Progressive Sweethearts: Uri & Tiyana Robinson
By Megan Perry
Tiyana initially noticed Uri from looking at a mutual friend’s pictures on Facebook. She wrote him inquiring about his business, which in turn resulted in a conversation about each other’s personal lives. Over time, they enjoyed each other’s conversations and realized that there definitely were sparks. There was only one problem. Tiyana lived in Cambodia working for an International Hair Extensions company and Uri lived in Washington, DC doing entrepreneurial work. A year later, when Tiyana finally arrived back from her business endeavors abroad, Uri drove to New Jersey to see her and they have been inseparable ever since.
Two years later during their 2-year dating anniversary, Uri blindfolded Tiyana for a special occasion during brunch. To her surprise, Uri had her family, his family/friends, and all of her line sisters present as he proposed to her at their favorite restaurant. Magic happens!
