In series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up.
Adam and Sarah lived in different cities—he in Los Angeles, she in New York—but a mutual friend was determined to set them up all the same. They kicked things off with a phone call, and then started talking and texting daily. Three weeks later, Adam was going to the East Coast for work so they connected for an in-person meeting.
“Our first date was on a cold February night in Brooklyn, and she was 20 minutes late for the date, but it was worth the wait,” explains 34-year-old Adam, who runs Two West Entertainment, a Hollywood talent management company.

After long-distance dating for a while, Sarah ended up moving to Los Angeles and the two got engaged during a hike in Fryman Canyon.
“Adam took out his phone to reveal that our parents, grandparents, and siblings were on Zoom right after he asked me to marry him,” recalls Sarah, a 31-year-old writer. “We are planning to get married in October in Ojai.”
