We met online through Plenty of Fish in fall 2012. Through the next 2 years, we were friends and dated off and on. October 31, 2014 was a turning point in our relationship. We went out to dinner and a haunted house, but ended up falling asleep on the couch curled up together while watching a movie. We realized at this point that it was silly for us not to be together. We obviously kept coming back to each other for a reason and it seemed meant to be. January 17, 2015, we were sitting discussing our plans for the future. We were talking about moving across the country for specialized schooling, but didn’t want to be apart or have our relationship end in a strange place away from family and friends. At some point Eric couldn’t hold it in any longer. He told Rebecca that we belong together and shouldn’t be apart and asked her to marry him. While Rebecca had many reasons to wait (didn’t have a ring, he needed to get her dad’s blessing, etc), ultimately she said yes of course! Once we were engaged, pieces starting to fall in to place quickly. We found a place to get married, invited family and a few friends, and said our vows on April 1, 2015. We are completely ecstatic and are excited to start our new life together.
