Fleur and Tyrue
How We Met
Tyrue and I met in 2011 through mutual friends. We exchanged numbers but never called each other or met up. In 2016, one of his fraternity brothers who is also a good friend of mine decided we should all link up for Cinco De Mayo. When I saw him, I was attached to him but he was very quiet and reserved. He was not much of a dancer but I made him dance with me all night. At the end of the night, we looked to exchange numbers but realized we already had each other’s number in our phones. The next day he called and asked me out on a date.
How He Asked
7/23/2018-The day my life changed forever. Tyrue and I prepared to celebrate our two year anniversary. We made plans to go out to dinner on 7/23/18. He told me to dress up and decided we should color coordinate wearing either white or navy. I was excited that we were going to a fancy restaurant for our anniversary. We drove to battery park in New York and Tyrue says surprise we are having an anniversary photo shoot. I still had no idea but I love pictures so I was super excited. We took pictures for about an hour and a half and my feet were beginning to hurt. So he decided we should walk to the other end of the park and upon arriving there I decided to sit on a bench that was facing the water.
As I sat there worrying about my feet hurting he was signal for all our family and friends to come out of the restaurant that was directly behind me. He stood me up and began to speak and I noticed how nervous he was. I turned around and realized all our family and friends were right there. He got on one knee and asked me to be his forever. I’m so excited to be spending the rest of my life with such a loving, caring, family-oriented man.
