Jenna and Ryan
How We Met
We met online – not something that either of us would recommend. We started talking and found out each other’s likes and what we were both looking for in a partner and a relationship. We exchanged numbers a few weeks later and set up a time and place to meet once we started talking more regularly. Once we finally met I realized that this man was someone special.
How He Asked
I had bought Ryan tickets to a New England Patriots game for his birthday. We both share a love for football and he’s been a loyal fan for 15 years – and now I am a loyal fan because of him. We were sitting in Gillette watching the game when at the beginning of the third quarter Ryan nudged me to look at the light board in the corner across from our seats. Birthday announcements were streaming, anniversaries, and then an engagement announcement came up. I said to Ryan, “is that ever cute, someone is getting proposed to right now in this stadium.” The next announcement that came up was what he had planned weeks before the game. My heart started pounded and my breathing became heavier as I read – I love you Jenna Gustafson…Will you marry me???
