  • It was definitely different dating remotely.

  • I just knew this was the one.

  • If I could hold on to this

  • like I'm out here winning.

  • We're just going to have to make the most of it.

  • I believe that love is definitely blind.

  • If I had a chance to do it all over

  • I would do it this exact same way.

  • I feel so lucky that I found my person

  • in the craziness of my quarantine pod.

  • Laura and I met initially on a dating app.

  • I met Norman through a mutual friend.

  • I met Blake on Instagram, April 17th

  • when I decided to shoot my shot at him.

  • I met AJ on a dating app.

  • I swiped right on her.

  • She swiped right on me

  • and then we ended up messaging each other at the same time.

  • And I gave her my number

  • way faster than I usually give anyone my number.

  • She's real.

  • This is real.

  • I didn't mess up.

  • I didn't get duped.

  • I was kind of indifferent over relationships

  • cause I had just got out of a long relationship.

  • So I wasn't necessarily looking for anything.

  • I am a little resistant to the quote unquote hookup.

  • The end of April

  • I think it was the first time he DM'd me through Instagram.

  • One of the biggest things I picked up

  • from watching 'Love Is Blind' was communication.

  • I'm definitely on the same page.

  • You know, I feel much more closer to you right now

  • than I have.

  • There's definitely a lot of parallels

  • between starting to date during quarantine and the show.

  • Getting to know each other by talking first,

  • before getting within that six feet.

  • So on that first date we had on FaceTime.

  • I wasn't really looking to dating

  • so I didn't care what I really looked like on the phone,

  • he was going to take me as I was.

  • I knew she was having wine

  • so I poured me up some,

  • I think it was whiskey and coke

  • and it was like we were sitting down at dinner.

  • It was seemingly more difficult during quarantine

  • because you can't just go out to a bar or a restaurant.

  • He played the piano for me through the phone.

  • He's into music and he's a musician.

  • Our conversations got really deep, really fast.

  • We spent so many days just talking.

  • I have a lot of medical complexities if you will.

  • I mean, to be honest, I was insecure about it

  • and I'm like who's going to want to sign on

  • for all of this stuff.

  • So having that physical barrier

  • gave me a chance to really get to a place with AJ

  • intellectually, emotionally,

  • where we were able to have these

  • just really candid conversations.

  • And we talked for like three hours our first conversation.

  • And we knew immediately

  • that there was a significant connection.

  • We started sending each stuff in the mail.

  • She sent me her favorite Prince shirt

  • that had her aroma on it.

  • Yeah, I did that.

  • Obviously having to stay six feet apart from someone

  • is kind of weird,

  • but obviously just like the show,

  • you know, there has to be physical contact.

  • I think the first two or three weeks we were dating

  • you know, we were keeping a six foot bubble.

  • When I saw Ronni for the first time

  • I was like, Whoa,

  • no I'm just playing.

  • She's 5'10" so it's like, wow.

  • That's gonna be something to climb.

  • It's gonna be great.

  • Our first time meeting in person

  • I had to drive up to Cincinnati to pick her up.

  • And I just was not expecting this man to say

  • he was gonna drive five hours from Chicago

  • to Cincinnati to pick me up

  • and then another five to take me back.

  • And I remember I think I made her smile a little too hard.

  • Cause I said something and like she laughed so hard

  • that she kinda likes snotted a little bit

  • and she was like,

  • "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh I gotta go to the bathroom".

  • First date wasn't even like the typical date,

  • we just went out like we were together for a while

  • and it was just like,

  • it was that instant connection?

  • So honestly, even after two weeks

  • was the first time we hugged.

  • I still didn't know if we were just friends.

  • When she and I first saw each other in person,

  • I just knew this was the one.

  • Our first kiss is when we came back from a date.

  • We got our first Airbnb in Amish country so, you know,

  • being queer it's like,

  • you don't know whether they're looking out the window like,

  • them two girls hugging and kissing on each other.

  • But we did take it up to the room and.

  • [Laughing]

  • Thinking back on me and Blake's first kiss,

  • I remember finally getting back to Chicago,

  • seeing his beautiful apartment.

  • He came inside, we sat down and we just talked.

  • And then during the conversation

  • I saw him trying to get a little bit closer.

  • I thought he was kind of like reaching for a kiss

  • but I kind of was at the same time.

  • We kissed and then when we kissed he was like,

  • I guess he was like, this is it.

  • And he's like, I just this feeling.

  • And I was like, are you crying?

  • It's probably the one fight we have.

  • I say that I kissed him first,

  • but he says that he kissed me first.

  • And I just remember kissing him

  • and after that,

  • I actually remember we made a little,

  • it wasn't a Tik Tok, it was some other app we did.

  • And he was like kissing me all on my cheek

  • and I have that video and I just love it

  • 'cause he was just like,

  • I feel like it just felt so real.

  • I was already pretty much

  • hitting the love zone by then

  • and I have never, ever thought that about anyone.

  • When I had that first kiss,

  • it was just like just sealed the deal.

  • We just celebrated seven months together now.

  • So seeing her in person

  • I don't even think I've said this to her before.

  • The first time I saw her in person

  • and had my arms around her,

  • I thought to myself,

  • this is gonna be my wife.

  • So I surprised her on her birthday

  • and asked her to marry me.

  • We really were meant to be

  • because we didn't even pick Valentine's Day

  • as our wedding day.

  • There was a cancellation last minute

  • and so we got that date.

  • You know, we've already started discussing, you know

  • me moving in at some point maybe this summer.

  • I will say five years from now

  • we'll probably be married with kids.

  • You find your soulmate,

  • every dayliterally going to Target

  • feels like a date with him.

  • So five years I hope to be his wife

  • and I hope that we have a few little ones.

  • Happy Valentine's Day, baby.

  • Happy Valentine's Day.

  • I love you.

  • [AJ & Ronni] Happy Valentine's Day.

  • That was awful.

  • That was way off.

It was definitely different dating remotely.
