I contemplated putting this in the Personal forum but I think it belongs here more.

Many of you probably do not know who I am, but I joined DDO just about 5 years ago (under another username). Like many of you, I came across the site by accident, through a Google search, read a few debates and decided to join so that I could vote. Shortly thereafter, I discovered the forums, which I found to have really interesting and diverse ideas.

DDO has been integral in my growth as a person, in more ways than anyone can know.

But the most important part is Maikuru and I are engaged!

Maikuru has been a member on DDO for nearly 6 years if it hasn't be 6 years already. It's pretty crazy looking at old threads and seeing instances where we were both in the thread but not speaking directly to each other, or we crossed each other's paths in passing. He sent me a message almost 2 years ago and we've been inseparable ever since. If it weren't for DDO, a sheltered Nigerian-born Canadian girl would never have met some kid from Camden, New Jersey :p So thank you.

Despite not being active anymore, I felt I had to share a DDO-first <3

Who says there are no women on the internet?

Tulle is the love of my life and I am incredibly fortunate to have her. We wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for DDO. This site brought us together, so we both really want to thank everyone who has made this such a vibrant, inviting, and loving community. We may be the first DDO engagement, but we don't have to be the last!

A very special shout out to Danielle for a few personal touches that helped move us along.
