How did you meet?
Dan and I went to junior high and high school together, and although we were not friends, we had a mutual best friend. We started talking and became friends on MySpace in 2005, while Dan was in the Marines. In May 2006, when Dan was home on leave we went on our first date. We officially started dating while Dan was deployed to Iraq in May 2007.
When Dan was in the Marines, he met his best friend who is from Galax, VA. Dan fell in love with the town and shared his love of Southwestern Virginia with me. We went down on a vacation to visit our friends in April and became engaged.
