Regina Myers and Joshua Kulick
Dr. Regina Maree Myers and Joshua Alexander Kulick met through a dating app Sept. 24, 2016 — shortly after each had moved to Philadelphia from New York — and went on a first date to a bar later that evening. He said he knew the first date would be different when she crossed the street and walked toward him.
“I remember the voice in my head telling me that I needed to do everything in my power to ensure that this first date led to a second,” he said.
Long before the bar and their conversation had shut down for the evening, Mr. Kulick had indeed secured his second date with Ms. Myers. He mentioned that Beyoncé would be performing in Philadelphia the following week, and slyly asked if she would go with him if he had tickets.
Ms. Myers said yes, and a short while later, when she excused herself to go to the restroom, Mr. Kulick quickly bought tickets for the Beyoncé concert on StubHub. He showed them to Ms. Myers when she returned. “I was like, ‘What!’ Ms. Myers recalled. “I was just incredulous.”
They began dating almost immediately. Their first few months were filled with a dizzying blitz of concerts, sports events and long walks exploring Philadelphia’s food scene.
Ms. Myers was not as certain as Mr. Kulick about a future together. But on their third date, he brought along a bouquet of flowers and he told her why: “Because I like you and it’s a nice thing to do.”
“I was a jaded New Yorker when it came to the dating scene,” she said. “I always seemed to go for the life-of-the-party guys, the loudest guys in the room. Then Joshua comes along and though he’s sort of quiet and a bit introverted, he’s the sweetest, most thoughtful and generous person I had ever met. My family loved him and so did my friends.”
And so did she, a fact she could no longer ignore.
