THE SHORT VERSION They met through mutual friends. THE LONG VERSION They first met back in 2016 while hanging out with mutual friends. It'll surprise no one to hear that although they met in 2016, they didn't have their first conversation until 2017. Years went by and it appeared that the stars would never align for them. But in January of 2020 she gave it a shot—she texted him. An hour passed before he finally replied (he was busy golfing—shocker). They made plans to grab a drink the following week at Lock 32. But before the date arrived, they decided to spontaneously meet up to listen to a mutually-loved local band, Something Else, and had a blast dancing and catching up. They went to Lock 32 later that week and had the best and final first date of their lives.
