Ben’s Perspective

Meet Ben!


1. What was it like when you asked your girlfriend to marry you?

I was very excited. I could hardly keep from exploding the entire time. And I was so excited that I could hardly plan out how I wanted to propose to her. And I was rushing it all, so that’s the main reason I was nervous.

Meet Cheyenne!


1. How did you meet your man?

Micah and I met when his family moved to Ironwood in the 3rd grade. We grew up as childhood friends! โ˜บ

What is the most difficult thing about dating?

Long Distance! It was both good for us, yet extremely difficult at times! Learning to understand one another and what theyโ€™re doing. It gets very frustrating to not go through life together and to do all your communication over the phone/skype/ or texting. Misunderstandings definitely come up! Girls think WAY different than guys, and the sooner you understand that and learn the ways of a guy.. the better! Haha Continue reading “Cheyenne’s Story | Dating”
