The 5-Letter Proposal


Hesitant about online dating at first, Bob definitely didn’t expect to download Dil Mil and find his perfect match literally the next day. With everything aligning (she was from the same community, had similar family & life values, and was just as much a foodie as he is), it almost seemed too good to be true, but Bob knew that he wanted to meet this girl in person. Bob was in Atlanta at the time, and Natasha lived in Texas. 

With all of the stars aligning, within a month of talking, Bob got an interview with Amazon in San Antonio, Texas, and the perfect opportunity presented itself for him to meet the girl of his dreams. In fact, he was so excited that he asked her out for dinner right after his interview. He recalls the first moment when he finally saw her: he was facing away from a set of stairs, but then he heard her footsteps behind him walking down the stairs. When he turned out, he was blown away by her beauty. They proceeded to grab dinner at the Riverwalk, and the evening turned into a seamless passing of time with every moment they got to know each other more. He mentioned that she was everything he thought she would be & more – basically, she was perfect. 

Bob’s trip soon came to an end and he returned to Atlanta, but he also got some good news: he was offered the job from Amazon, and he relocated to Boston. At this point, Bob & Natasha both knew that there was definitely something special between the two of them, so the two committed to each other through the distance and took turns traveling once a month to see each other. They both love exploring cities, traveling, eating, hanging out with friends and family, and jamming out together. With everything fitting into each other’s lives like perfect gloves, Bob knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with this woman. 

He proposed in Austin, TX with the most beautiful setup: it was on a bridge, and he had all of the important people that meant anything & everything to Natasha fly in from all over the country. There was a pathway set up with candles in Mason jars, and a small letter during every step of the journey. He had 5 themes for his letters, and 5 friends hold each one as Natasha walked along the path of the bridge:

  1. Are you surprised?
  2. You are beautiful.
  3. You are valued.
  4. You are loved.
  5. You are mine. 

When she got to the end, Bob was there, waiting on one knee for her. <3 

She accepted, and these two lovebirds are getting married in August 2019! You never know what could happen when you give a Dil to someone, so take a chance. 🙂 #OnceUponaDilMil
