PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Nothing says love more than wings, beer, and scantily clad women.

Rifici, in his late 50’s, was eliminated from Wing Bowl 25 — his third time competing (1999, 2000) in the event. After he was eliminated, Rifici went over to White, who is in her early 60’s, and proposed.

White, despite being from Philadelphia, was attending his first ever Wing Bowl.

White and Rifici began dating on April 23rd, 2014 thanks to Match.com. White has two children, Will and Jaimie, and two grandchildren Michael and Ava. Rifici has three sons Charles, Justin, and Brian.

“I have been saving to propose and spend the rest of my life by her side,” Rifici told CBSPhilly.com. “Deb fell in love with my sense of humor and heart day one. I fell in love with her smile and her voice hour one.”

White and Rifici moved in together in August of last summer.

Rifici says they “both love animals, children, and elderly people — especially since we are two.”
