Kristen and Nicholas
How We Met
We met through friends in 2013 – his cousin was dating my college roommate’s friend. We dated for a few months and it didn’t work out. Almost two years later I saw him on Tinder and swiped left. He says he swiped right but texted me anyway and 2 1/2 years later he proposed!
How He Asked
We were supposed to go ice skating in Bryant Park that day and it was snowing so I wasn’t sure I wanted to go. He wasn’t pushy at all and in the end I figured we should go anyway. We met our friend Bill and Nick wasn’t feeling well so he said I should go out on the ice and take a few laps with Bill while he went to the bathroom. I noticed Nick’s brother was there but since he works in the city he said he was just meeting us after work and I totally bought it. Next time around the rink I noticed Nick came out in a Santa suit (I love Christmas a crazy amount) got down on one knee and asked me to be his Mrs. Claus (which he had to tell me later because I had no idea what he said) Our parents, some family and friends were all waiting for us. It was the most amazing moment.
