A little while back we asked via our Facebook page for readers to get in touch telling us how they met their other halves. We had an amazing response and have some lovely stories to share with you all. Back in June we told you how Hannah met Dan and we are back this week with another amazing story.
In the second part of our series on falling in love we hear from reader Beth who met her husband to be through a wrong phone number – if you believe in fate I think you’ll agree this was it!
I hope you enjoy reading about it, if you have a story about how you jumped in with both feet and fell in love we would really like to hear it.
How Beth met Nathan
On January 5th 2010 I received a text from a random number out of the blue and I replied politely saying “Sorry you have the wrong number”, a message came back saying “Who’s this then?” and this was the start of a month of phone calls and text messages. We couldn’t believe it when we found out that we lived 15 minutes from each other!! It was my birthday on the 13th of February (the day before Valentine’s day) and I received a massive bunch of flowers and two cards from Nathan.
We decided to meet each other for the first time on the 15th of February as I wanted to thank him in person for the flowers. We arranged to meet outside Costa Coffee at the MacArthur Glen retail outlet in Bridgend, when I first saw him it hit me like a brick wall: I knew there and then that I was going to marry him! He’s told me the same since!
We got engaged on Christmas Eve 2011 in front of Winnie the Pooh at Disneyland Paris, it was the most amazing moment of my life! I had absolutely no idea he was going to do it! When we first got to Disneyland I wanted to go straight to see Winnie the Pooh but Nathan wouldn’t let me :( little did I know what he had planned! We waited in line for 20 minutes for Pooh bear on Christmas Eve, Nathan handed my camera to another person waiting in line and I had my photo taken with Pooh bear on my own then Nathan took off his coat and walked towards me, it was absolutely freezing!!! He grabbed my hands and I could feel he was shaking like a leaf, he told me that he wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and that I completed his life. The ring was absolutely gorgeous and he had designed it himself! Luckily the person with my camera had kept on snapping without me realising and I was amazed that I got this photograph of the moment.
We moved into a new house in March 2012 and have been saving for our wedding ever since.
Thank you Beth for getting in touch with your beautiful story, good luck with all of your wedding plans!
We hope it all comes together for you soon,
