Pete and Alexa

Small World After All

Alexa and I met about 2 years ago on OkCupid after I messaged her and received a "woo" in return, not knowing what that meant. After I found out she was trying to respond using her cell phone, she explained that her laptop was broken and "wooing" was all that would work on the phone.

Once we began messaging and texting, we really hit it off. We met in person about two weeks after we started communicating for a stroll through the mall and a spur-of-the-moment dinner. We had a great conversation about everything with no awkward silences or pauses; everything just felt right.

Speaking of feeling right, the whole time we were communicating, I had a funny feeling like I knew her; something just felt familiar in my gut... So one day, after having dinner with her family at Bertucci's, we just happened to drive by my old elementary school and for some odd reason I could remember all my teachers' names. When I said the name of my first grade teacher, her mother almost had a stroke. She said, "Lexi had her, too!!" Later on, I went to my mom's and found my first grade class photo and, sure enough, Lex and I are standing in the front row together one person apart. Small world.

We moved in together in December of 2008 and have many great memories and have done lots of fun and exciting things together. We don't always see eye to eye on everything, but we love each other and always find a way to work things out.

Now we are getting MARRIED!! I proposed to her in March of 2010 and caught her off guard so perfectly, which was my plan from the beginning. Now the planning is in full swing and we are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives.
