Most movies depict couples meeting for the first time while reaching for a same piece of fruit at a grocery store or getting caught in a city rain storm and trapped under the same awning. While that may happen for a small segment of the population, it is probably not the norm. People just swipe right on their smartphones (Tinder reference).
We both lived in the DC area in the mid to late 2000's. We did not live that far from one another. It was not uncommon that we were hanging out bars right next to one another on the same night. It wasn't until we came back to Philly that we met for the first time in June 2014. While our meeting was thanks to the help of a dating app. (not Tinder), we still think it was rather serendipitous. Now, we are excited to celebrate with you all!
