How did you meet?
They met at North Shore Community College. They had a class together. Garen was way too nervous to even say a word to Daniella so when she introduced herself and asked to get coffee he mistakingly said no and ran away to class only to return a short time later to say yes because he realized he just said no to the girl of his dreams and gathered the courage to sweatingly say yes even if it made him nauseous.
How did he propose?
Garen proposed while vacationing in Colorado. He took Daniella out for what was supposed to be a dinner and ride up the mountain but Garen being his super nervous self drove right past the restaurants and up the mountain because all he could think about was the ring in his pocket. They drove 2000 feet above sea level and pulled off to the side of the road. It was below freezing and snowing. They talked and Garen told Daniella how much she meant to him and how he wanted her in his life forever and then pulled out the ring in a fumbling manor and asked her to marry him. She didn’t say anything at first mostly out of shock and partly because they were freezing. She said yes and they made the long drive down the mountain in search for the food Garen had promised hours before only to find that everything except McDonald’s was closed. They called their families who were all awaiting the news and the celebrations began.
