How did you meet?

We met in high school at age 14. I was introduced to him by a friend during Indoor Track and Field practice. He came over introduced himself and then somehow was challenged to arm wrestle the entire girls track team... at the same time LOL. Surprisingly we all lost! We didn't start dating until the following year when he let slip he had a crush on me on a 3-way phone call with a friend. He asked me to be his girlfriend on Valentine's Day 2005 and we have been together ever since!

Tell us about the proposal! He proposed 1 day before I moved away to Philadelphia for optometry school, August 9, 2013. I had a feeling something was up because he had been acting strange the entire week before. I met him in the city that night after he got off work and he surprised me with a carriage ride around Central Park. We sat silently riding around the park, I could tell he was nervous. Our ride was just about to come to a stop when he started telling me how much he loved me and then he got down on one knee and proposed!He proposed 1 day before I moved away to Philadelphia for optometry school, August 9, 2013.

Any other special stories or details?: 
Funny story - he intended to propose 1 week before he actually did. Unfortunately, my grandfather (who lived outside of the country) had passed away a few weeks prior and my mom, dad and brother were in and out of the country trying to make arrangements, leaving me behind to babysit my little sister. So I had to cancel our normal weekly date night and his reaction was so out of character. He made a huge uproar about it and was pretty upset, which was so confusing to me at the time but 1 week later it all made sense when he proposed and explained to me what he had planned originally... I loved the proposal he put together last minute though, wouldn't have it any other way! I only feel bad that he had to spend one extra week a nervous mess lol
