Who says dating apps can’t inspire romance? We think that Sherri and Jon are the perfect anecdote to prove otherwise.
It’s not a surprise that Sherri and Jon ended up together via Coffee Meets Bagel. They’re an attractive, and successful couple who have a buoyant grins in the many photos of their travels. “I liked Jon’s profile because he looked handsome and had a graduate degree.” Sherri says.
“I liked Sherri because she was cute, [and] had a good job,” Jon similarly chimes in. Their mutual attractiveness and smarts lead to their first date on December 14th, 2013 at the Pump Room in Chicago. The bonus? She picked up that Jon was a great cook and an even better friend.
“Jon…brought smoked pork belly and mulled wine (for [his friend’s holiday] party).” Sherri explains. She later discovered his prowess in the kitchen and in cocktail creations. To the outsider, it sounds as if they both naturally fell into each other. On January 5th, 2013 during a blizzard, they called it official. “Despite the weather, we had an amazing day in the city,” Sherri says.
To Coffee Meets Bagel users, they have uncannily similar advice. “Use Coffee Meets Bagel!” Jon’s advice to users goes, “think about the specific characteristics of a significant other that are most important to you.” As for Sherri?
“Take the time to put key things about yourself in your profile. Be honest with yourself about what matters to you,” she says. And most importantly, “stay positive.” In the midst of winter, perhaps it was also her positivity that helped Jon and Sherri’s relationship to blossom.
