Samantha & Hunter’s Love Story
Hunter was my first date (and only date) on Match! We’ve been together two years and engaged for about three months now. Our first date was actually very awkward and I wasn’t sure if I would keep seeing him but my Mom told me to give him another chance and I am glad I did! He can be very corny and over-the-top so I had a hard time believing he was real at first, but when the corniness never faded and each date was better and more thoughtful than the last I knew he was sincere! About a year into our relationship he got a job in another state and moved away, so we’ve been doing the long distance thing for almost half our relationship. It is very difficult but I also think it brought us closer and helped us appreciate each other more. He truly is the most thoughtful and good-hearted man I’ve ever known and I am so lucky to have found him.
How do you show love to each other everyday?
S: Since we are long distance it’s a little more difficult to show love everyday in the traditional sense, but we always send each other good morning/good nigh texts and talk on the phone whenever we have a chance!
H: I make sure to text her first thing when I wake up and right before she falls asleep everyday.
What moment did you know he/she was the one?
S: When he drove an hour to take me to get ice cream! Seriously though, as cheesy as it sounds, I think I knew after our first kiss. It took him four dates for him to build up the courage to do it and I remember texting my friend after “I think I found my husband.”
H: There wasn’t one clear moment. It was a culmination of lots of little moments. One day, I just knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.
How would he/she describe you in one word?
If your wife/partner could choose one thing of yours to get rid of, what would he/she choose?
S: Probably my giant stuffed animal named Big Bunny. I’ve slept with him every night since I was 8 years old. He’s old and has seen better days but I can’t let him go!
H: Probably my recliner. She already got rid of my old shoes.
How would you complete this sentence? My partner is a natural-born _______
S: GPS. Seriously- he can navigate anywhere without an issue.
H: Artist. She’s so creative with everything she does. Photography, gift giving, problem solving, everything has a creative touch.
Define his/her perfect day.
S: Sleep in late, eat a big home-cooked breakfast, go to a Packers game or watch one on TV, stop at a bar after for beer, pool and pizza, end the night on the couch with a good movie and me (hopefully).
H: Any day where we get to spend it together, exploring a new area or city.
What is his/her zodiac sign?
Share your favorite memory with your partner.
S: That time he took me to Paris and proposed at the Palace Versailles.
H: Well that would definitely be when I proposed to her in Versailles. I proposed in the gardens outside the palace. It was pretty magical.
