How We Met
Terryl and I met the first week of Freshman year in high school. I had a crush on him since the first time I saw him. We ended up in a few classes together and shared some mutual friends. I was “introduced” to him a few times, but Terryl never caught the hint. We finally became good friends at the beginning of our Junior year. It wasn’t until the end of our Junior year when the stars finally aligned and we started dating. Terryl and I started college together at UTC, but after a year and a half, he transferred to another college. We did long-distance for 3 years. After we both graduated, we moved back home and in together. Last year we moved away and bough a house together. We have been together for almost 9 and a half years now.
How They Asked
About a year ago I found my perfect ring and starting dropping hints to him about what it looked like. Three months before he proposed, Terryl found the exact ring I wanted and bought it for me. We were on a cruise to Mexico when he proposed. He planned the whole thing by himself and kept it a secret from everyone we knew. It was our last day at sea when he proposed. When we booked the cruise, I told him how excited I was to watch the sunset at sea since I find sunsets so beautiful and romantic. We were outside watching the sunset when he started to tell me how much he loved me. Then he dropped down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him.
