Tinder – not exactly the place you expect to meet the love of your life, but Tinder proved to be exactly what Alex and Ashley needed in order for fate to happen. It’s what they consider their fairy tale with a modern twist! Alex claims that Ashley was the only girl he spoke to on Tinder and deleted the app after 5 hours of finally getting her name and phone number. Ashley finds this story hard to believe, but she is nevertheless grateful for modern dating because it brought Alex into her life. She recalls Alex ending their last Tinder conversation with “Casino theory….you’re up? Walk away. I’ve won the Tinder game.” After speaking on the phone for a couple weeks, Ashley and Alex met for the first time at a local restaurant near Alex’s hometown in Essex, CT. Alex jokingly describes Essex as the “prime spot for retirement” because many people settle there for its serene lifestyle. After spending 3 years in Baltimore for law school, Essex was the last place he ever imagined meeting the girl of his dreams! Upon meeting Ashley, he was surprised to see that his Tinder match was not only attractive and intelligent, but also younger than 60 (and didn’t lie about her age)! Ashley’s love for quiet towns near the beach, on the other hand, was what drew her to the Connecticut shoreline to begin with. After graduating from Physician Assistant school in busy Metropolitan New York City, she was looking for a peace of mind and a fresh start to her new career. These two have since moved several time, settled into their groove outside of Boston, and continue to make others fall more in love with who they are together through their laughter, adventure, friendship, and Sunday afternoon football parties and appetizers (that Alex proudly makes himself).
