Diamonds Direct Love Story: Hunter & Dabney

dabneyhunterengagement-25For some, distance in a relationship may create the space that will take them their separate ways over time. But for Hunter Brock and Dabney Chitwood, distance proved to be the spark that ignited what is now a lifetime of love. For ten weeks Hunter wrote to Dabney and through this, began to realize she was in fact, “the one.” The two are thrilled to walk on this journey called life together. This is their love story.   

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

H: We met at Samford University our freshman year. She had an outgoing personality and I was immediately attracted to it!

D: We met at Samford University and our first encounter as friends was at a social event with my sorority. I thought he was cute and kind!

Describe your partner in three words.

H: Joyful, positive, selfless.

D: Trustworthy, compassionate, a leader.

What is your most memorable date together?

H: Our very first date is the most memorable for me. I asked Dabney out after months of hanging out and we went to dinner. I had written her a letter and after the date was over, I asked her if she wanted to be in a relationship. She said yes, but about ten minutes later, said no because it was “going too fast.” Four days later she was ready. I guess those four days were all she needed!

D: When we went to California together to visit family. We spent an entire day in Santa Monica, riding the ferris wheel, eating seafood, playing carnival games and walking along the beach. It is one of my favorite memories we have together!

H: After just five months of dating, I was in Kenya for the summer and she was in Honduras. I decided to write letters to Dabney everyday while I was gone so that I could give them to her when I got back. Writing those letters affirmed she was the one I wanted to be with.

D: I realized that he was the one at a similar time in our relationship. It was in preparation of our summer apart that I knew Hunter was the one I wanted to be with. He wrote me a letter every day he was gone for ten weeks. He was truly the man I had always prayed for.
