We’re super giddy for them and can’t get enough of the beautiful emotions exuding from these beautiful proposal photos. You certainly want to get all the feels and the full gist of how this love came to be.

Their love story as shared by Simba:
We met through a mutual friend who connected us. The initial connection was online and we started talking. I was in Taiyuan city, China doing my Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Sharrony was in Shanghai city, China getting her BSc in International Business.
Then one thing led to the other and we began dating. That was in 2019. Since we were in different cities, our relationship was low-key a long-distance relationship. So most of the time we would call and text. Nonetheless, the distance didn’t hinder the romance; we would write letters and send gifts to each other to keep the love alive and real. Also from 2019 to the present, we would visit each other at every opportunity we got.
Our visits were affected by the pandemic though. They got affected to the extent that we spent a whole year without seeing each other between 2020 and 2021. But we kept close contact and communication through calls, video calls and texts.
Also, we are both quite the romantic type; sometimes people laugh at our idealized or “old-fashioned” view toward love. We obsess about family and a happy ever after; which is one reason that confirmed that our meeting was not an accident but an answer to both our prayers. Now we get to do life together forever.
