Candice and I have known each other since middle school and to this day, the fact that we're engaged is still kind of baffling. During middle school, high school, and even college, we were definitely not each others “type." To be honest, we never really hung out or talked.
I can't tell you when or how exactly, I've tried to recall the time line of events and it is all a bit fuzzy. Somehow, Candice and I started to hang out as friends. We reconnected, hung out, and amazingly she ended up at church!
We had our share of rough patches as friends. You know, the typical middle school drama that no one ever grows out of. Did she like me? Did I like her? Do we like like each other or just like each other? It was an interesting and as she puts it, incredibly difficult time. Even though it was difficult, we really became best friends during that time. Through God's guidance and with the support from friends, we found out we liked each other and decided to fast and pray to see if a courtship would be our next step. Fast forward to today and I'd say our relationship is going pretty well! She did say, "Yes," after all!
From the time we started hanging out to now, she has changed so much and all for the better. She was a fun person to be around before, she's even more amazing now. I can't wait to marry the girl!
If you want a better and more detailed story, you have to ask Candice. Sorry, I'm a guy, this is all I got in terms of story telling. (And yes, she proofread this).
