It’s practically unheard of these days for a couple to meet without the help of a dating app. Nicole and Matt were introduced the old-fashioned way. “When I started at my company’s New York office, they sat me next to him,” Nicole says. “We would get coffee. Overtime, we began flirting a little, but nothing really happened.” Well, nothing really happened immediately.
