How We Met
David and I went to the same college but never ran into each other until one night when we were at the same party. He had added me on social media a few days before, but we didn’t get to dance that night. However, we stayed in touch and he would write me every day to see what I was up to. One day, I told him my plans and he insisted on going all the way to Queens with me. We took the train together, chatted it up and danced A LOT. The next day he was even more attentive and asked me out on an “official date”. We watched a scary movie, which turned into me laughing and laughing for hours with him. From that moment on, I knew he was the one!
How They Asked
We traveled to Greece to celebrate our five-year anniversary in October. We stayed in Athens and from there we went to Mykonos and then Santorini (a dream come true). We walked around, made a few stops and ended up at a really cute restaurant – there’s so many that it was hard to choose one but we did great. The next morning we woke up super early to watch the sunrise. David rented a car so we drove from our hotel to Oía Santorini.
When we arrived, we were looking for those Instagramable spots I had saved and showed him for months. We explored the island and found a boardwalk with the Mediterranean Sea in the background. David said that was a nice spot for a picture together so he set up his GoPro a bit far to get a good angle, but I didn’t suspect anything because we had been doing this during the whole trip. As I was fixing my hair and fighting with the wind, I turned around and he was on his knees! He gave me that sweet look and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. At that moment, I was completely shocked and crazy happy so I cried and cried while hugging him tight!! ♥️
