Read their story and fall in love………..
HOW WE MET BY THE BRIDE:
Early in 2012, a friend of mine, Bella, calls me and asks if I'd want to meet someone since I was on a sabbatical from relationships. She asked if I'd want to meet a guy and I was like, why? She said he saw my picture on her DP and told her I was his wife. And I was like, what a fake line. Of all the toasting lines, he would bring that one. After she begged and pleaded with me to at least let him have my PIN, days later I accepted but warned her not to give him my number.
He came to meet me at the airport and we went out to have a drink. He was very quiet and simple, leaving his friend and cousin to fuel the conversation while he just observed me. Somehow, when he dropped me off at the airport, we didn't feel like leaving each other. I thought he would kiss my cheek; he thought I'd hit him if he tried. I probably would have.
Plenty drama ensued between myself and him-one time I told him to stop calling me. After months of having him come to see me monthly, I agreed to date him on August 9, a month shy of my birth date.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR BY THE GROOM:
We love big and fight big. (lol). Blessing is a lady I could see myself with in life because of her openness, big heart, and genuine care towards me and people. At the same time, I was unsure about our long-term future, primarily because of our personality differences. To be honest I struggled with this initially as her personality can be a bit overwhelming- she seems to burst with life. I thought it would be great if we were compatible in every way.
Emotionally, Blessing is beyond what I could have ever asked for. I had always wanted someone kind: Blessing is not only kind, but also sensitive, reliable, open, caring, empathetic, patient, and sweet.
After some thought, I realized I was okay with not having full compatibility. I realized what I truly needed in a partner was emotional availability, kindness, being caring, and Blessing was already all of that, plus some more. I couldn’t have asked for more.
This was the first time when I thought, ‘Hey, I think this is someone I can see myself with for life’.
HOW HE PROPOSED - BY THE BRIDE:
Coming from him, it was so sweet that he put me first and thought to do something that would make me really smile.
