Length of Dating: Five Months
Length of Engagement: Five Months
How They Met:
We matched on hinge (they should definitely sponsor us). We texted/snap chatted with each other for about a week or two before we had our first date. For our first date, Caroline came over to my apartment. We talked for hours and ordered McDonald’s from Ubereats
The Proposal Story:
Everyone thought Caroline would propose to me, so I made it my mission to propose to her. I ordered her ring off Etsy; she picked out the style she wanted. I got a bunch of rose petals, candles, balloons, and cute outfits for the cats (a wedding dress for Tina and bow ties for Theo and Winnie). I packed up a picnic, and we went and had lunch, my roommate decorated! She lined the hallways with rose petals and candles and made a heart with rose petals on my bed with the ring in the middle with balloons that said, will you marry me! We celebrated with a champagne toast!
The Engagement Rings:
For our engagement rings, I picked a very classic ring style, Oval solitaire on a gold band, because her taste is very simple. I made sure to get her approval beforehand. I had her ring engraved with “forever and always.” That’s a little something we always say to each other. My ring she surprised me with!! I love it!
