy and adorable haha.
