Their love story is what Joy refers to as a whirlwind romance. She was living in San Diego, CA and Dave was living in Columbus, OH. They started talking online in the beginning of 2017 and by the end of February they decided this was something and to “date” exclusively. In the beginning of March Dave went out to California for work and stayed for four days. After he left, Joy called her mom and told her that she was going to marry this guy. Her mom nearly fell off of her chair because Joy was always anti-marriage!
Dave went back out to California for work again at the end of March for two weeks. Before he flew out again, they booked a flight for her to go to Columbus after the two weeks in San Diego were up so that she could see where he lived and they could drive to Pennsylvania for him to meet her entire family. The flight that they booked for her to fly to Ohio and for him to meet her family turned into them also looking for a place together in Columbus. In May Joy left her home in California to move in with Dave in Columbus.
Joy loves Dave’s humor, his selflessness, his work ethic, and the love he has for his daughter and the way he and his daughter immediately blended in with her family. Dave loves Joy’s smile, the way they have fun together no matter what they’re doing or where they are, and her sense of humor. In their free time, they love to go out for drinks, take their dog Diego (since they met in San Diego they thought the name was only fitting!) to the dog park, travel, and just relax.
One of their favorite memories was his first visit out to San Diego. They went to Mission Beach and walked along the boardwalk up to Pacific Beach and stopped so that he could put his feet in the Pacific ocean for the first time. They sat on the beach until the sun set and then found an outdoor beach bar. They had drinks, made new friends, and danced under the stars. What a perfect day!
