How did you meet?
Both Danielle and I attended Oakland University earning a degree in the same field. We both were student-athletes, Danielle played softball and I was on the men’s swim and dive team. One of the things that the athletic programs did was have brother-sister teams. So we would make posters and go out and cheer for our respective assigned teams. During our freshmen year the women’s softball team was paired up with the men’s swim team. As we were getting ready to leave for our championship meet I had received a gift bag with a note inside. The note read “Good luck at your meet” and was signed Danielle Peters # 5. We had never met before and I had no idea who she was until the following summer. We both had signed up for the same organic chemistry class one summer. As we were sitting there I had noticed she was wearing an Oakland softball t-shirt with the #5 on it. We had a mutual friend who had the class with us and introduced us. Every day this friend would sit next to Danielle and they would talk. I started asking her friend to switch seats with me so I could sit next to Danielle. After that we began talking more and more and would walk to every class together. We became inseparable and I knew I had found the girl I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
