How We Met

It was the beginning of the Covid lockdown. I couldn’t meet people in any traditional way so I turned to online dating. Even though I live in Florida I extended my search to Georgia as well and I found this beautiful woman who had the qualities and personality I was looking for. I did think she would respond but she did. That was on July 8th. We’ve talked for hours a day everyday since. I got to know her and when we met in person for the first time, I knew the moment we met that she was woman for me. I quickly fell in love with her and proposed to her later that year.

How They Asked

Alina and her family went to Orlando for a vacation and they invited me to join them. Unbeknownst to her, I got us tickets to Magic Kingdom. She already knew I was going to propose but she didn’t know when. Just as we arrived, I convinced her that we should take pictures in front of Cinderella’s Castle. She doesn’t like having picture taken but she agreed to do it just for me. I took a moment to pull the photographer aside to get her in on my plan and she knew just what to do and how to get the right angles. We took a few pictures then I turned to Alina and told her that I knew she was the woman for me. I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. Lucky for me she said yes!
