How They First Crossed Paths
J came to the US for an international student program in 2018 and quickly found herself in a mentor role. Fast forward to 2019, she organized an event and bumped into A, her future better half. They went to hang out with a mutual friend, and the sparks flew. J thought A was cultured, kind, and, let’s be honest, pretty easy on the eyes. A little chat, a ride home, and bam, they exchanged numbers. A week later, their first date happened, and as they say, the rest is history.
Falling in Love: The Little Things That Mattered
What made them fall in love, you ask? Well, for J, it was A’s caring nature, and not just in the grand gestures but in the everyday stuff like grocery shopping. It’s safe to say she fell for him from day one. As for A, it was J’s infectious love for the world and her way of showing it that had him hooked. Their connection was cemented when they talked about their life stories, and that million-dollar smile of J’s.
The One Thing They Love the Most About Each Other
When asked to pick one thing they love the most about each other, J thinks A is incredibly unique, and loves his unwavering confidence and self-assuredness. As for A, it’s J’s ability to express love and care for others that tugs at his heartstrings. Her genuine empathy and energy make her his favorite person to talk to every day.
A Day in Their Lives: Food, Fun, and Culture
So, what’s a perfect day for these two lovebirds? It’s all about exploring new cultures through food. With no budget constraints and all the time in the world, they’d jet off to a different continent, meet the locals, and dive headfirst into their culture. But if they can’t escape Chicago, they explore the city’s culturally-rich neighborhoods, savor the local grub, and visit museums and important sites. Oh, and they love the beach too!
Favorite Places to Go and Things to Do
Their Chicago favorites include Chinatown, Devon, Argyle, Little Village, and North Avenue Beach for some good old relaxation and lake-side fun. They’re big fans of playing board games, trying new cuisines, riding scooters and bikes around town, and enjoying outdoor activities like walks and hikes.
From Chicago to the World: Their Shared Passion for Dancing
Now, here’s the juicy stuff – J and A share a love for dancing! J has a solid background in ballet, Spanish folklore, and flamenco, while A spent four years dancing West Coast Swing. Although they’ve taken a break from it, they plan to get back into the groove with a new dance style, perhaps bachata.
Family and Friends’ Seal of Approval
Their family and friends say they’re a caring couple who respect each other’s backgrounds, cultures, and religions. In a world full of differences, J and A’s relationship is a shining example of love, curiosity, and respect.
