He contacted her on an online dating site and unfortunately, Yesabel was just not feeling it. Â That is, until Fate intervened and pulled them together like two magnetic strips. Â Everything changed one day when she was on the treadmill working up a sweat. Â She received a text from Nick…the guy from the dating site.
Nick had been pumping iron when all of a sudden he saw that same gorgeous girl he’d reached out to from the dating site. Â Was it really her, he thought? Â He had to find out. Â Yesabel, read the text…it was Nick. Â He was at the gym right now! Â “Where is he?” she thought. Â “How do I look? Â Do I tell him I’m here?”Â She scanned the gym and spotted him. Â She replied to his text confirming that indeed it was her on the treadmill. Â And there it was between drops ofÂ sweat and barbells that these two met in person for the first time. Â The connection that was not there online was so powerfully strong in person. Â They instantly became inseparable. Â They discovered that they both worked at Duke University AND lived on the same street! Â Whaaaaaat?! Â Yes, fate is funny like that. Â If you are bound to meet, you will. Â If not online, then at the gym. Â If not at the gym, then at work, and if not at work, then walking your dog along the street you live on. Â I know this story is one their future kids will ask to hear over and over and over again someday. Â Congrats Yesabel & Nick! Â It was so great watching you relive your proposal at Lands End!
It was a cold and foggy day in the city when Nick took Yesabel to this very same spot to profess his love and ask her to be his wife.
