Rob and Amanda both worked for a local store and that is how they met… There was a lot of hanging out with other coworkers and a little bit of flirting. But they didn’t start dating until she asked if he wanted to get coffee sometime… well, more texted him after midnight and then powered off her phone in case he said no. A couple of days later they went for coffee and two weeks later it was their first official date.
Amanda’s parents live in Bluffton, SC, near Hilton Head and every time they visit Rob is OBSESSED with seeing alligators.
One day, they were about to leave to go to a party and Rob insisted to go outside to the golf course to look for alligators. Amanda kept telling him they didn’t have time and that they’d be late. She finally relented and they went out and didn’t see any.
Amanda said :” I shook my head at his silliness and told him “I love you.” To which he responded, “I love you, too. That’s why…” He then proceeded to get the ring box out of his pocket and get down on one knee. Then I started simultaneously crying, jumping and nodding with my hands clasped over my mouth. And eventually was able to say “Yes.”
