How We Met
By the Groom-to-be, Tolu
The first time we met was in 2016, I met her through a friend who had invited her to a party we all went to. I remember staring at her thinking, “Oh wow! She’s beautiful and tall!” We didn’t talk much that day but I invited her to my birthday barbecue where we interacted just a little bit more.
I loved her energy and I had tried to make some early moves in the weeks after the barbecue. However, I didn’t get much audience. So we stayed casual as friends. We would hang out maybe once or twice a year and just text randomly once in a while.

Fast forward to 2019. I reached out to Tolu to promise him I would make it for his 2019 exhibition as I had missed the 2 previous editions. He asked me out to dinner to “catch up” and we had a good time. The following week, he reached out again for dinner and we somehow started talking a lot more frequently.
It soon became obvious that this dude was shooting his shot and I found myself thinking about him a lot as I grew fond of him. He later asked me to be his girlfriend and that’s how our journey started.
