Peter and Tessa met through mutual friends right after college (her old sorority sister and his fraternity brother were dating– now also married!) at my friend's birthday party. They had secret crushes on each other, but she had a boyfriend at the time and he had just gotten out of a serious relationship. They ran into each other a few other times over the years while hanging out with those same friends, but he wasn't really on her radar since she was still in another relationship. Then almost two years ago (and about 4 since they initially met) I saw him one morning at a local coffee shop near my house and yelled his name. He was running in to get one to-go, and she had posted up at the shop daily since she was having her kitchen redone at home (he asked for her number after a ten minute conversation where she was wearing gym clothes and no makeup, so she knew he might actually like her…) They went on their first date about a week after that, and have been inseparable ever since!
