Abbie & Vince met at Westfield State College in a Shakespeare English class. Neither was too fond of that particular class and formed an immediate bond. The relationship progressed as friends due to the fact that Abbie did not want to date someone from another country. I guess the distance really did not appeal to her as Vince was a resident of Canada. But alas, Vince persevered. He continued to ask Abbie out until he got the answer he was looking for. Yes, I will date you. She explained the reason for her decision to him about distance being a problem and the complications that would arise from a long distance relationship. His response which was incredibly sweet and all the words Abbie needed to hear ” I’m not dating you to date you. I want to date you to keep you” Abbie felt like home to Vince and Abbie certainly found her home and future with Vince. The couple is moving to Tennessee where Vince will be skating with the Knoxville Ice Bears. Abbie is a licensed teacher and will look at pursuing her career in the future. An August 2015 wedding is planned for this very sweet couple.
