From the BLK app to the Altar: Brianna and Maurice

Updated: Jun 12, 2023



It all started with me being bored at work. I was doing the graveyard shift, and I decided that I’d give dating apps another try. I went to the app store and typed in “Dating apps,” and BLK was the first choice. I’ve never been on there before, so I went ahead and filled out my information, typed up a cute bio, “caribbean gyal” and began swiping. This all happened at 9:30pm, and my shift was over at 11:30pm, so I timed myself. If I didn’t see anyone interesting enough by 11:30pm I was going to delete the app and take it as a sign I should be single.

Mid-way into my swiping, I came across Maurice’s profile and somehow, in the midst of me going through his profile I swiped the wrong way, and his information was gone, I said to myself, if it’s meant to be his stuff, will come back around. To say the least, his picture surely came back around, and I swiped correctly this time. We began talking, exchanged numbers, and started going out on a bunch of dates, traveling together, and sharing a whole lot of wonderful memories.11 months later, we are now happily engaged and planning our destination wedding in Belize. Here’s to happily ever after.

You guys were lucky and not many would be as lucky as you. Many ladies have missed their soulmates because they chose to ghost the ones who love them, just cos of a silly reason and look for Mr. Perfect that don’t exist. Wish you guy’s everlasting love

How long would one say that one year is not enough time to get married, you can date for two, three or even four years and then married and get a Divorce within that same year, Love is Love. And if he or she the One, make it official...Time is precious and you want to spend the rest of your life with someone that's compatible with you, and you with her, in all facets....Nothing is Perfect or guaranteed, Love is like a Dice game, it's a Crap shoot and you want or hope to throw 7 or 11, if not you wanna make your point....So good Luck, and Keep GOD first, and definitely keep the Faith.....ya dig

I totally disagree. A man knows what he wants. There is no time limit on how fast a person should be married if that is what they want.
