Ryan and Chandler met on Hinge the Fall of 2021. After talking on the phone a few times before actually meeting in person, their first date was on a Friday night at Bowen House in Dallas, a victorian-style cocktail bar in a vintage house. After quickly connecting, Ryan and Chandler had a series of dinner dates, a trip to the Dallas State Fair and concerts to get to know one another. While the relationship was made official November 2nd, what truly solidified things, was when Chandler caught a strain of strep so bad, it required hospital attention, and Ryan was there for her first surgery and calmed the nerves of her parents in Denver. Mind you, this was three days after Ryan asked Chandler to be his girlfriend. After that experience, the relationship was a sure sign of one to last a lifetime!
