Show Us Your Life Friday


Matthew and Abigail met when they were 17, during their junior year of high school. They did a few class projects together, but didn't really know each other very well. When senior year rolled around, they had another class together, where they sat together, but they never hung out outside of class. During the second semester of senior year, they had government class with Mr. Gonzales. Matt sat behind Abby and flirted incessantly with her. However, still nothing came of it. After graduation, they gradually lost touch and only occasionally communicated through Facebook. In the summer of 2008, they began talking on Facebook again and agreed to go out on a date. They decided to go bowling and out to dinner. After a cute and confusing mix-up as to where the bowling alley was (Turns out that there are two AMFs on Bay Area!), they went on to bowl a wonderful game where they scored 120 points. When they added together their scores. Afterwards, Matt and Abby went to Olive Garden where they shared a delightful meal. They had such a great time, they decided to continue this dating thing despite the long distance. On October 10, 2008, they officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. They've been talking about marriage for quite some time now, and she's just waiting for him to officially pop the question!

I love how facebook brought you two back together. It's funny to think how much facebook impacts our life when a few years ago it didn't exists. And just wanted to let you know I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner

I have this weird obsession with couples who met in high school and start dating later! Two of my best friends from high school just got married this last month, and they didn't start dating until their mid twenties even though they always remained in touch! :)

Addendum: Matt eventually DID propose to Abby. She said yes. And they lived happily ever after!
