Sheila Flynn likes 12’s.
She was born on June 12th at 12:30 and her house address in West Nyack is the number 12.
William Flynn met Sheila on Sept. 30 of this year and the two hit it off instantly. They were talking about how well things were going and about possibly getting married when William Flynn pointed out that there was a rather unique date coming up: Dec. 12, 2012.
“There’s only going to be one 12/12/12 and let’s go for it,” he told Sheila.
And so on Wednesday, surrounded by friends and family, the two were married at Clarkstown Town Hall by Clarkstown Town Clerk Justin Sweet.
“When he said 12/12/12, I said, ‘I love 12’s',” Sheila Flynn said.
The ring William Flynn presented Sheila with on Wednesday, of course, had 12 diamonds in it.
The two met through online dating site Plenty of Fish and went for a cup of coffee. They were both relieved the other person was who they said they were in their profile. Both had met with individuals for get togethers only to find the person lied about a profession or physical attribute.
“That’s no way to start off a relationship,” William Flynn. “You don’t want to lie from the start.”
When they met, William Flynn said it was love at first sight. Sheila Flynn said she liked William, and it was after they went for coffee that her affection grew. The two went for a walk, and Sheila walked away for a minute. When she returned, William Flynn was playing his harmonica for her.
“It was love at first harmonica,” Sheila Flynn said.
