Childhood friends Diana and Shariff first met at age 12 and later became one another’s first love. When they eventually returned to being good friends, they made a pact: If they were both single at age 40, they’d get married.

As young adults, they lost touch when Shariff moved to Florida while Diana remained in their hometown in New York. They had an unexpected reunion when they found themselves involved in the same work project, but by then Diana and Shariff were each married with families of their own.

Still, they kept tabs on one another over the years. Their respective marriages ended, and when Diana learned her first love was single, she remembered their childhood pact and wondered “What if…?”.

“TV talk shows like Oprah and Steve Harvey always tell people’s stories. I thought it’d be great to reconnect with Shariff and figured I’d see if anyone was interested in our story,” Diana recalls, noting that since she and Shariff weren’t in touch, he had no idea of her plan.
