Playing Hard to Get Led to Lasting Love for This Couple

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.

Sometimes you gotta make a guy work for your affections. That was the case with Susana and Ron, who met in law school. He was pursuing her but had to back off since she had a boyfriend at the time. ⁠

A while later, Ron discovered Susana and her boyfriend had broken up, and he immediately asked for her number. “She gave me a fake phone number,” the 31-year-old attorney admits with a laugh. ⁠

But it seems the fake number didn’t mean she wasn’t interested. “I just wanted to keep things interesting,” Susana deadpans. A few weeks later, they ran into one another in a bar, and this time the music lawyer decided to give up her real number. ⁠

All the early drama didn’t keep them from forming a lasting relationship. They’ve been together ever since, and tied the knot two years ago.⁠
