How We Met
Steve and I met at our previous job. I knew right away that I liked him and would tell him how jealous I am of all the fun things he did with his friends. Finally he took a hint and asked for my number to invite me along with him next time. After a little time he asked me out on a date, unfortunately he was on call and about 10 minutes before our date he had to cancel. I was so disappointed but understood because we worked for the same company. We rescheduled our date and this time around I was being polite and told him I would pay. Steve got so red in the face and said “well you might have to because it looks like I forgot my wallet.” I knew he wasn’t lying just by looking at his face, I could tell he was so embarrassed! Now it’s been 5 years together and I can’t help but laugh whenever I think about it. He has never forgotten his wallet since!
how they asked
Steve and I have been together for 5 years. We talked about getting married one day, but not until I graduated college. I have always dreamed of the place I would one day get married. A gorgeous venue right on the lake with the fall leaves behind us. My mom and I stopped by the venue one day just to check it out because we happened to be passing it. It was exactly what I knew it would be an more. It had an awesome room for the guys to get ready in with a bar and pool table, which I knew steve would appreciate. When I told him about it he said it sounded like a place he would like and asked to see it in person. He asked me on a few separate occasions to show him but we never got around to it (or I never got around to it).
One day he came over and we didn’t have any plans so we decided to take a trip to see it. I didn’t think anything of it, I was just excited to show him. I was holding his hand pulling him all over the place fussing over all the spots we could get pictures. We walked around and when we got to spot where the ceremony is held he pulled me back in and got down on his knee and asked me to spend forever with him. It was dream come true; my dream man asking to spend forever with him at our dream location
