Sheila and David
How We Met
David and I met when we were only 15 years old (we are now 23). I used to sit with David’s cousin and his friends at our school cafeteria. One day David decided to join us for lunch. That day I got to the cafeteria early, I went to get my food and when I got to the table he was sitting right in front of me. I had seen him before but had never talked to him before. As I sat there eating my lunch I look up and we connect eyes. He looked at me and said that I had beautiful eyes. Now I know it might seem silly because I have heard that before.. This time was different, there was something in the way he said it that I knew he meant more. I felt as if he saw the person that I truly was. After that day I would look for him everywhere. One day my friend from school sold me her old phone which still had all her contacts stored. That day I was looking through deleting numbers and I came across a familiar name.. It was HIS! I was so excited that I text him! I wrote “ Hi this is your girlfriend” to which he responded “ Hi, um I don’t have a girlfriend?” When I saw that message my heart skipped so many times with joy. He wasn’t dating anyone at the time! I went on to say I was only kidding and I told him who I really was. After that we became really good friends. At the time he was 3 weeks from transferring schools and to me felt as if destiny had brought us together just in time. He asked me to be his girlfriend a week before transferring, the rest is history.
How He Asked
We planned a vacation with his family in June of 2017, we left on vacation December 3, 2017. On this day we had been very tired from going to excursions the evening before, that day his parents planned a trip to explore Cancun’s coral reef. We left really early in the morning so we got finished with the cruise a little over noon. When we got back to our hotel we took a shower and took a nap. When we woke up we noticed it was getting a little dark so he asked me to go with him to the beach. He has always loved to see the sunset where ever we are, I didn’t think anything of this for that reason. When we got the rock, there was 3 girls taking pictures of themselves in the rocks. When we reached the rock he asked them if they could take a picture of us. I went ahead and started walking towards the rocks edge, when he got next to me, he held me by my arms and started to explain how I influenced him so much to become a man. The amount of time he was planning for that exact moment. How I brought him closer to God, and the love he had to me for everything I was. I couldn’t believe it, the way he stared at me made me melt. I shed a tear or two and he got on one knee. He put the ring on my finger and I felt like I was on the clouds. It was the most perfect unforgettable moment in my life. I said yes to the man I love since I was 15 years old.
