Ah, modern love. The in­ter­net has made it eas­ier for us all to find our match. That’s how Amanda and Drew met. Brought to­gether by the dat­ing site Plenty of Fish, the two hit it off from their first date—a night at the pub for beer and wings. It’s “not the most ro­man­tic thing, but is ac­tu­ally ex­actly what I’m into,” says Amanda. Fast-for­ward a cou­ple of years—the two have suc­cess­fully reeled each other in, and de­cided to buy a fish tank for their home. Amanda didn’t want any old setup in her liv­ing room; it had to have some­thing spe­cial in it, she re­mem­bers say­ing to Drew. “We had been go­ing out to Peg­gys Cove or wher­ever ev­ery week­end to try and col­lect a rock or piece of drift­wood here and there,” she says of their vi­sion. Then one night, af­ter she re­turned from a week­end away, Drew told Amanda he had put the finishing touch on the tank. “He said, ‘Come here Amanda, I want to show you some­thing...I even put some­thing mag­i­cal in there for you,’” she says. To her sur­prise, the spe­cial touch was an en­gage­ment ring. “He’s re­ally good at those kinds of thought­ful things,” says Amanda of her fi­ance. What a catch!
