Pete and Ashley first met at Michigan State when they were undergrads. Pete remembers when he met Ashley for the first time. He was a Junior and she was a Sophomore. He went to her apartment to study with her roommate Hilary. They were introduced and anytime Hilary spoke about Ashley in the future Pete would pay close attention. Eating honey chicken, wearing sweats, a baggy shirt and a backwards hat. Apparently Pete also had what he insists was a very flattering chinstrap goatee. There paths didn’t cross again in College. Three years ago Ashley received a call from Laurel, a mutual friend who wanted to set them up.
Although Ashley didn’t remember Pete by name, when she saw his photo she was interested. Pete was living in Baltimore at the time and decided to join Hilary on an upcoming trip to visit Ashley in NYC. It was not like me to pursue a girl like this, Pete said, but I had a strong feeling that Ashley was worth it. When they finally met they immediately clicked. We just started talking, Ashley said, and everything felt so comfortable. They spent the next day touring New York City and that evening, celebrating Ashley’s birthday with a group of her friends. It was there, at a bar in Union Square, that Pete finally made his move. They were standing at the bar when Pete finally leaned in for their first kiss. The two began the long distance phase of their relationship. Before long they were in love. Soon after, Pete and his dog Gibson, moved from Baltimore to New York to live with Ashley. A little more than a year ago Pete proposed and here we are. Life will never be the same after today.
