This is the time of year when couples profess their love to each other with gifts, balloons, candy and cards. For Kayla Ann Miller, a senior Communications Studies major at Frostburg State University, every day is Valentine’s Day.
Kayla had a certain type of mate in mind but Cupid had other plans. Not only is Kayla graduating in May but getting married a few months later.
Whether you are part of a couple or not, her interview provides tips that can be gleaned for future reference.
COUPLE: Kayla Ann Miller, 22, Brian, 33
WHEN THEY MET
They met at Black Bear Tavern in McHenry, MD, on April 28, 2012.
He asked her to dance and they have been inseparable ever since.
WHEN HE PROPOSED
Brian proposed at the Black Bear Tavern almost four months to the day they met on August 26, 2013
WHY SHE LOVES HIM
Brian always does special things for Kayla like sometimes visiting her at Frostburg State University or her job for lunch; holding her hand and telling her he loves her in public; recently making her tea when she was sick, and doing most of the cooking and cleaning.
Kayla says Brian is the type that would take the shirt off his back to help anyone if he had to.
She adds that although her fiancé is sweet and shows his love (often), he is a manly, man. He lifts weights and yells at the television, especially during the Super Bowl game.
Their 11-year age difference didn’t sit well with her parents in the beginning. Brian being divorced with a 7-year-old son, Evan, didn’t make matters better. However, after watching the couple interact with each other, her parents had a change of heart and accepted Brian and Kayla’s relationship.
The age difference makes some conversations a little challenging because will talk about topics Kayla isn’t aware of because she wasn’t born or was very young. This isn’t too much of a problem, however, because Kayla was laughing when talks about the situation.
They talked about their issues all the time and reassured each other of how they really felt and the agreed the past is the past
KAYLA’S FINAL WORDS
Although, there is a large age difference, they do have many other things in common, such as football and sports. Also, they compromise and watch what each other wants to watch.

“He does all these little things that I never had anyone ever do.”
“He wasn’t the guy I’d imagine having kids with, being older with; but, I wouldn’t change it”
