ABC- Cameron Hill wasn't sure if the woman he saved from a domestic violence attack in January 2012 would even live. But just more than three years since the attack, the EMT is now happy to call that woman his fiancee.
EMT Cameron Hill proposed to his girlfriend Melissa Dohme before Monday's Tampa Bay Rays game. Dohme was invited to throw the first pitch, where Hill then carried out a ball to her as she stood on the mound.
Written on that ball were the words "will you marry me?" Dohme happily said yes.
The couple's story began in January 2012 when Hill saved Dohme's life. He responded to a 911 call after Dohme had been brutally stabbed 32 times by her boyfriend outside her home in Crest Park, Fla.
"It was so bad...you couldn't tell she was blonde," Hill told the Tampa Bay Times.
After Dohme recovered from the incident, she reconnected with Hill that fall and felt a spark towards him. "I had this feeling about him," Dohme told the Tampa Bay Times. By December 2012, they were dating.
Now this guy has got the right idea. The biggest battle in a relationship is getting the upper hand. Most people do that by dating someone less good looking than them, or making sure that they are the person that cares less than their counterpart. Cameron Hill was having none of that. He didn't want to date down. He didn't want to put bounds on his love. Well, you want to know the best way to wrap your future wife around your finger? Save her life after a gruesome domestic dispute. Hell, he shouldn't have even waited until she got out of the hospital. Should have asked her out while she was bleeding out on the stretcher. I mean look at this guy with a tee shirt under his button down and some kind of weird faux hawk. This guy wasn't pulling any attractive blonde girls without spending the rest of his life kissing their ass. Now he's got a cute finance and the ultimate trump card.
I don't know how IOU's work, but I am pretty sure this guy has at least one per stab wound. Doesn't want to go visit her family? "That's fine hunny." Wants to go golfing on Sunday morning instead of going curtain shopping? "Whatever you want to do sweetheart." Comes home two hours late reeking of booze and strippers after a night out with the boys? "Did you have fun, dear?." Take this proposal for instance. Proposing at a game is always a mistake. Women hate that shit. Don't let her fool you. She had to say yes. She had to act like the happiest person in the world. This woman is literally a slave in her own relationship. What can't this guy get away with? I know, bringing up something that happened years ago is a bit of a chick move, but if that something is saving your fiancé from Freddy Kruger then you bet your ass I'm using it every chance I get. You can't just let Edward Scissor Hands ex-girlfriend forget how much of a step up you are. The thing that sucks most about relationships is worrying about what the other person wants to do. Not anymore. One day as the hero bought this guy a lifetime* of selfishness.
*In reality it probably only bought him like 2 months of selfishness. Fucking women.
P.S. Hoping the ex is locked up for a long, long time. No women is worth the trouble of the man that stabbed her THIRTY-TWO times.
