When did you know you were meant to be together?
It’s kinda the same for both of us, one day it just kinda clicked, we have known each other since high school, and have always been friends. One day (Ninas birthday) we decided to give it a chance, and have been together ever since. I would say though, when we realized that being together felt like home, that no matter what we thought we could always rely on each other, and that no one really understood us the way we understand each other.
Who Proposed To Whom?
We kinda proposed to each other, I asked first and then Nina asked me a week later.
How / Where Did You Get Engaged?
I came home from work one night with a gift bag, inside was her ring along with a picture of the two of us, with “Willst du mich heiraten?”, which is german for will you marry me. Ninas grandmother (Omi) was german, and she always like embrace her german heritage. Nina came into my work with my best friend, put out her hand and said “Do you like my ring?” LOL
