an olive proposal | davis + jordan
Davis and I met in 6th grade when we were 11 and 12, but didn’t really become friends until 7th grade. Sophomore year of high school, my best friend was asked to homecoming, and since I wanted to go with her, I asked her to find me a date. She asked Davis if he would ask me, knowing that he had a crush on me for years. He nervously asked me, hardly making eye contact, and I said yes. We all went to homecoming together and though I thought we were all friends, Davis saw this as his opportunity. He asked me on a date and I played the whole, “I don’t want to ruin our friendship” and that “I wasn’t allowed to date until I was 16”. So the months leading up to my 16th birthday, he got a group of friends together to see a movie, go bowling, go to dinner, etc every single weekend just so he could see me. I of course started to fall for him, and he asked me to be his girlfriend March of 2016. We dated all through high school and did everything together. We went to two different colleges, leaving us doing long distance, but we dropped everything to come visit each other every weekend. Eventually Covid hit, and I ended up transferring schools to be online, so I moved in with one of our mutual friends in the town he lived in. We were so happy being in the same town again, and a year later on our 6 year anniversary he asked me to marry him. We could not be more excited to start our lives together after 6 years of dreaming about it! We are finishing college in May and hope to get married in fall of 2023.
