They met in December 2019 and for David, it was love at first sight. To David Masereka, when you fall in love, some things become hard to explain. When they met, he was sure he loved Prossy Biira and was ready to do anything to win her over.
“I do not know how we became friends. In love, sometimes it is hard to explain some things. A friend introduced Prossy to me and I was smitten. My heart ‘changed’ and it was like God had given me what I was praying for. She was the friend that I needed and whatever she talked about was what I had been craving to hear. If there was anything bad about her, I knew we would sort that out later but I was sure I loved her,” David recounts.
There is a special trait of Prossy that struck David.
“She is a simple and open-minded person like myself. We both knew most of the things about ourselves and this gave a boost to our decision after some time,” he says.
David adds it was just about Prossy telling her parents because he was ready to meet them.
“It took me about five months to be on the same page with David. I wanted to get married but needed to first establish certain things like knowing a bit more about him before making the final decision,” Prossy says.
They had phone conversations and only met twice during the five months. There were limited dates and meetings because the two lived districts apart. Prossy lived in Kasese while David lived in Mityana District where he works. The two were distant physically but after five months, she was convinced that she was in love with him.
“He was a man of his word, hardworking and caring. Falling in love with him was easy,” Prossy recalls.
After she was sure about her feelings in May 2020, she told her brother who told their parents that she was seeing someone who was going to marry her. “It is usually hard to directly tell parents that you are seeing someone. I first told my elder brother and that is how our culture is. When our parents learnt about it, they called me and then it was easier for me to confirm,” she says. Click to read more…
