What would April Fool’s Day be without a good joke? Ask Alysa, whose eHarmony boyfriend proposed to her with a cheap frog ring on April 1st. But the frog ended up being a prince, and with a proper ring, they were married in March of last year. Here’s the funny story, in their own words. Happy engagement anniversary, Alyssa and Tim!
We first met on September 6th, 2007. Our first face-to-face meeting was at the races in Grand Forks, ND. Since that day we have been inseparable. Much of our first couple months of dating was actually in farm equipment (I work for a farmer)….so we really got to know each other.
We enjoy many activities together such as: hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, watching movies, going to the local events in our small town, cooking, spending time with family and friends. It has been amazing getting to know each other. Funny thing is we only grew up an hour and half apart. It has been a comfort to both of us being from similar backgrounds and family settings.
We did go through a bit of a scary time; Alysa ended up in the hospital one night had surgery. Needless to say, that was hard on me seeing her wheeled into the operating room leaving me wondering if I would see her again. Thankfully, everything went well and all is good.
On April 1st, I asked Alysa to marry me. Trying to fool her, I had a 25-cent ring in the box, but in the end I pulled out the real thing. Try telling your family and friends that you are engaged on April Fool’s…it was tough! Finding Alysa was the best thing that could have happened in my life. I have finally found my partner in life and the person that I want to share every day with.
April 1st Tim proposed, I just had to ask if he was April Foolin’ me! It was so cute, I walked into the room and he was down on one knee with a 25-cent frog ring in the box. He asked me if I would marry him. I told him, “Not with that ring!” It was such a surprise, and he was super proud that he got me good, because I had no idea.
