How They Met
Erin and Jonathan met with help from a furry friend. Erin had just moved back to LA from San Francisco and was puppy sitting for her friend Allison. Another friend Rebecca, suggested she and the pup join their group at the dog park for a fun afternoon. She arrived at the dog park, the first of her friends of course (#LATraffic) and was getting out and this adorable pup runs over to her. Enter Jonathan and his pup Theo. Jonathan comes over to get Theo and soon they start chatting. Her friends arrive just awhile later and she invites Jonathan and his pups to join their group.
“I’m a pretty social guy, not super outgoing but I was like ‘Yeah why not I’ll go be the creepy guy with her friends.’ I remember sitting there being the odd man out with her friends but she kept coming over and sitting next to me making me feel welcome.”
Erin liked Jonathan and enjoyed getting to know him, but wasn’t looking to date anyone as she just moved back to LA and was getting settled in. She was looking at getting a puppy and Jonathan said that Theo had a brother that he could help her with getting. She gave him her business card and that was the start of something.
They went out on dates and while there was a chemistry and attraction between the two of them Erin still wasn’t sure if she wanted to be in a relationship and date.
“I took her out to dinner one night at one of my favorite restaurants in Echo Park. We were int he car and I went to kiss her and she wouldn’t kiss me. I was like ‘What’s that about?’ and she said ‘You’re cute but I wanna hook you up with one of my friends.’ I was like ‘What do you mean one of your friends?’. She told me ‘Yeah you’re too young for me.’ I looked at her and that was it, I was determined.”
And the rest is history.
Of course here are some fun candids of them getting down with their dance moves!
