Tony’s opening questions on OKCupid was “Did you go to Hopkins?” (As in Johns) Rebecca said it was the least creepiest, most interesting opening line she had ever heard and was curious about this guy. Turns out she has pretty good instincts.
Their story started while she was finishing up medical school. Their work schedules were off, and, like most people starting their residency, Rebecca did not have much free time. But she did have to eat. Tony seized the opportunity and brought her pizza. He basically became her private delivery boy; any excuse to see her.
Apparently, Rebecca and my wife Danielle have the same Love Language-Fun Food.
About half way through our session, Rebecca noticed this sign in the gardens and demanded a photo with it.
“Even tiny balls and little feet can crush our babies.” Uh… yes please.
Rebecca said that her favorite thing about Tony is how when they fight, it feels like they figure something out on the other side of it. I think that may be my favorite answer ever.

I always love when one person is ready to kiss the other and the other person is like… not quite right now.
So even though Rebecca is the bubbly outgoing one in the relationship, it was super obvious how much Tony values and respects her. He was so tender and kind to her the whole session. I loved how he listened to her and how his steady personality is the perfect balance to her go-go fun-fun one.
