They Met During the Pandemic, but Still Managed to Make It Work

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

Neither the coronavirus nor distance could keep Megan and Simon apart.

In the second month of the pandemic, Megan started following Simon on Instagram. “I got this DM from Megan after our mutual friend suggested she follow me,” says 33-year-old Simon, a tech entrepreneur. “We started messaging back and forth and I asked if she lived in L.A.” He quickly discovered she was based in Chicago, but that didn’t stop them from chatting over FaceTime for the next month.

“When everything started to open up, we decided to meet up in person,” says Megan, a 28-year-old model.  “Now, we’re kind of inseparable.”  They spend their weekends going to the farmers market, barbecuing, and figuring out how to safely see one another again.

“It has been a pretty cute story,” admits Simon.  “Let’s see what the future holds.”
