CC's Youngest Couple Announces Engagement
We are so excited for Amy (27) and Justin (31)! Because he is from the Peoria area, we've met Justin a few times at our speed dating events. Although he was usually the youngest one in attendance, Justin kept a positive attitude about his belief and involvement in Cache' Connections. He's also been great about keeping us informed on the progress of his budding relationship with Amy, sometimes asking for the matchmakers' advice.
Although Justin and Amy live about three hours apart, their connection was too strong to dismiss. It sounds like they've been busy over the past months, often meeting at Starved Rock, like some of our other couples do. Here is their official story that can be found on the Cache' Couples page:
Justin heard of Cache' Connections through some friends. Justin went to a quick date event and enjoyed the atmosphere and feel of Cache. After trying a few events and not running into anyone around his age, he tried the online dating of Cache in May of 2011. He felt a tugging on his heart to join online. A week later Justin came across Amy's profile and decided to message her. They hit it off and after e-mailing back and forth they decided to meet.
Amy accidentally friended Cache on Facebook. She didn't even know what they were. Amy looked at the website for over a year. They just kept popping up. She liked that they were overtly Christian, and pointed towards marriage. Then a friend of hers had her 30th birthday, and she signed up for eharmony. Amy admired her friend for being so intentional. So when the Peoria Expo came up, Amy dragged her friend down to Peoria to check it out. She signed up in May as well and answered Justin's message.
After the first initial meeting, Justin and Amy have continued to get together every weekend. Justin asked Amy to marry him October 1st. They are planning for a February wedding.
