Paige and Matt
How We Met
I was struggling to work through issues with my divorce and made a post on an anonymous app to express some of my frustrations. Matt saw the post so he reached out to give some much needed encouragement. Without knowing anything about each other, we began talking and seemed to get along really well, so after a few days, we decided to meet up for lunch. We were fast friends and it felt like we had known each other for a long time.
How They Asked
We walked around downtown Alton and went to dinner at Chez Marilyn in Alton to see his grandma. We went to Riverview Park, where we sat at the lookout for a while and then walked around a gazebo. While we were talking in the gazebo, Matt got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was beautiful and intimate and I am so thrilled to be Matt’s fiance!
