Matt and Amanda met the beginning of their college careers through friends. They were best friends, talked for hours and enjoyed each other's company. Amanda never thought in a million years they would be together as a "couple", they were friends and that was it. They were each others' shoulder to cry on through relationships and bad grades, they turned to each other for all their laughs. By their junior year, they both had grown and were both single, hanging out constantly. One night Amanda was having a few drinks and Matt calls asking her to help him come open the doors while he brought in his stuff from home. Matt just bought a new surround system and they watched a movie with the new 500 watts! About mid through they were talking about, "if friends can kiss and still be "just" friends?" Amanda argued yes and Matt argued no. 2 seconds later, Matt and Amanda had their first passionate but very short kiss. Since that moment Matt treated her like the greatest person in the world, he wined and dined her on dates hoping to one day capture her heart, he had loved her all along. Amanda was falling in love with Matt unknowingly, but it was when he took her to Yankee Candle Factory that she knew she wanted to be with him. 2 Months later on New Year's Eve at the strike of Midnight Amanda kissed him and said, "let's make it official," ever since they have been happy in love. 11 months later, Matt proposed at Max Downtown.
