Dr. Dawson Conn is your average Man's Man. You know the type, single and always ready to mingle. The thought of settling down never crosses his mind.
His mother on the other hand has different plans for him. Like all good mothers she wants to see her son married, and starting a family of his own. What better way to see the task complete then trying her hand at matchmaking? Dawson sees what his mother is up to and won't have any part in it. He needed a chick, and he needed one fast.
Danielle Meeks is a second grade teacher new to Maryland. She moved to be closer to her sister, and to have a change of scenery. Sure Danielle was the marrying kind, but you kinda need to be in a relationship to even consider the thought of marriage.
As soon as Dawson sees Danielle he knows that she is the chick he's been looking for. She was the total package, and would definitely get his mother off his back. That's when Dawson has the wonderful idea to make Danielle his fake fiancé.
