Michael and I first met on a dating app called Bumble. We matched in September and went on our first date, Axe Throwing. We had so much fun and laughed the whole time. We went to dinner afterward and it felt familiar with one another. By November, we had become official and had met the other's families. We spent our first Christmas together in 2020 and went on our first trip alone to visit my best friend in Arizona. In February of 2021, we both exchanged our feelings and said our first "I love you's". The next year was amazing. We traveled, spent holidays together, and grew closer and closer. In April of 2022, Michael proposed to me in the most beautiful, thoughtful way. He surprised me and had our families waiting to congratulate us. Since then, we have been planning our wedding and dreaming of our future lives together.
