How did you meet?: Haley: We were set to attend the same college (Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois) and we were part of the "Blackburn College Class of 2016" Facebook group. Jared found me on there and messaged me and I didn't message back for 4 months because I forgot to respond. Once we both moved into our dorms, we finally met face-to-face outside of Hudson Hall on a bench. The bench became a significant part of our relationship through the years because of that first meeting. I had a boyfriend back home at the time and I did not realize that Jared liked me much more than a friend until his roommate, Aaron, told me so. Long story short, I friend zoned him real quick but we never stopped hanging out and this is what made Jared my best friend.
Where was your first date?: Our first official date was on July 17, 2015, at a Hibachi restaurant (our favorite) followed by a Springfield Sliders baseball game and the night ended with a trip to Cherry Berry Frozen Yogurt.
What was it about your Fiance that made you realize they were the one? Haley: I knew he was the one when I saw how he works at our relationship. He doesn't let the bad times stay bad, he guides us to work together to get through it and come out stronger. I have no doubt in my mind that because we have conquered so much together already that we can truly make it through anything life throws at us.
Jared: I knew she was the one because I can't imagine my world without her being a part of it.
Describe your Fiance in one word. Haley: I would describe Jared as "passionate" because of how he treats our relationship and how he handles each day. He is always striving to be better and that applies to our relationship as well.
Jared: I would describe Haley as "unconditional" because she has always been there for me no matter what. Even when we were just friends, Haley was always there for me through the good and the bad.
What is your favorite thing to do together?: We have several things that we like doing together. Playing with our dog, Belle, is one of our favorites things! She is our pride and joy and we are expecting a second dog at the end of August named Rizzo! Other things include watching Netflix, watching/attending sporting events, trying new things, but mainly simply spending time together.
What song comes on the radio that makes you wanna dance? Haley: Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake and Something I'm Good At by Brett Eldredge
Jared: Body Like a Backroad by Sam Hunt and Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake
