Chuck and I actually met on my 21st birthday. I went out with a friend from work to meet up with her boyfriend and he had some friends with him. Chuck ended up being one of those friends and even though we didn't get to talk much that night he gave me his number and the rest is history. We ended up talking on the phone a lot and finally went on our first date over a month later on Valentines Day. We've been together ever since and couldn't be happier.
Chuck proposed to me on Wednesday September 19, 2007. He suggested we go running that night at a local park I wanted to go to. When I got home from work I changed into sweatpants and got ready to go. I had wanted to take my car since there was a movie I needed to return in it but Chuck insisted we take his. I thought this was really weird but just went with it. We parked the car and got out to start running. A couple of minutes into it I turned around since I felt like I was talking to myself and saw Chuck just standing still looking at me. He walked right over and got down on one knee. I can't say I really remember what he said since I was so shocked but he took out the ring and eventually asked me to marry him. Naturally I said yes and he put the ring right on my finger. We ended up leaving the park after that to call our parents and go out to dinner.
