Martin's West Proposal Story "Calvin & Jennifer"

In April 2015, Calvin suggested that we have a video date that Friday, May 1st. We had been dating long distance for a year, with me in Maryland and him in Arizona. We'd video chatted before but this would be slightly different. We'd dress up, order food and eat it in front of the computer as if we were actually out together. The plan was to leave our respective homes at the same time to pick up our food. We'd talk to each other on the phone while on our way to the restaurants. I missed him a lot so this made me very excited!

On May 1, I came home from work, did my hair and make-up, and picked out a dress to wear. I ordered a chicken roti from a nearby restaurant and as soon as Calvin called, I walked out the door. I had only made it a few steps from my apartment complex when I saw Calvin coming from around the corner with flowers in his hand. I was SO surprised I could barely talk!

After getting over my shock, we turned around and went back to my apartment so I could dress for our actual real in person date. Once I was ready to go, Calvin said, "Before we go, I have one more thing to give you." He reached into his bag, pulled out a ring box, and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. That's when my knees gave way like a push puppet! Calvin caught me mid way to the floor but the emotion of the moment was heavy. Both of us ended up sitting on the floor.  I happily said yes and we dined on pizza as a celebratory dinner.
