How We Met
Just days after Mary Kate moved to Houston and Kyle came back from a guys’ trip to Germany, they met up with friends for drinks. Mary Kate thought it would just be her friend, Jen and Jen’s boyfriend (now husband), Spencer. Kyle, still recovering from Oktoberfest, wasn’t in much of a mood for drinking, but had heard “Jen’s single friend” might be there, so he decided to join along with his friend, Jacob.
The next day, Kyle told Jen that he wanted to ask Mary Kate out on a date. After determining that a Facebook message was too risky, he decided it would be better to text her. Jen was planning on talking to Mary Kate beforehand, but before she could give her a heads up, Kyle eagerly texted Mary Kate first thing in the morning, asking her to go to the Houston Texans game with him later that week. This happened to be the morning of Mary Kate’s first day at the EY office, full of meetings and other distractions. Kyle waited a very long 5 or 6 hours to get a response back. Although terrified that her lack of sports knowledge would not fare well on this date, she happily accepted.
The Texans game ended up being just the first of many dates for these two. It wasn’t long before they both realized they couldn’t possibly imagine a life without each other.
