How did you meet?

Michael: “Our moms had met each other at church. They knew that they wanted us to meet each other.  They felt that we would be a great match for the other one. After a few months of our parents not making the opportunity for us to meet yet, I came to the conclusion that Lauren did not exist. Lauren reached out to me via email to prove that she did exist.  After a few weeks of communicating, I asked Lauren out to dinner for us to meet for the first time.”
