Diamonds Direct Love Story: Erin+ Matthew 


Diamonds Direct: Erin+ Matthew  

Erin was forty minutes late for her very first date with Matthew. But Matthew had some intuition that  she was worth waiting for. And something told Erin that she had finally found the “real gentleman” she had been anticipating her entire life. This is their love story which starts with a song and blossoms with a special song-filled proposal.

How did you two meet? What were your first impressions of each other?

Matthew: I play guitar and was playing a show for the non profit I work for. Erin worked at the venue; I saw her across the room and literally felt like I couldn’t talk or sing. She was the most beautiful person I had ever seen.  I sent some cheesy message to her online. She agreed to go out with me to a coffee date,  and I don’t even drink coffee. She showed up forty minutes late for our date where I pretended to like coffee. For our second date , she came to hear me play guitar, and the rest was history.

Erin: It was one of my busiest days of the year working his company’s event, and I was super stressed. When he came up to talk to me, he was a very cute breath of fresh air! He tracked me down with yes, a cheesy excuse to message me. For the record, I asked HIM on the coffee date. Yes, I was forty minutes late, and no, I do not have a good excuse. A week or so later, he took me to his show, and let me tell you, that guitar playing was something else!

What is your favorite thing to do together as a couple?

Erin: I’d say watching “How I Met Your Mother,” eating pizza or pancakes, being at the lake, and playing with Matthew’s awesome family dog, Otis.

Tell us about your most memorable date:

Matthew: Our first date. She showed up 40 minutes late. I thought I was at the wrong place and even called her. I was so nervous the whole date. Erin:. That’s got to be one of his surprise dates. Either when he took me to the drive-in in Leeds for the first time when I was CERTAIN he was taking me to a Baron’s game, or when he took me to the Christmas Lights show at the Birmingham Racecourse when I was CERTAIN he was taking me to adopt a greyhound. He puts effort into his surprises, which he LOVES to do!

What was your experience like shopping for the ring at Diamonds Direct? Tell us why you love the ring.

Matthew: Excellent. I surprised Erin and brought her there. She tried on what would be the ring and began to cry. I knew that was it. The next day I went back and purchased it. All of the staff do an absolute amazing job at Diamonds Direct

Erin: They are great! I cried A LOT!!

Now that you’ve found “the one,” what advice would you give to someone else about love?

Matthew: Be patient and never settle. There is a special someone out there for everyone.

Erin: Set high standards. Ladies, real gentlemen are out there; wait for them!
