How We Met
In 2014 we had a mutual friend who thought we should meet! Our mutual friend, one other person, and the two of us met at an Applebees and had dinner together! It was karaoke night and I tried to get him to sing with me but he wouldn’t, which is funny because he is the outgoing one. We had a lot of fun and we immediately hit it off. About a week later he asked me to be his girlfriend and about two years later we moved in together!
How They Asked
For Christmas he got me tickets to see Michael Bolton in concert, I LOVE Michael Bolton. I was so happy! The concert was on February 6, 2019! I wore a nice dress and we went out for a nice dinner beforehand! He had told me not to stand on his left side because he hurt his arm at work and didn’t want me to accidentally bump into it. Little did I know that was not true and he was hiding the ring in his jacket pocket and didn’t want me to discover it! Now we had been together for 5 years so I was thinking how perfect it would be if he proposed here but never in a million years thought it actually would!! We got to the venue and found our seats then he sent me away to go get something before the show started. This was so he could talk to the lady next to us and tell his plan and ask her to record it for us!!
About halfway through the show, Michael Bolton went on an intermission and then when he came back out he came out in the crowd. We had floor seats about 10 rows back and he came out 4 rows in front of us and was singing When A Man Loves A Woman! I was in shock!!! It was so amazing!!! I leaned to him and I said I couldn’t believe this is happening! He whispered back to me oh you just wait. It didn’t register so I told him to take a few pics of Michael while he was so close! He did! Then I noticed him give his phone to the lady next to him which was strange and then before I knew it he was down on one knee before me! I was even more shocked and couldn’t even speak! I just nodded my head yes and cried! The people surrounding us cheered and congratulated us. It was so romantic and perfect. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect way!
