My fiancé and I met in November, not knowing that we had been looking for each other. Athletically challenged and battered as I was, I was glad to take a break from playing intramural football, as I explained to a teammate that I had been trying to find this guy "Jack " since I arrived in college in August. She said she had gone to high school with him and that she would introduce us. However, another girl was interested and wanted to pass her number on to him.
When we were finally introduced, he was determined that I would not get away. He gave me his phone number and insisted that I call that night. I knew I looked horrible earlier and thought he was interested in someone else when he invited me for coffee that night. I figured I would simply pass along the other girl's number and that would be the end of it. On Christmas Eve, my favorite day of the year, he proposed in front of both of our families and a small group of close friends. He even arranged an engagement party following my acceptance!
