Within a week of signing up on Black People Meet , Jocelyn and Devin met online in May of 2018. After their initial meeting, they developed a connection so deep that they went out three more times that same week!
The couple decided to become exclusive that same summer and they have been enjoying each other’s company ever since. After dating for over two years, Jocelyn and Devin became engaged, but had to rearrange their original wedding day plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the day 39 year old Devin popped the question to 36 year old Jocelyn; Devin went to Jocelyn’s father’s house to ask for his blessing; a few days before the couple had planned a trip to Richmond, VA to visit with friends in January 2020. While at the friends’ gathering, Devin played a song; “I Love You” by Machel Montano and asked Jocelyn to dance. She thought he was a little bit tipsy, but obliged. Mid dance, Devin said “you know this song is about you, right?” and got down on one knee to propose. It was a total (but welcomed) surprise!
For the couple, “Seeing each other in the sanctuary for the first time that day was the most memorable moment for us. We were happy to be finally taking this big step we’d been preparing for. We were also super excited that we both looked and felt so good!”
