Love StoryMarlin and Robert first met at work. "We're both Software Engineers in our company. We didn’t really talk or even say hi to each other before, until he started visiting me in my cube," shares Marlin. Robert would often stop by Marlin’s station to start a conversation even when he knew that she was busy with work. At first she found this annoying, until their conversations started getting longer, that she realized how fond she was of him.
Their small talks eventually led to several dinner dates. Marlin shares, "He first asked me to join him to try a dish at one of his favorite restaurants. He kept asking me out since, either with other co-workers or just us. He did it so skillfully that it doesn't sound like it's a date. So maybe that's why I kept saying yes. Eventually, he started to grow on me. His persistence paid off." Since then, the two have been inseparable.
It was during their trip to Europe that Robert proposed. Robert says he had tried at least five times to ask her to marry him, but the circumstances just didn’t permit him to do it smoothly. Wrong tables, lost tickets, noisy people were just some of the distractions that almost stopped him from proposing. Finally, one evening, while they were in front of the Eiffel tower, he found his perfect timing and asked her to be his wife.
