It was January 29, 2014 Dedrick decided to message Evelina via social media. As usual she brushed him off however, he didn’t stop there. He continued to message her every other day asking how she was doing and even checking to see how her day was. Some times she replied but most of the time she left him on READ! Time went on as he continued to message her and send her funny photos waiting for a reply. July 23, 2016 he asked for her phone number and believe it or not she gave it to him. Dedrick felt as if his access had just been granted. He went from messaging her in her DM to sending “Good Morning” texts still trying to make his way in her life. After a few months passing she finally took him up on an offer and let him take her on a date. They went to Jac’s Bowling Alley and Buffalo Wild Wings. The two seemed to have enjoyed themselves although they both sucked at bowling. At that point the ice had been broken and they seem to be more comfortable with each other. Less texting and more talking. The two became an official couple nine months later. Now, after 4 years of being in a serious relationship, on July 17, 2020, Dedrick popped the question and asked Evelina to marry him. She said “YES”. On April 24, 2021 they will become Mr. & Mrs. McGriff…it was worth the wait.
