Success Story: Anna + Rachel
Anna and Rachel matched a little over a year ago on Bumble, here is their story as told by both lovely women!
What was the first move?
Anna sent a message to Rachel saying, "Hey, how are you?" After that, the conversation moved into Young Adult novels and tv series discussions. Following less than 12 hours of conversation, Anna slid Rachel her phone number in a smooth move consisting of "My data connection is janky at work so feel free to text me instead." Rachel made her sweat it out a couple of hours, but decided that Anna didn't seem like too much of a creeper, so she sent her a text. It took a few days of chatting, but they went on their first date to Insight Brewery, which was a success! Anna nervously talked non-stop the whole time, while Rachel couldn't stop laughing and smiling. The date flew by, they hugged and said their goodbyes and as they say, the rest is history.
What stood out about their profile?
Anna: The first thing that stood out to me about Rachel's profile was her smile. After browsing through her other pictures, it was clear that her smile had me hooked. Her listed occupation was "Scientist" and that immediately sparked curiosity. Her "About Me" section listed hockey as her life, which was a bit intimidating at first (I'm a basketball player) but later became quite a loveable quality.
Rachel: The first thing that stood out to me about Anna's profile, other than the fact that she was cute, was that she had on a University of Minnesota sweatshirt. Which meant, even if she didn't go to the U, I knew she could at least tolerate the Gophers :) Other than that, I was pretty stoked that she had puzzles listed as an interest, because prior to being in a relationship, that's what I spent a lot of my free time on.
Where are you now?
Rachel and Anna are moving in together in April! They see each other pretty much every day anyways, so why not get rid of some of that travel time? Rachel already owns the house, which is a bit of a fixer upper, so they're looking forward to working on more house improvement projects with the help of Rachel's dad. Stay tuned, there might be wedding bells in the future :)
