Paige and Blake
How We Met
My fiancé Blake & I ened up meeting one another in a way neither of us would have imagined. We have been together for just over 3 years now, which can be seen as extremely long when it comes to dating apps! Blake & I actually met on Tinder! Yes, Tinder. Everyone portray’s Tinder has the sold called, “hook up” app, & for the most part that’s true! Well back when it was a new thing, I had downloaded it out of curiosity. I had never been a girl to meet up with some guy I had met online before, & I didn’t intend to, or so I thought! I actually did end up deleting the app & forgetting about it for awhile. After about 2 months, I redownloaded it because my friends all had it at this point, so I decided to have another go at it. Without doing so, I never would have met Blake! He had messaged me with a really sweet message in saying, “you have a gorgeous smile”, & I thought that was really sweet! From here, we just started to chat off & on through text, which eventually led to a group date in meeting each other for the first time! The entire thing was so easy with one another & so comfortable that we hit it off right away! More dates added up from there & he eventually asked me to be his girlfriend about a month into dating. The rest is history!
how they asked
Sunday, June 11th was a bit of a rainy, cloudy, summer day. I remember the weather perfectly because my now Fiancé Blake & I wanted to walk around Lake Calhoun, a gorgeous lake in Minneapolis, MN. The rain hadn’t started yet, so we decided to walk around the lake as far as we could get. The walk didn’t last long, & we ended up getting poured on! We had to cut our walk short. So, from here, we went home to our new apartment, with which we moved in together about a month before. It was a normal Sunday night (or so I thought) with us making dinner together. We were almost just getting done with dinner, when Blake got up to go do something. I didn’t think anything of it, because at this time I was starting to clear the table. He then called me into the living room where he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand! I had never been more caught off guard! He then told me he loved me & asked me to be his wife! I remember crying & shaking & saying “YES!” I was in shock! He then told me he wanted to do it earlier that day at the lake, but the weather ruined the moment. So he decided to regardless in our new home together, & I wouldn’t have had it any other way! It was absolutely perfect!
