How We Met

The Last Swipe

09.26.2019 Natalie and Rich were both swiping on dating apps until they stumbled upon each other. After only chatting for 48 hours on the app, Rich asked Natalie out for drinks after work. At the time, they were both working in downtown Detroit, and decided to meet at Lumen. They sat on the patio and enjoyed getting to know each other while overlooking the park. Drinks turned into dinner across the street at Republic, which then turned into an self-guided impromptu tour of The Leland Hotel. Since Natalie is fascinated with Detroit's architecture, she asked Rich to go inside with her and explore the buildings beauty. She mainly wanted to see if he was a rule follower, or rule breaker. Luckily, he said yes and they were able to explore two ballrooms before the staff escorted them out. He walked her to her car, and the rest is history.
