How we met

6.13.2014

RJ was a stunningly handsome waiter at Lombardi's on the sound in Port Jefferson. One night in June 2014, Priscilla was her mom's date to a work function in which RJ was working. Priscilla saw RJ from a distance serving eggplant tartar in a black tux and simply couldn’t help but blush. With a little help from Priscilla's mom's secretaries and persistence from her mother, word made it to RJ that Priscilla thought he was devilishly handsome. While RJ got in trouble for attempting to walk over to the table that Priscilla was sitting at, Priscilla took matters into her own hands and wrote her number on a napkin in eyeliner and prayed he wasn't a serial killer. RJ didn’t waste time in expressing his mutual interest in Priscilla and texted her later that night after he got off his shift. A few weeks later, they had their first date at Danfords. Between the great conversation and RJ pretending to be a wine connoisseur in order to get a bottle of wine to keep his buzz going at dinner, RJ swept Priscilla off her feet. Just a few months after their first date, they started dating while Priscilla was at Stony Brook and RJ was at Hofstra and the rest is history.
