Entrepreneurs Rachel and Neil find love in the big city.
We’ve been together…
Rachel: We’ve known each other 14 years, been together for nine and been married for four-and-a-half — we’ve seen each other through a lot of fashion missteps!
Neil: Not long enough.
Rachel: Any moment when we can take a walk alone without our iPhones is cherished and worthy of date status.
Neil: We met for brunch at French Roast on 6th Avenue to recuperate after a late night. Brunch quickly turned into a full day date. It was a beautiful spring day, so we strolled through SoHo, continued downtown, and randomly jumped into a water taxi together.
The first time I saw him/her, I thought…
Rachel: “Who is this guy?” He was in a tight t-shirt and dark jeans — I grew up in a beach town on Cape Cod and only knew guys that wore cargo pants and Abercrombie jeans.
Neil: “Who’s this cute girl wearing a ski hat with a pom-pom?”
What we like to do together…
Rachel: Travel, ski, yoga and Soul Cycle, play with our son Griffin, Omakase dates, and watch episodes of Homeland and The Good Wife.
Neil: Ski, watch Real Housewives of New Jersey (don’t tell anybody) and go to Cape Cod.
What we don’t like to do together…
Rachel: Cook. We specialize in eating out and delivery.
Neil: Clothing shop for her. I’m not actually sure whether she also dislikes this. I think I would rather remain ignorant….
