Our Story

After matching online and texting for a couple of weeks, we met up after work in February 2020. Within a few short hours we hit it off, recited movie quotes, and quickly realized we had a lot of things (and Facebook friends) in common. After a great second date at a Rangers game, we knew a third date was imminent. What we didn’t know was that COVID was about to delay that next date for two months! We managed to keep each other laughing over the phone and on text every day until May and figured if we could pull that off the rest would be a piece of cake. So, four years, a new apartment and an engagement in Montauk later here we are. Starting a new chapter but still watching old Seinfeld episodes and endlessly quoting Dumb and Dumber.
So, you’re saying there’s a chance…
