Linara Davidson and Henry Greenidge
Linara Jineé Davidson and Henry Lawson Greenidge met in the fall of 2016, in Washington, at the annual legislative conference of the Congressional Black Caucus. Mr. Greenidge was then working in the office of the New York mayor as an assistant director for external affairs, and Ms. Davidson was a regional political director for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
A mutual friend introduced them moments after another friend had finished telling Mr. Greenidge that he needed to open himself up to the possibility of meeting someone. “She left to have a drink and I turned around and Linara was there,” he said.
Ms. Davidson said that Mr. Greenidge made an immediate impression on her, too. “To be honest, when I saw him — and it’s a wonky thing to say — the moment that I saw him, something said to me in my head, that is my husband right there,” she said. “But I didn’t pay too much attention to it.”
The two began chatting and soon realized that, with all that they had in common it was amazing that they hadn’t already met. They both had jobs in New York politics, including a brief period when they both worked in the mayor’s office, went to prep schools in New York, took part in Jack and Jill of America, have parents who were physicians. And, their families even knew each other.
“It took me 35 years to meet him, but we’ve been in the same room the whole time and didn’t even know it,” she said.
The next day, Mr. Greenidge asked Ms. Davidson if she would have lunch with him two days later, when they were back in New York City, and they agreed to meet at his favorite Thai place, which was just around the corner from the Clinton campaign office in Brooklyn.
She arrived at the date wearing Converse sneakers, he remembers, which were his personal favorite footwear. He saw it as another sign.
“It just felt right,” he said. “The lunch wasn’t a very good lunch. There were awkward pauses and we both didn’t finish our food. But when we left, we shared a kiss. Just a peck on the lips but that’s when I knew she felt the same way I did.”
Caroline Baumann and John Malcolmson
Caroline Baumann and John Stewart Malcolmson met in 2011 on howaboutwe.com, a dating website that proposed two people get together for an activity rather than, strictly speaking, just a date. But the couple’s connection was even more coincident than is usually the case with these things, as neither put more than a modicum of effort into their profile.
In fact, Mr. Malcolmson stumbled onto the site because he was looking for an elegant user-interface design for a job he was working on. He signed up and went through the process of creating an account primarily so that he could assess the site’s technical merits.
Ms. Baumann had a similar lack of enthusiasm when the website popped up on her screen as a new offering.
“I thought, what the hell, I’ve dated half of New York,” Ms. Baumann said. “I gave it no time at all, because I have no time, and then, voilà! He’s the man of my life.”
Ms. Baumann was drawn to Mr. Malcolmson’s interest in the subjects that consume her own life — inspirational art and design — and though he found not much to go on in her profile, he was nonetheless intrigued.
Mr. Malcolmson proposed that the two try a tennis match, but Ms. Baumann nixed that suggestion, leery of being committed to two hours if it turned out that she wasn’t interested after all. So they agreed instead to go the Gagosian Gallery together, to see an exhibit of Andreas Gursky’s satellite images.
It was a brilliant move, as, Ms. Baumann explained, “the premise of our union is centered on art and design. It’s what glues us together.”
There was immediate chemistry between the two, and as neither wanted the date to end, they moved on to tapas and a glass of wine afterward.
“I was struck by her energy, her joie de vivre,” Mr. Malcolmson said.
