In true Dine & Dish fashion, Bachelor Nation stars Ashley and Jared gave Glorianna some tough love on her profile. While it has to be intimidating having your profile dissected for all to see, they must have done something right because Glorianna has some amazing news: she’s engaged!
Glorianna met Troy shortly after her time on Dine & Dish, and when she reached out to let us know she’d not only found an incredible guy but was also getting married, we simply had to get the deets… so here they are!
Glorianna, what changes did you make on your Plenty of Fish profile after you left Dine & Dish?
The first thing I remember doing when I got home from Dine & Dish was updating my profile picture to something more approachable! Since Ashley and Jared really expressed the differences they noticed in my Plenty of Fish profile photos at Dine & Dish, I decided that changing my profile image to a smiling face represented my personality better. I also changed the way I described myself in the “About Me” section on my profile. I changed the shorter, blunt sentences to warmer sentences with a little more detail. With more insight now, I can see how these details can help the person fishing gather a better understanding of who the person is when they’re looking at someone’s profile, which helps to create a more satisfying experience.
What did you learn from the rest of the cast and Ashley and Jared during the taping of Dine & Dish?
I learned that it’s a good thing to be a hygiene enthusiast (I mean, who doesn’t love good hygiene?) and that it’s great to have well-rounded photo variety on your profile, showing all sides of yourself! I had photos showing my active, sporty, and nature-loving sides.
Do you think these changes you made helped you find Troy on Plenty of Fish?
Definitely! Troy said that it was really easy to understand who I was by the content on my profile and I thought – that’s surely a good thing.
Troy, what was it that caught your eye about Glorianna’s profile? How did you come upon it?
The first thing that caught my eye about Glorianna’s profile was definitely her profile photo. I actually came across it after narrowing down my search for my ideal type of woman. Her profile was the first to appear after doing so.
When did you two meet on Plenty of Fish and how long was it after you made the changes to your profile?
February 29th was the day that we met on Plenty of Fish. I actually made the changes to my profile the day after filming Dine & Dish which would have been January 25th – so Troy and I met online about a month later!
What was your first date like? Was it a first “meet” or first “date”?
Our first meet up went so well that it turned into our first date! We had initially planned to meet up just to talk for a bit but ended up creating a romantic bonfire followed by some baking in the kitchen, a long entertaining conversation on the couch, and finally falling asleep wrapped in our own blankets.
Troy, what is your favorite thing about Glorianna?
My favorite thing about Glorianna is definitely her personality. There are so many different elements to her. She can be serious when she needs to be, goofy, spontaneous, the list goes on!
Glorianna, what is your favorite thing about Troy?
Troy has the best personality and my favorite thing about him is the more I get to know him the more I find out how similar we are.
During these times of social distancing, what are you two doing to maintain your relationship?
We’ve purchased workout items for our newly created home gym and we’ve bought several outdoor toys and gadgets to keep us entertained. We also have movie nights, cooking competitions, and come up with new cocktail recipes. We will finish our evenings by going on little jogs to watch the sunset.
Fortunately, Glorianna and Troy were able to spend a ton of quality time together before COVID-19 restrictions came into full effect, and have been happily living together after getting engaged in April. Their advice for other couples dating from a distance? Video call often, even if it seems mundane. At the start of their relationship, Glorianna and Troy had virtual lunch dates every single day they were apart…adorable! Congratulations to you both!
