How We Met
The end of 2015-beginning of 2016 we found each other on a dating app (POF.) Never meeting, we texted a bit until we both wound up involved in other relationships. Fast forward to January 2017 I was back on POF and came across him again. I decided to message him & thankfully he responded. A couple days afterward I finally got up the courage to actually have dinner with him. Out of the handful of dates and even relationships I have been involved in over the years, this was by far the most comfortable I had ever been soo quickly with someone. I like to say it was pretty much love at first sight (I had thee strongest urge to tell him I loved him but was so freaked out about how soon I was feeling this way.) We tried to find every free moment we had to spend it together.
Two months into it he asked me to be his girlfriend the night before I was going to join him on a work trip across the USA. Of course I said YES! That trip not only did we learn a lot about each other and experience one of the most amazing sceneries ever (The Grand Canyon,) but we also became pregnant.. haha. Guess the Grand Canyon makes you fall in love and have babies (we obviously didn’t know that yet. Once returning home he just blurted out that he loved me. It just felt soo natural and right.
November 2017 we had our son James. January 2019 we found out we were pregnant again, with a girl due in September. Long story short, our story happened very quickly but it all just felt/feels right. I have never felt more in love/comfortable with someone in my life. We may only have been together for 2.5 years but it feels like we have been together forever!
How They Asked
We had planned a maternity beach session for our baby girl at the beginning of August. He had been planning more than just that apparently! We showed up for our shoot in Avalon, began to take a few photos all while he kept just telling me how beautiful I was and how much he loves me.
As we were taking our last few photos, the photographer had us facing each other and he began to tell me how much he loved me and all the great things he never forgets to tell me on a daily basis (“you are beautiful, I love you soo much.”) Then he told me he wanted to be with me forever and asked if I would marry him (being nervous he said it before he actually knelt down, so I responded “seriously” because this is something he says to me time to time anyway.. haha) As he began to kneel down he took the ring out and we both started crying. Of course, I responded YES!
