How They Met (and the Proposal)
According to the bride, Hope: “We met in 2009 where we play handball as teammates. He revealed to my close friend that he liked me, and begged my friend to hook us up. I did little ‘shakara’ to him but later accepted to become his girlfriend.
After a few months of dating, we stopped communicating for no reasons… just like that? Yes, just like that. We only got talking again when one of our mutual friends visited me and while we were discussing, he made a phone call to him (Alexander) and told him to speak to Hope (me). Can you imagine that he couldn’t even spot my voice – he had to ask: ‘which Hope? Is this Hope Odin (me)’? I told him ‘yes’.
So, he took my phone number. He later told me that he was out for serious dating. One day, he called me on phone, saying he sent someone to me, and that the person was at the gate waiting for me. So, I went there and was surprised it was him. I screamed in excitement. We talked about the past, present and the future.
That was how we continued from where we stopped in our relationship”.
Their Marriage Proposal Story
Hope speaking: I saw the proposal coming when on the 1st of January 2016, he called me and casually said ‘Temi na this year o’. I accepted his proposal because he understands me so much even with my stubbornness… Haha
In March he told me he wanted to meet my parents to tell them his intentions (to marry him). So, we fixed a date. He met my parents and they accepted him.
Alexander speaking: ‘Hope can be very stubborn, but I love everything about her – including her stubbornness. I just believe God planned and prepared her for me, because after (6 years of) lost communication from 2009, we still came back together in 2015. Haba, na God-win! But, before she accepted me back… Hmmm… This time around, I had to keep the communication on before she would again take off (which I don’t want). Hahaha’
