How We Met
I came out late in life and was starting to get nervous that I would never meet the person who would be that “perfect person” for me. After I came out, I decided that since the world had changed as far as the dating game goes, I would try internet dating apps and see if I could find anyone. After several failed encounters on these apps, I matched with Stephen on Tinder. It truly is a “Tinderfella Story”.
How They Asked
I had always told him that I wanted to wait until the three year mark before we got engaged. In October of 2017 we had gotten into a small fight and the next day he sent me an edible arrangement to apologize, even though I should have been the one apologizing to him. This is when I knew he was the right person for me. I decided to wait until Christmas, his favorite holiday, to propose. On Christmas day we exchanged all of our gifts and then I pointed out an ornament that I snuck onto the tree and told him that this was his final gift from me. He started to open it and inside was the ring, hidden away under a piece of tissue paper that was taped to a silver bookmark. As he pulled the bookmark out to look, the ring appear and I got on one knee to pop the question. The rest, as they say, is history!
