There’s something about love, isn’t there? The emotional fanfare of finding someone perfect is aspirational.
But this couple’s story really is one of a kind and they have truly wowed the internet…
But the searching can make it seem like it’s basically an impossibility. It can be a jungle out there, folks!
In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for “the one.”
But once you find it, for many of us, it really does make every part of life seem a little bit brighter.
Finding the person who’s a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.
Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.
And for many women in particular, the marriage fantasy is something they spend a lot of time planning for.
There’s one love story that truly captivates the internet.
The odds of this actually happening are so low…
Jessica and Aaron met in 2007 as students at rival high schools in Taunton, Massachusetts.
And soon started dating.
“I knew from the very beginning that he was different—he was respectful, and he made me laugh” Jessica revealed to PEOPLE.
“From the start, we both knew we were right for each other.”
Because the couple soon realized they had more in common than they initially thought.
“Very early on, we found out we have the same birthday, probably when we were talking on AIM back in the day,” Jessica explained.
After connecting the dots, Jessica and Aaron realized something incredible.
But they were born in the exact same hospital.
What are the odds of that? And it doesn’t even end there…
And, according to a newspaper clipping Jessica’s grandmother saved, they were the only babies listed to have been born in the hospital that day.
“I didn’t believe him at first when he told me he had the same birthday, it was crazy, I thought he was trying to pull a smooth one and win me over.
“Every birthday is a big running joke in the family, and we always celebrate every year with them and our group of friends.”
He popped the question as the pair walked through Boston Public Garden and asked both family and friends to hide throughout the park as a surprise.
The romantic proposal caught Jessica “totally off guard,” but it clearly did the trick because she said yes!
The location is special to Jessica, as 5 generations of her family have now wed there.
“We’re still getting ready for the married life, but it’s been awesome so far,” she says. “But we hope our story can bring a smile to people’s faces, because that’s what the world needs right now.”
