Michael and Melissa met in April of 2016 at Apple. They were in training and Melissa's first impression of Michael was that he was really goofy...lol.
Michael's first impression of her was a little different - he remembers her smile, and that she smiled all the time. When they had an exam and he was stressing about it, he looked over at her and she was smiling.
Michael decided from the start that he liked Melissa and wanted to get to know her better. He asked Melissa out a few weeks later - and she said yes! This only encouraged him to like her even more, but Melissa still wasn't sure.
They both have memories of Michael chasing her until around the fourth date. At this point they had a deep discussion and opened up to each other. He convinced her at that time that they were destined to be together. They decided to date exclusively then.
They announced to their co-workers that they were a couple. From May (yes - one month after they met!) onward they couldn't stand to be apart. And now they are officially engaged and plan to be married in May of 2018.
Congratulations Michael (Austin) and Melissa! I'm so happy for you!
