In 2014, I decided to join Match.com for a 3-month long membership and vowed to cancel if I didn't meet anyone by then. Predictably, I forgot to cancel the membership and a few weeks later came across a profile that caught my interest. I decided to make the first move and send a message to this music-loving, easy on the eyes guy named Chris, who had just joined Match.com after a recommendation from one of his friends. After talking online for a couple of weeks, we went on our first date in January 2015. We shared their love of all things nerdy, among other things, over wine and latkes. Chris even remembered my mom and my birthday a week later!
A little over 2 years later, on a beautiful summer day, we decided to go out for lunch and get some ice cream (my favorite dessert). At the ice cream shop, I took forever to pick a flavor, and once I did, Chris revealed that he had an ice cream cake in the back the whole time! I asked why Chris would let her get her own cup if he had a cake the whole time and then quickly realized what was actually happening. After some sweet words, Chris then got down on one knee and popped the question. The ice cream cake even had "Will you marry me?" written on it!
