Anastasia and Jake

How We Met

I am originally from a small island in the Pacific Ocean called Saipan. During my senior year of high school, we had men and women in the Navy come in and visit our school one day. I first saw my fiance in the hallway and instantly thought, “Oh my gosh, I want him.” He was the most handsome man I have ever seen. After I got his attention, we exchanged contact information, and he left back to Japan where he was stationed. From that day forward, we started talking constantly over Skype. After about five months of talking, we lost touch for about a year. But when we got reconnected again, it was like we have never stopped. We talked and Skyped almost everyday. Finally, the day came where I flew to Japan to meet him again. We had our first official date and have been officially together since.

How He Asked

“After about two years of long distance talking, I flew to Japan to meet him for the second time in person. We then had our first date at Chili’s on his Naval base. We hit it off instantly. Exactly one year later, we decided to recreate our first date in Winchester, VA. He then told me that he got a free cake by telling the waitress that it was my birthday. (But it wasn’t really my birthday.) Then they came out singing happy birthday, and when they were done someone came out with a plate saying “Marry Me” with ring in the middle.
