How did your love story begin?

 

We had both been through a bout of bad relationships. We were both beginning to give up on finding true love. We both joined a dating site as a last resort. I came across his profile and liked what I saw. He had already liked my profile so it was an instant match. We began talking and immediately hit it off and discovered we had a lot in common. After a few days, he asked me to go for dinner with him and we’ve been together every day since ❤️

Tell us all about the proposal.

 

We booked to go away for a night to Askari game reserve. He upgraded our room to the Honeymoon suite without me knowing. I didn’t even realize when we got to our room that it looked different to what we booked or that there was a dress mannequin in the room! We went on a game drive and he kept dropping hints such as ‘that guy is going to propose to his girlfriend today. Apparently you can see on a guy’s face when he’s going to propose’. I just thought no, he’ll probably only propose later in the year.

We went for dinner that evening and it was a little cold so he took a jacket with him (little did I know he was hiding the ring box underneath it ;) ). We walked into the restaurant & the staff asked me for our room number. They said ‘oh you’re over here’ and started leading us outside the restaurant. I was wondering where are they taking me. He had arranged the private cigar room which isn’t meant to be used by guests. It was set up with a table for two with rose petals on it. He started saying how much he loves me and that I mean the world to him etc. then he came around to my side of the table, got down on one knee, popped open the ring box and said ‘will you marry me?’. Of course I said yes ❤️
