Jared and Cecile’s Love Story

Cecile and Jared’s love journey began in the most romantic way possible. These love birds met on a daring append after messaging for a few days Cecile knew that there was something different. “Even before meeting him I kept thinking about how genuine he was as he definitely lived up to that definition.”

Cecile and Jared’s first date was two years ago In Pittsburgh where they spent most of the day hanging out and having a meaningful conversation. They ate delicious tacos and went to a pinball cafe. They ended the night at Dave and Busters where Cecile swears she won every game that night. After such a fun-filled date with great conversation and amazing food, they both knew that they wanted to be in each other’s lives.

What They Love Most About Each Other

Jared was attracted to Cecile’s willingness and ability to take care of everyone she loves. Her determination to foster meaningful relationships with her family and friends. The way that she goes out of her way to make him feel special makes him even more grateful.
