Chef dating best friend dating ex girlfriend quotes
Eva: We danced to “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” It was really, really fun. But I’d been single for a while, so this wasn’t anything different to me necessarily…Bobby: Nothing special. Getting a house, having kids, getting married, etc. Haley: What is your favorite part about each other? She tries to take care of everything and, when she needs to, she nudges me and helps me get things done.
You were a good dancer, which was also fun, and then we made out on the dance floor.
I no longer feel the need to dress up and put on my red lipstick because we’re just staying home and my stylish boots have been swapped for slippers.
Of course, with every negative, there’s a positive.

Eva: I was working on the marketing part of the event. Bobby: I had just gotten out of one and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Eva: We had a huge fight and I said, “I can’t do this anymore.” It was becoming, for me, very redundant. Like at a job, if you never get promoted, why are you doing it? There should be a decision made.” And I didn’t want to make the wrong one. Bobby: (to Haley) Can you put that in there please? Eva: That’s true, you do hang out with my friends a lot. Bobby: Seeing how warm she is, how she wants to take care of things that matter to me, and wants to make everything better, it means a lot. Bobby Hellen, executive chef/co-owner of GG’s: It was on Governor’s Island. He was one of the chefs, another person there that I was coordinating with. Bobby: Well, I asked you for your number…Eva: Oh yeah, he asked me for my number! This was before we got together – many years before. We both work in the food industry, so we crossed paths a few times after that too. Absolutely not.”Bobby: She’s scared of the chef stigma. Bobby: We lost contact for a while and then I had just gotten back to New York after being away for a few months and I ended up going to an event…Eva: And I was there with my best friend Alex. You were like, “We should go have a drink and catch up.” I was in work mode so I gave you my business card. I said, “This is so weird.” But they were like, “That’s actually really nice.”Bobby: It was a good space, I knew everybody there and we had drinks outside first. Eva: It’s funny, because I remember you thought you were going to be five minutes late to show up for coffee or something and you emailed me to let me know and I was thinking, “This would be so much easier if we were texting!!!! We would touch on it but never outright talk about it. But after a while I was like, “Umm, what’s going on here? If you’re not making any more money, what’s the point? Eva: When I finally understood why he was hesitating, it was less of the cliché than I thought. Haley: You said something about him seeming different than anyone you’ve ever dated – what felt different for both of you in this relationship? I feel like you could’ve been born in the 1920s and could be 80 years old living on the Upper West Side with your bagel and jazz music and newspaper and you’d be perfectly happy. I remember being like, “Oh god, he doesn’t need my number right now. He was just a contact of mine, we didn’t work super close. I remember my coworker saying, “He’s cute, you should date him! I remember her pointing him out — she’s a great wing woman — and saying, “Oh, that guy’s cute.” I was like, “Oh yeah, whatever.” I never wanted to date in the industry, plus I didn’t recognize him instantly because I hadn’t seen him in like a year. I had another event coming up, so I emailed him to invite him. That’s the good thing about being in the restaurant business. ”Haley: I think there’s something kind of nice about emails. Eva: (Looking up emails on phone) Oh my gosh, I have them all! ” “Okay perfect what time.” “I’ll be a few minutes late.” “Actually, I’ll be on time.” This is going to be in the flipbook if we ever get married. Haley: So, after your first date…Eva: We had some really awesome first dates. All of our dates went well because we both like to try things: new restaurants, foods…Eva: Totally. ” At a certain point, you either go for it or you don’t. So after around a year I was like…Bobby: “What the fuck is going on.”Eva: That was when it came to a head. Haley: Up to that point were you acting like a couple or acting casual? He was more concerned with making sure it was right before he committed. Bobby: I was in a suit, so I was definitely out of the element of working in a kitchen. Then he came with a guy friend of his, so I was like, “Hmm…” I wasn’t sure of his intentions. Anyway, so the dancing was on a Monday night, and then we went on a day date the next Sunday. I remember you thought it was weird I asked you on a date during the day. We sat outside, had the table right by the window (not by accident). When you’re first meeting somebody, it can be awkward. We still do this, but in those first six months we would go out to so many different places. I was cool with it for the first nine months and then there were like three months where I was thinking, “I can either take it or leave it at this point.” Because you weren’t doing anything. He wasn’t just going to get into a relationship because he was a certain age or someone was in front of him and he thought it was the right next step. Haley: You waited until you were sure before committing? After that we became serious and things moved pretty quickly.
