Jacquelynn shared the story of how she and Luke met, and I was touched. It’s always wonderful to hear that Bristlr has united two happy people.
So, to thank Jacquelynn and Luke for sharing their heartwarming story with me, I’m delighted to share their story with you.
‘When I first messaged Luke neither of us thought it would go quite so far – but that’s what made it so much more special.
We weren’t pushy or too forward, we wound up having long, philosophical discussions, and related on levels much deeper than just general interests. I mean, you get a lot of messages like, “Nice tattoos! Nice beard! Awesome music taste!” So it’s a breath of fresh air to discuss more.
So after a week of messaging on Bristlr we exchanged numbers and we met up in Brooklyn for our first date. We were both nervous but we broke through that initial awkwardness and it was like we were best friends for years. We had great food and came back to his place and played some Skyrim.
After that we took a lot of trips out, and he’d use the excuse of the crowded city to hold my hand. He’s a foot taller than me, so I’m a bit easy to lose!
We decided on New Year’s eve a year ago to seal the deal. He was my first kiss of that year, and now he will always be for the rest of my years!
I stayed with him in Brooklyn for a little while until we both decided to officially move in with one another. We started over brand new with one another.
When I first told my parents that this was the man I was going to marry, my mother almost choked on her drink! She never thought she’d hear those words from me. Even I was taken by surprised, I never thought I’d say the words myself. But when you know, you know!
Luke plays roller derby, so he likes to teach me how to skate. I’m a huge music fan and play guitar so I always like to introduce him to new music, and give him musical advice.
We love spending time together (with our cat too!), playing video games and reading graphic novels. We also love to go out on adventures!
He’s my best friend, my partner and we are each others’ rocks. Not a day goes by without us expressing our appreciation for each other.
We’ve decided to get married September 30th, this year. We’re having a Pagan/Wiccan handfasting on a beach in NY, and we’re looking forward to spending the rest of our days together! All thanks to Bristlr. Cheers!!’
A beautiful story, and we’ve been delighted to share it! We wish you nothing but the best Jacquelynn and Luke!
