Michael and Liz actually met in July of 2004 on a dating website known as Match.com. Both were tired of meeting people at bars and clubs and so they tried something different. After many hour long phone conversations, the two decided to meet for a date on Liz's birthday, July 9th. It was love at first sight. They went to a quiet little Italian restaurant in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn (which happens to be a few blocks from where they now live) and went to see Spiderman 2 at the Alpine Theater. Their first kiss was on a bench under the stars on 70th Street and 5th Avenue as they waited for the movie to start. And it was the beginning of a beautiful and loving relationship.
