Ryan, Dancer & Actor: I’d seen pictures and found him so darn cute—he looks like a Disney prince—that I was crushing from afar. We were at a mutual friend’s birthday party and I walked in and I saw him from the other side of the bar. I gave him an awkward smile and a wave and continued ordering my drink. And then I realized I was being stupid and needed to go over.
Matt, Actor & Musician: I nearly dropped my drink when Ryan started walking toward me. It sounds ridiculous, but it was one of those situations where it was love at first sight, or, at least, first meet. From the moment he came over, I had this “Oh, this is it” spark of knowing he was someone I had to get to know and have a relationship with. I went home and sent my mother an email saying, “I’ve definitely met someone really, really special.”
