Yasmina and Ben
how we met
Ben and I met in downtown Chicago 3 years ago. I was at a happy hour with my coworkers and he was out with friends grabbing a few drinks. I noticed him from the moment I walked in, but assumed he didn’t notice me. I decided to tell my coworker about my interest in him and wondered if he was single. Before I knew it, my coworker had run up to him and brought him over to meet me. After a few hours of Ben hanging out with my coworkers, he said he had to leave but asked for my number and a few days later we had our first date.
how he asked
Ben proposed on a bridge near our home in Chicago where we take walks after dinner. I didn’t think anything of it, since Ben was acting normal until we stopped at my favorite point overlooking the downtown skyline and Ben began to talk about his feelings for me, us, and the future.
That’s when his hands began to shake and he started blushing. Before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him.
