A mutual friend brought Christine and Brian together for a night at Dave and Busters. Brian bought Christine a drink and they sectioned off to chat alone the rest of the evening. The next day, they got in touch over Instant Messenger and continued to hit it off. Brian impressed Christine with an unusual first date -- a day of indoor rock climbing. After just a few months of dating, they moved in together.

Two years later, they took a trip to San Francisco to celebrate their anniversary. It took some advanced planning and a few white lies, but Brian was able to surprise Christine with a visit to the Exploratorium and a proposal on a bench facing the Golden Gate Bridge.
