The Little Couple: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jen Arnold And Bill Klein’s Relationship
8. Getting Together
After their initial and very brief meeting as children, the two actually had many times where their lives crossed paths or almost did, making their story seem even more like fate. “Our doctor and nurse practitioner actually tried to set us up a few times, believe it or not. Both Bill and I were interested in going into medicine and we both shadowed our surgeon, but I never got to meet him because we did it at different times. They also told Bill about me, and we still never connected,” Jen explained. Ten years later on Jen’s 32nd birthday the pair officially met after meeting via datealittle.com, but even that was hard work. Bill said that he wrote her when he found her on the site, but Jen hadn’t paid for her registration so she couldn’t read his message. Two months later Jen finally paid for using the site and wrote him back and, after a pick up line thrown out by Jen, the two began talking on the phone. “After about a month and a half of calls, she fell asleep on the phone one night — at that point I decided she was too comfortable or too bored. Either way, I needed to close the deal here because I was in love with her at that point,” Bill sweetly stated.
7. First Date
For their first date, Bill hopped on a plane and flew to Pittsburgh to meet Jen cause she was living there at the time and they had their first date at Starbucks where they talked so long and had such a connection they decided to continue the date and go for dinner. After deciding on sushi, the pair got so deep into conversation they didn’t even touch their food and the chef even had to ask if something was wrong with their meal, but the pair had just forgotten to eat because they were having such a good time talking to one another. After their dinner date, they had a romantic first kiss. “When we left, we went up to the top of Emerald View in Pittsburgh; you can overlook the city there. I had my first kiss with Jennifer on top of that mountain, and that was that.”
