Tell us your love story!
We met online in 2015 while living near DuPont Circle in DC. After chatting for a week and realizing we had mutual friends, our schedules finally aligned and we grabbed drinks. Date two followed shortly after and quickly we were meeting each other’s friends. We spent two years together in DC before moving down to Atlanta (Patrick’s hometown) and beginning to plan our life together here.
What about the proposal?
Patrick had indicated that he wanted to be the one to propose and got Richard a cuff bracelet as an engagement gift. Patrick planned a picnic in a scenic Atlanta location and after a bike ride in the August heat Patrick asked Richard to spend the rest of his life with him.
When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?
As we hung out more we realized we had a lot in common both being very social people who valued our family and friends greatly. As our relationship progressed, our friend groups began to overlap and our parents met and got along we realized that we meshed perfectly.
