Caroline and Marco
How We Met
Hmm… Let’s go back to year 2002. I was only in year 9 when I was first introduced to Marco, and his best friend was dating my family friend. We were the extra support during their dates. A few years flew by, and on many odd occasions, I’d run into Marco at a party or a night out on the town with my girlfriends. It was always hi and bye; he did ask me out once, but I never heard from him after that. I think I was too young for him, and he was too old for me.
It wasn’t until 4 years ago, when I was on my way to a very fun night out with my beautiful friends, that we would see each other again. I was getting a drink at the bar with my best friend, and I excused myself to reach for a tissue. Then, this guy who didn’t like waiting in line said to me in the most smarty-pants way, “I hope you don’t fall.” I looked up, only to realize that the rude boy talking to me happened to be Marco! He was caught off guard when he realized after so many years how cute I was. We did exchange numbers, and for the last 4 years, we haven’t stopped chasing each other. He keeps me on my toes and he has been my rock.
How He Asked
So here I am, on the edge of a rock looking down at the river and the beautiful mountains pretending to be Rose in Titanic, when the love of my life caught me by surprise! He was on one knee asking me to spend the rest of my life with him.
