Couples Answer How They Got Together

It’s the one surefire anecdote a couple has mastered, the art of telling the fateful moment they met and have been inseparable ever since. Everyone enjoys a good story, so an Instagram account called TheWayWeMet has been set up specially to collect these moments and tell their stories. Check out a few of them below.

At that moment, I knew immediately that I was in love and we were destined to be together. It was most definitely the stuff of schmaltzy love songs and sappy movies.

“I was already a working actress and Alex was in his final semester at college studying film. The producer of Alex’s thesis film had graduated from my acting school and contacted the school asking if there were any actresses they would recommend for the lead. They contacted me, but being the hot shot prick that I was, I was convinced I was too big time for “student films.” I contacted my agent to ask his advice and he said “Sure! You never know where these things can lead.” So Lo and behold, I was cast. During the costume fitting, Alex walked up close to my face to see if I needed false eyelashes for the film. At that moment, I knew immediately that I was in love and we were destined to be together. It was most definitely the stuff of schmaltzy love songs and sappy movies. There were fireworks and I suddenly felt really self-conscious about the outfit I had on. The best part, however, is that while shooting, we discovered that we were born at the same exact time. Same day, same month, same year, and we’re pretty sure same time (8:30a in TX for him and 9:36a in VA for me, with the one hour time difference). His mother has yet to confirm the exact time, so after 8 years together, we still don’t know who’s technically older.”
