~ The Couple ~
How They Met
Alicia and Adam were both invited to play Dungeons & Dragons with friends. In the dorkiest of ways these two met but it would be a solid year before prospects of love would begin to show. Sunday after Sunday, Alicia and Adam met with their mutual friends and clocked many hours of play. Adam was stragically placed next to Alicia to be a barrier to keep game disagreements between she and others from escalating. Neither knew or even suspected that this seating arrangment would lead to a life long love.
After being a barricade for a while Adam noticed how much he enjoyed his spot at the table, next to this smart, pretty lady. He realized she was the reason he kept coming back week after week. As for Alicia she enjoyed sitting next to Adam. She acknowleged how quirky, smart, funny and cute he was. It wasn't until one night when they were watching Lewis Black together, when Adam put his arm around her that she realized he was potentially more than just a friend. After weeks of shameless flirting, the two finally became a couple on April 28th, 2008.
