Glenn Dorsey, Defensive Tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, & Tiffany Evans
How they met: Glenn messaged Tiffany on Twitter, sparking a year of talking long-distance (he lived in San Jose; she was in Los Angeles) before their first actual date.
Engagement date: July 25, 2015
Where it happened: BOA Steakhouse, Santa Monica, CA
The ring: Haimov Jewelers
How it happened: The couple dated for a little more than a year before Glenn decided it was time to pop the question. “She is so beautiful, caring, educated, hardworking in her career and family oriented, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her," Glenn says. The 49er began planning the proposal under the disguise of his 30th birthday—keeping it an intimate dinner with his mom, her parents and her brother (who flew in from Georgia State University). When July 25th rolled around, the couple and their families went to dinner at the site of their very first date. Before their drinks even arrived, Glenn moved in close to Tiffany, took her hand and said, “It would be an honor to spend the rest of my life with you. I'm at a loss for words, but I'm always at a loss for words when I look at you. But I have to know: Will you marry me?" Overwhelmed, Tiffany began to cry, exclaiming, “Yes!" halfway through Glenn's proposal. The newly engaged couple celebrated with their family and friends at the Playhouse Nightclub in Hollywood.
