Getting down on one knee in their backyard under a 200 year old Oak tree, our very own DJ Mikey (Michael Nickolich) proposed to Sara Claiborne. While everyone has a special love story of their own their’s started in a very unique way. One Sunday night, returning from a wedding, Michael had a crazy idea! Could he sell himself on Facebook market place and various garage sale sites. So he proceeded to list himself for free.
Sure enough his ad for love quickly gained local attention and he was flooded with overwhelming support and encouragement. Turns out you cannot list yourself for sale on Facebook market place, as it violates the policies. However, You are allowed to give yourself away for free on garage sale groups on Facebook.
Immediately messages of encouragement came in, “you will definitely find someone special,” “I am married, but your post made my week.”, “This is epic, and I hope you find someone.”
On top of this, he received hundreds of more messages. Mothers were trying to fix their daughters up with him. Grandmothers asked if he would be interested in taking their grandaughters out, and of course, single ladies and men made their inquiries as well.
Michael decided to take what was initially intended as a joke and use it to find true love. He lined up numerous dates on days that he didn’t have a wedding or event. By his 10th date, he had found Sara. He knew something was very special about her. He decided to cancel all his other dates to see if the spark he felt for Sara would blossom into a passionate fire.
Fast forward almost 2 years later…
