This L.A. Couple Is Proof that Love at First Sight Is Real

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. 

On their very first date, Jill and Marc felt like they were the only ones in the restaurant.

That was definitely not the case. In fact, they were at trendy eatery Avra in Beverly Hills, which is anything but low key. Oh, and Jill had a few of her girlfriends at the table—and they were giving Marc the third degree.

“They all questioned me as good girlfriends would do,” says the 46-year-old mortgage lender. “I fell for her right away. I know it sounds cliche, but it was like everything was in slow motion.”

Jill was also smitten. “We’d both been out there dating a long time,” explains the 43-year-old, who owns of the mobile spray tan company Pureorganictan. ”We got engaged last July and we’re getting married in July.”

Despite what everyone says, Marc says people can actually meet their “soul mates” in Los Angeles: “I know I did.”
