We're here to help you keep moving forward, no matter what your plans are.
I met my Fiancé in an orientation class at a new job in Tallahassee, FL where we both attended Florida A&M University. At some point during the orientation they asked us to introduce ourselves to the people next to, in front of and behind us. When I turned around to introduce myself to the person behind me, my heart literally skipped a beat when I looked into his eyes. He was so cute that I immediately froze told him my name and moved on to the person next to me. I then spent the rest of the class attempting to look behind me without being too obvious. If you let my Fiancé tell it he saw me first. He says that when I walked in the room wearing my red sweater and navy blue pants (yes he remembers exactly what I had on), he immediately noticed my smile and my hips (in that order of course). When I sat in front of him he couldn’t believe his luck however, when I promptly spent the rest of the orientation class acting as if he wasn’t there he was very disappointed. We started work and occasionally would go to lunch with some other people we knew on the job and chat here and there about nothing in particular. I am really shy when it comes to approaching men and he is shy about approaching women. About 3 months after I started working I moved to a management position and the company had a zero tolerance fraternization policy which pretty much meant anything between us would cost both of us our job. We continued to go to lunch about once a week in a group and see each other out from time to time. The turning point came at a Halloween party where both of us drank a little too much and ended up confessing how attracted we were to each other. So we began to date in secret and after about 9 months the relationship had reached a point where keeping it secret was impossible and really causing some strain so I made the decision to leave and find another management position so we could openly be together. I quit a week before the annual company picnic and showing up at the picnic on his arm and being openly affectionate was a wonderful feeling and totally justified my decision. We dated for 5 years we have had our ups and downs, and on September 20, 2009 on the waterfront in Washington D.C. he proposed and made me the happiest girl in the world.
