Dianna & Stephanie
Nineteen years ago we were high school friends; we had English class together. I remember Stephanie standing out in a crowd, being the class clown. Two months ago, my friend asked me if I wanted to go on a blind date with a girl my age and - lo and behold - 19 years later, the class clown and I meet again. I immediately fell in love with Stephanie, and we can't wait to marry and start a family. Who knew that girl sitting in my English class 19 years ago would be my soulmate and future wife?
Colby & Matt
We met five years ago. Our first date ended up lasting three days, and it was simple - we just talked and talked and talked. We went to the lake, the zoo, shopping, out with friends and to the beach. The one constant from that weekend and the past five years is that we never struggled with communicating. It came to us naturally.
