Nash and Mike

Proposal Ideas Philadelphia, PA

How We Met

We first met in high school, when we were about 14 years old (freshman year). We had the same gym class. We did have a crush on each other. But the girls who I became friends with were mean. Which mean I became mean. And I didn’t treat mike very nicely!

We stopped talking after a few months. Fast forward to senior year, I had gone to mike and apologized for being so mean. But he accepted my apology and we quickly became close friends.

I had asked Mike to prom. I needed a friend to go with and he said he was more than happy to. It wasn’t until then we exchanged number. We became very close, very quickly. And we found that we had so much in common with each other. After two years of talking and building up our friendship, he finally asked me out the day before my birthday (03.12.2013).

How They Asked

6 years later and we took a trip to Philly. I had just graduated and wanted a quick weekend getaway. We had made reservations to Fogo de Chão steak house. But I had become very upset because I really thought he was going to propose. And it just did not happen. He chickens out at the restaurant. He wanted to take a photo in front of the restaurant, but I was so upset, and my red lipstick was smeared all over my face, that I told him no. He wanted to take me to a park that lit up at night, but we couldn’t get a cab.

As we were walking, he saw a train station and suggested we take the train there. I thought he was joking, but when he told me to look up the directions, I felt he was serious about taking the train at 11:30 at night (he wasn’t serious). As I looked up the directions, he called my name and that’s when I saw him in his knee! I had no idea what he said, but all I knew is that at that moment, I said YES to my forever!

Not to mention as it was happening, a car filled with two women were cheering us on, a bachelorette party had run to us to congratulate us, and a homeless man was insistent and getting money for pampers even after we gave him money ??‍♀️?

This would happen to us! Haha
