Love was in the air on Friday at the Tampa International Airport! A viral video on TikTok posted by Ada Yamila Ava showed a man, a dermatologist from the Tampa area, proposing to a woman, who was his high school sweetheart, at the airport. And, of course, his now-fiance said yes to him after he gave a heartfelt speech on all the things the man loved about her. When he went to their 50th class reunion he reconnected with her and there were definitely sparks. So she traveled from California to Tampa to see him.
But everything changed three weeks ago when McMeekin RSVP’d to his 60th high school reunion happening in August.
"Then I hear from her, and she says, ‘I'm really looking forward to seeing you again,’" McMeekin said with a chuckle.
"We admired each other from a distance," Tampa dermatologist McMeekin said. "I never thought I had a chance with her."
In the beginning of the social media video, the man is seen walking with the woman towards a seating section of the airport but before she sits down, she is handed flowers by the man. The man then shows the woman a piece of jewelry before he gets a pillow to put on the ground as he kneels down to speak to her.
"I thought, thank God I don't wear makeup. I would have stuff just running down my face," Gambell said. "I was crying."
While the couple admits their timeline is fast, they said they know their connection is real and can’t wait any longer.
The TikTolk video of this wonderful proposal has gone crazy viral! It also made the evening news.
