Liberian Love Story
Ruth started a new job in August 2016 and decided to start dating again. You know, "New job, New love". Not even a week after Ruth started her job, she received a text from an unknown number. It was Ebenezer Williams.
You see, one of Ruth's aunts had given Ruth's number to Ebenezer, in May of 2016, while he was visiting from North Carolina. Ruth's aunt is a firm believer of Liberians knowing other Liberians. Well, these two Liberians got to know each other as well as you can know a person over phone calls and texts.
After a month of calls and texts, Ebenezer and Ruth went on their first date. This was their first time seeing each other. Ruth remembers seeing Ebenezer walk towards her in his chill and swagger fashion. Ebenezer remembers seeing Ruth with her afro puff and energetic vibe. They liked what they saw. However, it was the four hour conversation about their dreams, goals and values that made the night simply unforgettable.
Ruth and Ebenezer nurtured their friendship over the next three months. Ebenezer's work trips to the DC area became more frequent allowing them to see each other more often. In January of 2017, Ebenezer moved back to Maryland. In November of 2018, he asked Ruth to be his wife and the rest will be the best!
