Today I have the joy of sharing the story of Hunter and Igor’s amazing and perfect intimate wedding at the spectacular San Francisco City Hall. In California, of course. Lucky for you, instead of torturing you with my bad jokes, we have Hunter and Igor’s own hilarious words to tell their story.
How did the two of you meet?
We both decided to give online dating a spin (because other than boring conversationalists and serial killers, what could go wrong?) and had joined OK Cupid, which gives users the option to answer a huge and varied list of question. I (Igor), had this little gem of an answer pop up on my landing page randomly:
Q: Is it ever ok to kill someone?
A: Ok, I know I’m supposed to answer “no” here and I know I’m Godwin-ing myself but, c’mon guys, Hitler. We can all agree that it’s ok to kill Hitler, right?
She was cute, had exactly my sense of humor, and knew what Godwin’s law was, so it was biological imperative to message her.
How did you know this was “the one” for you?
Hunter: Igor is one of the few truly good people I’ve ever met and he doesn’t even realize how exceptional he is. I knew from the first time we met that he was funny, and smart, and very attractive but it wasn’t until we’d been dating for a few weeks that I realized he was also a ridiculously good person. We were walking my dog (Jackson) and ran out “waste” bags, but ended up needing one more. We were pretty far from the house and Jackson had done the dirty deed in an out of the way bush that was on an unclaimed strip of vacant grass by the road.
Igor, without a thought, started walking back to the house to get another bag. It never occurred to him that, without any consequences, he could just leave it there. My deeply cynical little head is always running a cost-benefit analysis of my actions, but he automatically subjected himself to inconvenience just to make the lives of complete strangers a little better, without any hope of personal gain from that action.
He’s incredible, and being around him not only makes me happy, safe, challenged and content, it also improves my Alignment. I’m a very lucky girl.
How did you get engaged?
