It sparked a conversation, though. The passionate food connoisseurs kept crossing paths until one day, Matt says, they just hung out. The friendship quickly turned romantic, he says.
They discovered they’re both driven by self-improvement, whether it’s learning to make the perfect rice, perfecting pie crust skills or learning how to better apologize. They also share an appetite for exploring the world.
“I think we just realized we have the same curiosity for most things in life,” MyThy says.
Says Matt: “We hold each other accountable, we challenge each other in that way and we really have grown together, we’ve come a long way, as individuals first and that has helped our relationship.”
Just before COVID hit, they were surprised to discover MyThy was pregnant. Now they can’t imagine life without him. “We’re those parents, after he goes to sleep, we look at our phones and we just stare at pictures of him,” she says.
