How did your love story begin?


Our Once-Upon-A-Time story starts at my hair salon,
Although, not as huge as Amazon or running a Marathon.
Every month he came to me for a haircut,
I could not keep my heart’s poundings shut.
As my stomach went in a flutter,
And my hands nearly became like butter.

For the last 12 years, every month, I cut his hair,
It was such a lovely affair.
We talked and chatted as hairdressers do,
And that one day in the month was never blue.

When our previous relationships ended,
It felt as if our hearts were mended.
We started chatting more frequently,
And it was absolutely dreamily.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic,
The love between us grew magnetic.

Perhaps that is why they say love is such magic,
Having each other in our loves makes each day romantic.
I’ll end with Elton John’s song: “I hope you don't mind that I put down in words how wonderful life is while you're in the world."

Tell us all about the proposal.


We visited each other at our various residences.

Eventually I started to get tired of the driving up-and-down and asked Eksteen that we should maybe lie together instead, but he was not very happy about it.Two days later he sends a message letting me know he wanted to talk to me, and I have to stop by his apartment. I was just about stressed, because what it could be now.

When I arrived at his apartment, he bought me beautiful Blushing Bride flowers that I love so much. Eksteen's sister also professed, when she saw the Blushing Bride Flowers, and said: "Watch, he's still going to ask you to get married."

When I walked in, Eksteen was on his knees with the flowers in his hand and said he really wanted to stay with me, but then he wanted to marry me.
I then asked, What ?? Did you just ask me to get married?
We got engaged there and then, without a ring - haha, but only ordered the rings later.
