Chris and Jasmine were set-up by a mutual friend that has known them separately for years. Jasmine heard rumblings from friends that a guy from Wisconsin saw her pictures and said she was, "cute". Friends encouraged her to take the 400 mile trip to Wisconsin to go on a date with this mystery man. After much consideration, Jasmine agreed to take the trip to Wisconsin during her birthday weekend. Unfortunately, the trip was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. However, this did not stop Chris from getting to know the young woman he heard so much about. After becoming friends on Facebook, and a message from her, Chris and Jasmine began talking through the Messenger App and building a friendship.
After talking for three months Chris and Jasmine were finally able to reschedule that date. Chris and Jasmine first met in-person standing in their friend's kitchen. They went out on a date with a group of mutual friends to The Long Table. Even though they both hated the food there, the company was fantastic. After, they went to their Church Building for a Sequence competition. Chris showed Jasmine around the church building and found themselves on the church stage, laughing and talking. There they knew something special was happening.
