Couple No. 2: Erin & Ozzy
Erin: I was instantly attracted to my husband before I even met him. Our first interaction took place over the phone, when I called to ask if he would come in to the museum where I worked for an interview.
From those initial moments, I knew instantly that I really liked this guy. He was friendly, eloquent and exuded a genuine personality that came through before I even laid eyes on him.
When I did finally meet him a couple of days later, I couldn’t believe that this guy on the phone was so handsome. Ozzy is first-generation Cuban, and I was immediately attracted to his “foreign” tall, dark and handsome look. I always pay attention to the way men are dressed, and Ozzy came in that day with an immaculate suit and great shoes — something I always notice!
During our first meeting, he never stopped smiling, and even though he was the one being interviewed, he captivated the room and made everyone feel at ease and made the atmosphere relaxed.
This is what I continue to love most about him to this day — his ability to express himself and captivate an audience with his authentic personality, effusive laugh and smile, and genuine interest in the person he is speaking to.
It doesn’t hurt that he speaks five languages! Ozzy is very polite, which is an attractive feature that also caught my attention. During the interview, two women left the room, and Ozzy stood up to show respect. What a gentleman!
Ozzy: My wife, Erin, is a gorgeous blonde. Her beauty is imposing, and she stands out when she walks into a room or just on the street. But what I first remember being in awe of were her long, elegant legs.
Erin has always been an active person. Her passion for sports has also given her legs Venus would envy. We still enjoy spending time outdoors together, for the obvious health benefits and other more selfish reasons.
Before I got to know Erin, however, I noticed not only her legs but also how she used them. Erin is poised and graceful when she walks. I think she could copyright her stride. Although it might be a cliché, I really did hate to see her leave but loved to watch her walk away.
This confidence and optimism helped me want to get to know her. But the real chemistry happened on our first date. Over dinner, I learned that we shared a love for travel and exotic foods.
I remember she smiled warmly and laughed graciously at my attempts at humor. All the while, she kept her eyes fixed on me, almost as much as I kept mine fixed on her. I was smitten before the check even arrived.
In getting to know Erin, and ultimately making her my wife, I’ve come to realize that she is even more gorgeous, both inside and out, than I could have imagined when I first saw her.
