Meghan and Michael

How We Met

We met on an online dating website.  After several handfuls of bad dates and no connections, we hit it off right away, developing a friendship, opened our hearts to one another, and fell in love.

How He Asked

Michael and I were in the midst of moving in together.  After a long day of packing up my room, Mike came to my parents’ house to pick me up for an ice cream date.  We went to one of our favorite places, Jersey Freeze.  After ordering, we walked back to the car and got in.  Mike asked me to get him a napkin from the glove compartment.  In the corner was a box, and I really had no idea what it was.  When I opened it, I gasped and looked at him.  I was completely floored to see the most breathtaking thing – an engagement ring.  Mike took the box from me and simply asked, “Meghan, will you marry me?”  I was shocked and couldn’t wrap my head around what was happening.  I kept asking him if this was real, and I eventually said yes!
