Myrna and Josef

Myrna's Proposal in Times Square New York City

How We Met

I first met Josef while working in a supermarket. I had just started working there and he I always thought he was cute. We would take breaks and lunches together just talking and getting to know each other. He was super kind and was a good listener. He always was pleasant to be around and I enjoyed his company. We actually went on a date to see a movie and afterwards I asked him to be my boyfriend and of course he said yes.

How He Asked

Josef had planned a special night out in the city for us to have diner. He told me to look extra nice and wouldn’t say where we exactly were going. He said it was a surprise and I’d have to wait. So we arrived in Times Square in New York and he explained how he was waiting for this text message for our diner date to be ready. So I just went along and followed. So soon as the clock struck 8:00 pm I was told to look up at the screen and there was a photo of me and Josef and the words” will you marry me?”

I was in complete shock and didn’t know what to do or what was going on. It took me a second to realize what was going on and trying to get the words “YES” out.
