How did you meet?
John and I attended college together. He knew of me, but I didn’t know him. For a year he admired me from afar. One day he saw me in the mall, stopped for small talk, then invited me to a concert.
When did you know he was ‘The One’?
When I noticed his loyalty was with me no matter the situation.
Who said ‘I love you’ first?
Hmm, I don’t remember — probably me.
What do your friends say about him?
I can honestly say I have not heard of anyone not liking John. My exes even like him for me. When we got serious, we started hanging out a lot and my friends were complaining. It’s funny now because they got into serious relationships and the same thing has happened.
How did he pop the question?
We went on vacation for a week. Toward the end of the trip, he said. “Baby let’s sit by the water at sunset before we leave.” It was perfect; on the beach, my favorite wine and no interruptions. He stood up then got down on one knee. He said, “Baby you’re my dream girl and sometimes I can’t believe we’re together.” He went on to describe our whole three years together; the funny stuff. Then he said, “Will you be with me forever?” I start tearing up then this guy pulls out a ring pop! My face dropped. He then put the actual ring on behind it and I jumped up. We enjoyed the rest of our night on the beach and told everyone the next day. He was so nervous!
What was really going through your mind as he proposed?
This is really happening, everything I imagined.
Fill in the Blank: When we’re (finally!) husband and wife, I can’t wait to ________.
Complete this sentence: I love that my future husband is ________.
Who would you cast to play your future hubby in a movie?
Morris Chestnut, he’s fine wine like my fiancé.
Second to his heart, what’s the other sexiest part of his body?
His butt. (Laughs!)
