How We Met

We had both been on several failed first dates and relationships and we’re losing hope on finding our partners. We tried Match.com after both hearing of friends having met their wives/husbands on there. I had never tried online dating and I was very nervous!

I ran several background checks on him to make sure there wasn’t anything I should be worried about. We meet for our first date at Dave & Busters and the rest is history! He was/is the most caring, gentle soul! He loves my in a way I could never have imagined being loved.

How He Asked

My now fiancé, Ryan, and I had been together for about a year and a half and we noticed that most of our pictures together were selfies! We love to take pictures to document our travels and adventures but usually have to take them ourselves.

He arranged for our photographer friend to take pictures of us so we had some nice ones to put up at our house. My fiancé arranged all the spots to take pictures. He took us to an old, secluded train bridge in the desert where he and I often went and talked about our hopes, dreams and futures.

It was on that bridge that we fell in love and I knew he was the man I would spend my life with. As we were taking pictures, he said he needed a break to fix his boot. He then pulled a beautiful ring out.

He asked me if I would make him the happiest man alive and spend my future with him. I burst into tears and, of course, said yes to my best friend and the love of my life.
