Shanelle + Greg

City: Mississauga

Status: Engaged

Why are you crazy in love? Greg and I met online in 2008... and we were a long time getting to where we are today. We are 10 years apart in age so when we met I found him to be really intimidating !! I was 19 and he was 29. So we agreed to be friends and nothing more - yet everytime I was around him I had butterflies and I couldn't control them. Through the years we lost contact until 2013 when I went through a break up and my thoughts went to Greg and how he had been such a good friend to me. I messaged him and decided to pursue him for a proper date this time. No friends only stuff. He was super doubtful at first but I wouldn't let up. Finally he took me on a "real" date to the 360 restaurant. And the rest is history! We fell hard in love and that was October 2013. In April 2016 I took him to meet my family in London England and he proposed on Westminster Bridge. It's been a long journey but I wouldn't have it any other way because it led me to my soulmate.
