Summer 2022 After a tumultuous time trying online dating, I was ready to throw in the towel. Jacob messaged me through a Traditional Catholic Dating group on Facebook and I thought it wouldn't hurt to message back. We connected over geeky things, like LOTR , super heroes, and eventually decided to meet. Fall 2022 We met in person for the first time and became officially boyfriend and girlfriend during that visit. Fall 2022-Spring 2023 We took turns visiting each other; video chatting, calling, and texting in between visits. Gradually, we discussed more and more deep topics and all the important things clicked. Summer 2023 Jacob asked for my hand in marriage and I said yes!
