Anthony and I met years ago working part-time at Target together in college. We were casual acquaintances (mostly on Facebook, you know how it goes!) but never really became close friends. Years went by and we finished college, got 'real' jobs and grew up. Lo and behold, down the road in 2016, both Anthony and I were looking for out perfect match and were both dabbling in online dating. Anthony sent me a message on a dating website, and I immediately recognized him from his profile picture! I gave him my telephone number (since I knew he wasn't a creep!) and we started talking non-stop. We went on our first date, second, third, fourth...and I haven't left him alone since! :) After about two years of dating, Anthony got down on one knee and asked me to marry him on the Boylan Bridge overlooking downtown Raleigh - the exact spot where he had told me several months earlier that he wanted to marry me ASAP, and didn't want to wait for the "perfect" time, that we were ready despite all else. Fast forward to about one year after our engagement and it's our big day! I can't wait for our life together. We are truly a perfect match."
