You never know where cupid's arrow will strike. In 1990, Leon, 30 and single, came to The Oprah Winfrey Show looking for love. Though he didn't find it in the audience that day, love was waiting for him just around the corner.

When Leon saw Nakkia coming out of a restaurant near Harpo Studios, he boldly asked her for her phone number. Nakkia took a chance, never expecting he'd call her. But Leon called the next day and they dated for six months. Unfortunately, Nakkia wasn't ready for a serious relationship and broke up with Leon. Five months later, when she was still thinking about him, Nakkia tried to call him but Leon's number had been disconnected. Broken-hearted, Nakkia thought she had let "the one" get away.

Fast-forward 14 years. Nakkia was shopping in a mall when she bumped into…Leon! "I thought I was dreaming," says Leon. "I hugged her and didn't want to let her go." Now Leon and Nakkia are inseparable and will be getting married in August.
