You are at the hospital one afternoon visiting your good friend who just gave birth to her first child. After meeting the adorable little girl and offering your sincerest congratulations to your friend and her husband, you think it’s time to leave and let the new mommy get some much-needed rest. Since the maternity ward is on the seventh floor, you decide to take the elevator instead of the stairs. The lift is just about to close, when you catch a glimpse of an attractive man jogging down the hall towards you. It doesn’t look like he’s going to make it in time, so you hold the doors open for him, allowing him to join you in the otherwise empty car. He thanks you, and you’re feeling quite proud of yourself for having done a (albeit minor) good deed.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t last long, as you are only descending for a few seconds when you feel the car abruptly stop between floors four and three. You’re stuck. You and the man begin frantically calling for help, but it doesn’t seem like anyone can hear you. Both of you start getting panicky, but manage to calm each other down somewhat by reasoning that help must be on its way by now. You end up being trapped together for almost two hours while the technicians work to get the elevator up and running again – and in that time, learn quite a bit about your companion. He introduces himself as (3)______ ______ ______ (first, middle(s) and last, doesn’t have to be real) and he is (4)…
(A) a twenty-eight year old chef at an urban new restaurant downtown. He is always on the move and loves exploring and trying new things – whether it’s taking a spontaneous trip to Japan or discovering a new recipe. He doesn’t like lazing around the house on weekends and is happiest when he is doing something outdoors, like hiking. He is very exuberant, has a great sense of adventure, and believes that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
(B) a thirty-nine year old mystery novelist whose latest book has reached the New York Times Bestseller List. He is very creative and empathetic, and good at putting himself in someone else’s position as well as protective of friends and family. In groups, he is often quiet and spends a lot of time thinking rather than talking, and only speaks when he has something important to say. He is practical, fair-minded, and logical, preferring to hear both sides of an issue before taking a side.
(C) a twenty-five year old law student who works as a life guard at the local beach. He is very ambitious and wants to make a difference fighting for “the little guy” when he finally becomes a lawyer. Sometimes he has trouble balancing work and play, and has a tendency to forget to have fun once in a while. He is a hard worker, competitive, and determined to reach his goals in life.
(D) a thirty-three year old carpenter. He is very much a jeans-and-t-shirt kind of guy and doesn’t like to get dressed up very often. He has only ever worn a suit three times in his life and would much prefer to order a pizza and veg out on the couch than go somewhere fancy or upscale. He likes to feel cozy and content and has no tolerance for pretentious, stuffy people who try to make themselves sound much more interesting than they really are.
(E) a thirty year old business owner with a series of coffee shops spread out around the city. He comes from a slightly well-to-do family and has never wanted for anything when he was growing up. As a result, he has somewhat expensive tastes and likes to live in luxury. He is also very generous, however, and always donates a portion of his profits to local charity organizations, as well as volunteers his time with them on his days off.
After the whole ordeal is over with and the two of you are freed, you decide to make something good come of the situation and set up fun a date for the following weekend, going (5)…:
(A) ice skating

The date goes very well and before you know it, it’s a year later and you’re moving in with him. About six months after you are both settled into your new place, you wake up one morning to find a note on the pillow next to you. It is a cryptic set of instructions from your boyfriend, which end up leading you to all of the important places the you both have visited in the last year-and-a-half, picking up a note in every location to tell you where to go next.
The final note leads you to the site of your very first date, where your boyfriend is waiting with a ring in his hand. You are overwhelmed that he would go through so much trouble to orchestrate such a lovely gesture, and half-laugh, half-cry out a “Yes!” when he finally asks you to marry him.
