Lindsay and Noah
How We Met
I’m a full time Youtuber who grew up in a small town in Georgia. I had a random feeling of wanting to move to a new state. I searched for good states to move to in your early twenties. Columbus, Ohio kept popping up. I promise I never thought I’d move to OHIO. However, I felt a pull. Two months later I moved to Columbus. I regretted moving here almost instantly and felt that way for almost a month. One day when I was eating alone at a local restaurant, a girl came up and made conversation. After finding out I was new and had no friends, she invited me to hang out with her and her friends. That first night, we all met up at one persons apartment (Noah’s) and I remember feeling so nervous. Then I saw him and it’s was almost instant. He was easily the most beautiful person I had ever seen and I couldn’t help but flash him a big, goofy smile all night. He was instantly my best friend and soon after my boyfriend. We barely spend any days apart.We’ve traveled all over and are now packing up to move to Los Angeles in January with our new puppy.
How He Asked
After spending a few days in New York City, on our last night there, Noah insisted on going to one specific coffee shop across town. We had been Black Friday shopping all day so I kinda nudged to take our stuff back first or go somewhere close by, but Noah insisted. We headed towards Little Italy and stopped to get some dinner. I could tell he was in a rush, but definitely wasn’t putting it together. After our dinner we were walking through Washington Square Park, a place we had sat together our first trip together during our first month of dating. I had the hiccups so I insisted we stop to sit on a bench until they went away. Noah was googling every possible way to get rid of hiccups and kept making me do the craziest things until they were gone. He even made hold my tongue in the middle of the park. HA! Then we started back through the park. Once we reached the Arch, Noah put his bags down and I started taking a photo of the monument. When I turned back around, he was getting on one knee and started off by saying “I think this would be a great place to make a commitment.”
After lots of tears, laughing, kissing and me saying yes, everyone in the park was clapping. It was crazy turning around to see such a huge crowd had turned to watch. Then after he showed me one of our photographer friends who had been hiding and had driven hours to capture our moment! We ended with a really sweet engagement photo shoot. Happiest moment of my life.
