Dan and Amanda met very long ago, but Dan's earliest memory of Amanda was in 5th grade while waiting in the lunch line. He had been invited to Amanda's annual end-of-the-school-year pool party, and it was past RSVP deadline. He tapped her on the shoulder and said that he was going. She shrugged, "okay."

The two rediscovered each other again in high school in 2002 during Commercial Art class with Mr. Murphy. They bonded over Jeff Buckley and Ayn Rand. However, it was through springtime bread deliveries that they became boyfriend and girlfriend. Already having different dates to the prom, Dan and Amanda were jerks and ditched them to spend the entirety of the prom with each other, thus establishing themselves as high school sweethearts.

The relationship endured through college (what a feat!), but alas, hit a road bump 6 months later, which lasted for more than a year. But it was meant to be, as the pair reunited in February 2009, moved in together in July 2009, survived a move to Philadelphia in December 2010, and finally became engaged on December 22, 2010.
