Alex and Jeremy met while out separately with friends at a bar. She knew his best friend Rob who had lived on the same floor as she had at Southern Connecticut State University. She didn’t want to go out that night but her friend INSISTED that she join them. Alex was the designated driver for the evening, intensely bored and sitting alone in a booth. Jeremy came over and asked if she wanted company. The rest is history!
How did he propose?
After 4 1/2 years of dating we finally decided to take a vacation together. I should have known that something was up because Jeremy was the one who suggested the Disney vacation (he leaves the social planning up to me). It was raining like crazy when we got there and continued to for a number of hours. We went out to dinner and finally the rain had stopped when we were leaving. The hotel we were staying at had man made beaches all around so we went for a walk. I was tired from the traveling and annoyed with the rain, but that soon changed when he got down on one knee in the sand and asked me to marry him!
