On August 15, 2012, I signed up for Match.com with the help of my co-workers (thank you!). Samuel was the first person I "winked" at (actually one my co-workers may have winked at him for me, I can't remember), which is how you show you're interested in someone. After receiving my "wink", Samuel quickly emailed me. For the next three days we sent several emails back and forth. On August 18 (just 3 days later!), we had our first date at Grille 29.
We met each other in person for the first time in front of the fountain (see picture for the exact spot).
We had an instant connection and spent hours talking about our love of kitchen gadgets and Cary Grant movies. We didn't even realize how much time had passed until the employees were vacuuming the floors. By our second date, we decided we were officially a couple, and we've been inseparable ever since.
