Our first date was at an concert downtown. We then walked to the river and sat on a bench and just talked. Three years later when he proposed he wanted to get back to that same bench with me. Unfortunately, it was freezing that April month and I couldn't figure out why he picked that day to want to walk by the river. I'm practically begging to turn back to the warmth of the car when we reach the bench. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I definitely was surprised. I had been waiting, yes. Every Valentine's Day, every Christmas expecting a ring. Of course I said yes. We walked back to the car and the song that was playing brought tears to my eyes. It was Bruce Springsteen singing When You're Alone. I remember thinking I'd never be alone again.
