This L.A. Couple Is Proof Blind Dates Can Actually Work

Each week we ask a local couple, ”How did you meet?”

In our series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up.

Courtney and Jack met just over a year ago on a blind date. Jack was at a wedding on the East Coast and a friend asked if he was single before following up with one more question: “He asked if I like crazy?” the 36-year-old recalls with a smile. “I replied, ‘The good kind of crazy or the bad kind of crazy?'”

A few weeks later, he met Courtney for dinner. “We hit it off immediately,” she says. “By the way,” she adds, “I’m not crazy.” But she did fall hard for Jack.

For the first time in her 37 years, Courtney took a guy home to meet the family for Thanksgiving. “Everyone loved him,” the therapist who works with children cheerfully reports. The feeling was mutual. “I loved being with her family this year,” Jack, a branding expert, says. “This is it! Shut it down!”
