How did you meet?
We met at a party through a mutual friend(Arielle). We had no idea that she knew us separately. We just happened to be standing opposites sides of her and it clicked to her that we needed to exchange numbers right then, at that moment. She snatched our phones and made us exchange numbers and threatened that she would end our friendships with her lol. Surprisingly Myron texted me the next day and we have never stopped since then.

How did he propose?
