Mickey and Tom
How We Met
We actually met on the dating website Plenty of Fish. Talked a few times on the phone and then decided to meet for a drink and hit it off instantly. He asked me on a second date for lunch a couple days later. And the 3rd date he brought roses and took me to a nice dinner. We are both in our 40’s and have never been married and neither of us have any kids. Both are rare at our age. I felt a great connection and chemistry with him from the start. The way he treats me like a lady and is always such a gentleman was so welcomed after years of dating men that didn’t know how to treat a woman or were only looking for one thing. We became exclusive after a few dates and i was excited to find out more about him and get to really know him. I felll in love with him after only a few months of spending all my time with him. We decided to move in together after about 6 months. I had always heard people say “sometimes you just know” with the right Person. Well i just knew with Tom. He showed his love to me in so many ways and still after 2 years brings me home flowers about once a week!
how they asked
After 2 years of being together, We were on vacation and It was almost sunset and he asked me if i wanted to go to the beach one last time before our vacation was over and of course i said yes. We were sitting on the beach together watching the ocean and the sunset and he turned to me and said “I think we should go to Hawaii over Christmas…..” and pulls out a beautiful ring and says “and get married”. He got down on one knee in front of me and said “Michelle Lee Funk, will you marry me?” And of course I said YES! I knew we had talked about getting married someday ( i wanted to make sure we were both working toward the same goals). But I was seriously in shock when he proposed! I really had no idea he was going to do it on our vacation. Since of my friends even asked me before we were leaving for vacation if i thought he was going to propose and i said oh no, he’ll probly wait till Christmas to do that. I am so happy he did it in such a beautiful setting and I am over the moon excited about finally, after 44 years of dreaming about marrying my prince charming, getting to start planning all the fun details of the special day. I smile every day knowing that someday soon i will be his wife and our fairy tale is not just a dream. He makes me the happiest woman in the world and i am so blessed that he came into my life!
