How We Met
Robert and I met 5 years ago by swiping right on a dating app. We quickly found out that we are way more alike than we originally thought. We found out that we were even born 4 years and 4 days apart. We started dating in September 2016, and have been inseparable since. We quickly moved in together and adopted a pit bull mix puppy. We travel the world often together and he is my favorite travel partner. Every year we plan a big trip the weekend of our birthdays and go all out because we have 4 days of celebrations. Swiping right was the best decision I could have ever made.
How They Asked
One day my friend asked if I wanted to plan a double date night for her and her husband and me and Robert. I was excited to plan this fun double date, then the coronavirus hit. On April 4th I asked Robert if we could have a date at home since we could not go out for our original date night and he agreed. He set up a “restaurant date night” in our living room where he sat up a “bar” with drinks, then sat us in “private seating.”
He made a four-course meal with personalized menus. Dinner was delicious, and when we got to dessert he had a surprise dessert called “126.96.36.199. Dessert.” He told me to close my eyes and he would go get the dessert. When I opened my eyes he was on one knee saying “our birthdays are 4 years and 4 days apart, and we have been together for 4 years, so on 04/04 I thought would be the perfect time to ask you to be my wife 4-ever.”
