Love Talks: Newlyweds

Jorge and David met 3 and a half years ago playing volleyball but they both have different versions of the initial encounter. David recalls helping new members [to the league] get oriented one night when Gill Smith came over and said, “That’s Jorge over there. Go introduce yourself.” He did just that but despite David’s attempts to assist new member Jorge he wasn’t very receptive leaving David to think, “Oh my goodness, he’s such a jerk! He won’t even make eye contact with me!” Jorge however does not remember meeting David that night at all.  A couple of weeks later during a volleyball match against each other in which David was reffing the first game he spotted Jorge walking by and said, “Jorge, you’re on this court!” to which he replied, “How do you know my name?” According to Jorge, they first met that night. As their teams played each other Jorge flirted with David across the court all while scoring points against them with his serves. Per David, his team put a stop to that [points] right away!
