How We Met
We both swiped right on Tinder the week after we graduated high school. We started chatting and found out that we were both headed to the same small university in a different province, would be living in the same residence, and that we had a lot in common (including my middle name being his last name!) We continued chatting all through the summer and met up our first day at university. A week later, we went for a walk and he asked me to be his girlfriend.
How They Asked
The day after my birthday, we were setting up our Christmas tree in our apartment in preparation for our 5th Christmas together. We had Christmas music playing in the background and were eating takeout, and I couldn’t get the ribbon to sit right on the tree so I crawled underneath to fix it. Apparently he had the ring in his pocket and had been working up the courage to ask all evening. I came out and realized the tree skirt was wrinkled and went under the tree again. When I came back out, he was on one knee beside the tree and asked me to marry him! It was just us and absolutely perfect.
