An interview with the happy couple!
How did you meet? I’d love to hear the details!
We met at work. I was an Operations Manager, he was an Area Manager. We didn’t hit it off at first, lol. I would crash his store manager meetings or add to his meetings because we shared the same team and he hated it lol and I didn’t care; I kept doing it to piss him off, haha. Eventually, we grew on each other, by force, because we had to and realized that we were cool. We needed to work with each other in order to succeed, which I repeatedly advised him so he finally listened. Then we actually became friends. I ended up kissing him first; he was very charming and the rest is history. He chased me lol.
What was your first date? I’d love to hear the details!
