In the summer of 2015, Sandy, Krysta's mom approached Rosie, in hopes of finding a suitable match for her only daughter. Rosie thought long and hard until she had a bright idea; her longest friend Floriane's son was set to return to Canada after 5 years abroad. Funny enough, Floriane was also thinking about finding a suitable match for Jonathan. Correspondence with photos circulated between the three ladies, which led to Krysta reaching out to Jonathan via Facebook on a cold Thanksgiving night. Krysta received a response almost immediately despite the 8 hour time difference.
The two exchanged messages daily over the coming months and finally met shortly before Christmas 2015, when Jonathan was visiting for the holidays. The first date was a success and the pair hit it off. The time came all too soon when Jonathan needed to return to the Netherlands. The two continued to talk daily with a clear goal to kick things off upon his official return to Canada in April 2016.
After a few more visits in between, the time had come for them to start an official relationship and the two were inseparable. On Christmas of 2016, Jonathan told Krysta that he loved her (only six months after Krysta had professed her love to him). Exactly one year later, Jonathan pulled off a grand surprise; he had hidden a ring in their Christmas tree! Between the two of them and their beloved fur babies, he proposed a lifelong commitment between the two. She said YES!
