Our Love Story
Jean and Bryan happened to meet through a mutual friend on her birthday weekend at a club in DC called, we kid you not, Love. They introduced themselves and had fun, but didn’t really connect until Jean happened to transfer to Bryan’s college a semester later where they became good friends.
Jean would invite friends over and feed her guests whatever experimental creations she would cook up in her kitchen. Usually, some kind of “gourmet” egg sandwich: over easy egg, avocado, heirloom tomatoes, arugula, toasted bagel, or some variation of that! Guess food really is the way to a man’s heart because they ended up dating for 5 months. They broke up, but reconnected 7 years later.
Funny fact, Jean was trying to ask for Bryan’s advice on some other guy she was trying to date back then. Jean asked, “Is it a turn-off if the girl just asks the guy out first?” and Bryan replied, “If he’s a real man, no. Second, if it’s coming from you, it’s not an insult.” Smooth move! Basically, the rest is history.
