It was a typical Saturday night out at the local bar when their paths crossed for the very first time. Amanda had stepped out to get some fresh air with a couple friends. It began to rain and as she looked for a place of refuge, she kindly excused herself through a group of guys. One of the guys in the group tried getting her attention by asking her questions, but she kindly brushed him off and kept moving on. Later on in the evening while on the dance floor with her friends that same guy that tried getting her attention outside caught her eye while dancing. She realized then that she’s actually seen him a few times before and thought he was cute but never had the courage to start up a conversation. She worked up the courage and somehow Amanda managed to get Duarte’s attention again. This is where any romance novel would say “and the rest is history” but, in reality, the first five minutes of the conversation involved him trying to teach her how to pronounce him name, and when he gave up and told her to just call him D. But as fate would have it, they spent the rest of the night talking and exchanged numbers. The night didn’t end there, they texted back and fourth for what seemed for hours before she finally fell asleep mid text. And then, as they say, the rest is history….
Meet Amanda + Duarte.
