Taylor and I matched on February 9, 2020! I only had the app for a week and was just on the app to meet people and not have anything serious. At the same time, I saw his profile and thought he was cute I said “he looks like a red neck country guy” so of course I swiped up and said yes to him. I just kept looking at other profiles, but in the back of my mind I was hoping he would swipe up and we could match! As the day goes on, I saw on mutual that we had matched! I was actually quite excited, so of course I messaged him first! I really loved his profile because it showed me that he was genuine and I wanted to give him a chance. We talked a little bit on mutual and I asked him for his number because I want to get to know him more than just keep messaging on the app. We didn’t meet up in person until February 13.
Basically we got to know each other by texting and talking on the phone. It was actually quite helpful to do that because when we met each other for the first time, we both weren’t as nervous since we already got to know each other a little bit. The date was great that after when the date was over, I wanted him to come over to my place and hang out. After that, we kept seeing each other but I actually wasn’t as interested in him in the beginning. I was married and it was an abusive relationship. Also from that marriage, I have a little boy. In the back of my mind, I was saying to myself I wasn’t ready to have a new relationship since I was only divorced for a couple of months, and at the same time I was a single mother. I told him in the first month that I didn’t want anything serious and basically just wanted to be friends. I still wanted to date others and not be serious with him, but Taylor was different and I was just drawn to him. When I try to ignore him, somehow I was the one that wanted to talk to him. I just told myself “maybe he’s supposed to be in my life, let’s get to know him and see what happens”. I am very blessed that I followed that prompting because he is the most amazing man I have ever met. He has been by my side while I am healing from my last relationship and he loves my son and treats him like it’s his own.
They have such a great bond and I enjoy watching them being together. I really feel Heavenly Father gave me that prompting to get to know Taylor and I am proud of myself for following that. I look at myself when we first met and it seemed crazy to be in a new relationship quickly and been together for over a year and now going to be married in a month. Sometimes instead of just waiting for things to happen, you have to trust with what you feel and just move forward. If I didn’t move forward with what I felt, then I would have not known about what I have with Taylor. He brings pure joy in my life and he really is my best friend. I can’t wait to be marry him and be with him forever and eternity as a family. I love you Taylor Jordan Dickey and I am glad we both got the Mutual App! He proposed to me on December 15, 2020. He did it in the living room with my son. Due to Covid and weather there wasn’t much, so he wanted to make it simple and wanted to give me the ring. He read a letter to me and he popped the question! It was sweet and I loved it!
