Leigh and Darren
How We Met
Darren had a crush on me 8 years ago and I thought he was too young for me. 5 years later I was ready to settle down and found myself on Tinder, on the market for a husband. I swiped past who I thought was Darren and quickly made contact with him to find if it’s true, that he is single. Between all those years we found other partners and I was convinced he was marrying his last girlfriend.
Turns out he was single, next thing you know we’re on our first date and I’m already falling in love. Three months later Darren went to the States for two years, broke my heart in two. We didn’t think we’d make it work in such a long period but needless to say, following two visits to him and three years later, he is making me his wife!
How He Asked
Last week out of nowhere, Darren sent me the sweetest message saying that out of his appreciation and love for me, he is sending me for a massage and a mani. He is full of surprises and always sends me out to get pampered. We were planning a hike for the coming Saturday and I wasn’t too excited because I had my hair and nails done and it wasn’t going to work for me. The Saturday morning came and I dreaded being dragged out of bed at 6:30. He finally got me up and the weather was perfect for a hike in the middle of Winter. Needless to say the protestations going unnoticed were all worth it because when we got to the top to admire the spectacular view, he went down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
He was so nervous and so gorgeous and I cried and laughed at the same time for about 5 minutes. It was the best hike I’ve ever been on.
