Married couples often hear the question, “Where did you guys meet?” And the usual answers include through friends, during college, at work or on a dating app. But some romances begin in the most unusual manner. For instance, at a cemetery or even a Durga Puja pandal.
According to Metro UK, US-based Jason’s love story began with a single dollar note that he wanted to return for a packet of chewing gum. The Independent reports that he narrated the story in response to the Reddit question “What is the most a dollar has ever gotten you?”
Jason (Jfreak7) revealed, “Back in Jr. High, I liked a girl and flirted with her quite a bit. One time, during a band trip, we stopped at a gas station and she bought me a pack of gum. I tried to pay her back $1 but she refused. So, I slipped the $1 in her pocket. She then slipped the dollar in my backpack and so began the back and forth with the $1 bill.”
“We found silly ways to give it back and forth. I mailed it to her house. She stuffed it in a gum wrapper and offered me a piece. I then decided that I would ask her out on this $1. I wrote, “Will you go out with me” on it and put it in a note and gave it to her. She said yes (of course, it would be a terrible story otherwise, I suppose).”
He further added that after being together 4 years, he used the same note to propose! The couple has now been married for 15 years and are parents to 3 children. And here is what started it all, kept safely all these years.
People loved his story filled with cuteness and romance. They even suggested it be turned into a movie!
Their kids will absolutely enjoy hearing this ‘How I Met Your Mother’ story, don’t you think?
