Chrissy Metz, the 42-year-old actress, recently revealed that it took her a month to get her now-boyfriend Bradley Collins’ phone number. The two met on the popular dating app Bumble in 2020, and due to Metz putting very little information about herself on the app, Collins thought he was being lured in by a false persona. Metz had to “beg” her potential suitor for his number before they could start dating.
Metz and Collins decided to go on their first date during the peak of COVID-19 and its associated social distancing guidelines. After it started raining outside, the two spent their first meeting shouting to each other from opposite ends of Collins’ living room.
Metz describes their first date as “so romantic,” but it seems Collins was a true gentleman, unlocking the door for her to enter and allowing her to socially distance within his own house.
For those looking for love in this modern era, this story is a testament to never giving up and trusting your instincts, despite any difficulties you may face before you reach your happily ever after.
