“I met Kristina when she came up on my explore page on Instagram and was mesmerized by her crystal blue/green eyes. I built up the courage to send her a message and gave her my number, hoping to get to know her better. We talked for a week or so until she agreed to let me take her out to dinner. After I dropped her off, I remember thinking in my head, "This is my dream girl. This is the person I want to do all of that corny couple stuff with." The day she agreed to be my girlfriend was probably the second happiest day of my life. I say second happiest because I'm saving the best day of my life for when she says yes to being my wife. I'm addicted to making her happy. That means fully participating in movie marathon nights with all the sappy love stories like the Notebook and A Walk to Remember. We have two pet bunnies together, keep a scrapbook of our memories, and even wore matching outfits to go pumpkin picking once. The real power of a man is the size of the smile of the woman sitting next to him and I plan to spend the rest of my life making her cheeks hurt. Being able to call her mine everyday is my motivation to work hard.”
