Tanya & Stefanie
Stefanie and I met through her ex girlfriend. I had been asked by her ex to take care of her dogs while Stefanie’s mom was in the hospital. Her ex was one of my great friends so when Stefanie’s moms funeral came around I offered to be there for her ex. When I offered to be there I did not know I would fall for Stefanie so fast. Stefanie and her ex were together at the time but emotionally there relationship had ended about a year before.
The night her mom passed I had gone to her house to return her house keys and I instantly felt that spark, I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her. When we hugged goodbye that night her hand lingered on my back a little to long. The next night I had invited them over for dinner because I knew what she was going through. After they left Stefanie and I started chatting online that night for about an hour. The next morning we sent four hours chatting and it was like that all week. We were also finding every excuse to see each other and get time alone.
I had gone to Stefanie’s moms funeral for support for her at-the- time girlfriend. Her girlfriend had made a big scene and left the reception. By the end of the night she was in my arms. She says the moment she fell in love with me was when I sent her a simple text that day saying “Your Amazing!”
She tells everyone about that day and how it was supposed to be a horrible and sad day and that it was wonderful and one of the best days.
We had talked about getting married because with my career I move around and I wanted her with me. We wanted the proposal to be perfect not sure which one would propose though. We were laying in bed one night talking and something she said got to me and all I could hear in my mind was asking her to marry me. I looked at her trying to say it and she wouldn’t stop talking. So smiling I grabbed her face told her to shut up and told her “Marry Me!” no asking about it. She obviously said yes and started crying.
