Faces of the Boom: A match made in the Oil Patch

Email

WILLISTON -- Amanda Propper was so nervous for her first date in North Dakota, she had her friends wait across the street.

"I didn't want to go. I hadn't dated anybody up here," said Propper, who moved from Georgia to Watford City about 1½ years ago. "That wasn't in the plan. I didn't want to date, I just worked."

But the 36-year-old found she had much in common with Chris Kamph, an oilfield electrician from Idaho she met through a mutual friend.
