You never know who you’re going to find with Skout’s Meet People feature. Some people meet chat buddies, some find activity partners, and others even meet their future spouses. When Daniel first saw Amber on Meet People almost a year and a half ago, he was struck by her eyes, a profile that was compatible with his, and proximity – Skout’s geo-location feature lets you find people in your area.
“I felt like she was someone I had to get to know better,” says Daniel.
Amber, though, had just ended another relationship when a friend downloaded Skout onto her phone.
“I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular on Skout,” Amber says.
Though torn about considering a new relationship so quickly, she chatted with Daniel for a month before agreeing to meet in real life.
“Every conversation we had for that month before we met in person was honest and real,” says Daniel, who then proceeded to get lost and took two hours to meet up with Amber.
“It was worth it when I finally met the girl I had been talking to,” Daniel says. “Amber is a gorgeous and kind person. She always tries the things that I enjoy, and we have a lot of shared interests.”
Amber herself was smitten at first sight. Initially hesitant about meeting someone new, “once I met him and saw who he really was outside of a social media outlet, all my doubts and fears were gone,” she says.
For the next year and a half, Amber and Daniel got to know each other. Daniel learned all about Amber’s random 2 a.m. food cravings – as well as her dedication to her job as a daycare teacher.
“She is amazing with kids, and that’s one of the things I love most,” Daniel says.
Meanwhile, “my family calls him the cheese to my cracker,” says Amber.
On Amber’s birthday, Daniel proposed.
“We've started planning our spring wedding, and it's all thanks to Skout!” Amber says.
