Lisa and Daniel

How We Met

We met on Plenty of Fish. I was in Fort Hood, Texas for a job interview for their WIC office on base the last week of November 2015. The app automatically sync my GPS location. We spent the whole Christmas holiday emailing, calling, texting and on Skype.

How He Asked

Danny deployed to Afghanistan during the summer of 2016. On Thanksgiving, via Skype, we got engaged. Since he wasn’t around to give me a ring, he made it up to me by telling me to choose my own ring. I literally walked into a Kay Jewelers store a week later and got a $6,000 ring (giving a sales person a very nice holiday commission).

I had a bit of buyer’s remorse, because I wasn’t sure if it was too expensive, and maybe I should have gotten something (a few thousand dollars) less, but two weeks later there was a zero balance on my Kay account. He had paid the whole thing online! What a guy.
