tell us how you met. my former intern’s boyfriend set me up on a blind date with andro, who was his next-door neighbor. that night in 2008, I saw a glimpse of how much andro valued the importance of family. both of our younger brothers were there! I knew he was an introvert and i, an extrovert, but we shared a lot of similarities: our love for alternative music, mexican and italian food, and grey’s anatomy. I went home that night feeling “kilig.” the next day—and yes, andro will always tell me that I was the one who made the first move—i sent him a message. but after that, he never stopped asking me out. SECRETS to A successful relationship?
our relationship is built on respect and it is centered on god. we make sure that we grow together by building on each other’s strengths to become the best versions of ourselves. we also communicate and are not afraid to express what we really feel. don’t get me wrong, we have our fights, but when we are ready to listen and talk to each other, we really do—over a burrito. how DID ANDRO propose? andro and I had been together for seven years, and when we went to japan, I thought he would propose there. however, I went home without a ring, and after that I stopped expected anything from him. A month later, during our usual christmas celebration, we exchanged gifts. I opened his gift and it was an iwatch that I really wanted, so I was thrilled. he asked me to try it on, and when I opened the box, I found the ring. I was so surprised. he later told me that he knew I was expecting a proposal in japan, which is why he purposely delayed it. tell us
about your WEDDING. I always wanted to have a beach wedding, and we were blessed to have celebrated our special weekend with the people close to our hearts. we ended up having our ceremony in the morning and our reception at sunset, and it turned out perfectly. our guests were able to rest in between and party with us all night.
