“Hello. Nice to meet you.” She said upon meeting Ryan in passing at Lucas Park Grill in St.Louis. He knew he wanted more than introductions and pleasantries. He wanted to know her. So the very next day when a random number was texting her and asking her out – upon learning it was Ryan, Trisha figured “why not!”. He didn’t know her favorite food was Mexican, but the fact that he took her to Chava’s Mexican Restaurant was definitely a plus. They talked about family, friends, work, and extra curricular activities, and things went flawlessly. Before they knew it, it was time to say goodnight – both hoping for a second date. And there was a second, and a third, and so on. Until one day, everything would change…

Abby met Adam one night out at a local bar. It was just by chance that they were introduced. He thought he had no chance, but what he didn’t know was that there was something about him she liked. It may have been his smile looking back that initially made her stop and take notice. But upon learning more about his personality – she just had to know him better… and she would get that opportunity.

However annoying he may have seemed didn’t matter, because Kelsey had a boyfriend so she never gave it a second thought. Time passed and and Kelsey eventually became single, and then one day Justin showed up on her front door step, and now 7 years later – they’ve been together ever since.
Jennifer & Ned went to school together their entire lives. Hanging out in the same circles, but never dating. Mutual friends would tell Jennifer that Ned liked her and that she should go out with him, but she would dismiss the notion because she treasured their friendship and never wanted to lose that. During college Jennifer found herself newly single, and there was Ned – right there waiting. He’d been patiently waiting as if he knew it would eventually happen. And happen it did. They dated for about a year and then had some time apart. Admittedly, it may not be the way it happens in fairytales. Real life isn’t perfect, but sometimes puts two people perfectly back together. And that’s just what happened. No one else got her like he did. No one else looked at him like she did. And together the two decided to make a go of it again, and this time it would never end.
They both worked at the Arch, and he was crossing her path way more than what could be considered “coincidental”. After years of casual conversations, innocent flirting, and an overwhelming chemistry Coty finally asked Lauren out in 2008; ask Coty for the story, and he’ll say he begged her to go out with him for years. For their actual first date, they met in Soulard at the Blues CityDeli for lunch. Because they had known one another for years, the transition from friend to significant other was actually quite seamless. It was just easy, no other way to describe it.
