Angelique and Sawyer actually met at a house party. Neither of them is a party-type, but they were convinced by their friends to get out for at least one night. Sawyer couldn’t take his eyes from Angelique and ask his friends to introduce him. He gave her his number, but she never texted him, so Sawyer showed up at a friend’s house where she hung out.
The deal-breaker was when Sawyer won the attention of her dog, and it just snowballed from there. Angelique became a part of his daily life, and he posts videos with them both enjoying their travels.
