Our First Date - Meeting Charlie Shrem and Starting Our Adventure (Part 1)

in story •  last year

One cold January evening, I was pounding the pavement looking for a gig, before the acting picked up, I always cocktail waitressed and bartended so I was looking for something quick. I was walking down 39th Street in New York City when I turned to my left and saw these beautiful tall double doors, with no label on them. I was thinking “what is this place?”

There was a guy standing outside. So, I walked up to him assuming he was the manager, I asked him what this building was. He said oh this is a bar/nightclub called EVR, it’s not completely open yet. I said “Oh. Well, I am looking for work, and here is my resume.” He looked at my resume and said come on in. I opened these heavy wooden doors, entered, sat at the bar, and filled out an application. After an interview with one of the owners I got hired on the spot.

I was Loving life working at this place. It had great mixology cocktails, and great food. This place would get packed and not to mention an amazing DJ line up every night! One day, one of the owners comes up to me and says. “Courtney, one of our investors is here, please give him special attention”.

This guy comes in with a scruffy face, about 5 foot 4 and dressed so nice, with beautiful dark eyes. This guy is so full of energy and so quirky so there wasn’t anything you didn’t like about him. I introduce myself and put my hand out and he says “Hi I am Charlie”. Charlie would start to come in pretty frequently. I noticed the more he came in the more and more we started to flirt with each other. Then this whole Bitcoin phenomenon came about. That’s when I did my first Bicoin transaction for EVR, and realized crypto is the future.

After that, Bloomberg, CNN, Forbes, etc. started coming in and interviewing us while taking pictures. Charlie and I started to become closer and became facebook friends. I would start to get messages from him as well.

One night my manager said the whole staff going for drinks tonight, if I wanted to join. Turns out it was planned that Charlie and I were to have drinks alone. Apparently, Charlie Shrem had a crush on me for a month, it was mutual and it wasn’t confirmed until that night. We went for drinks, and he must have been so nervous because he vomited all over me!

I stuck around of course, that’s when you know it’s love right?

That is the start of our very long four year journey filled with ups and downs, travel, pumps, dumps, arrests and alot of craziness!

Throughout it all, we are still together and getting married!

Awwi, such a great story and awesome romance. Hope you guys will be together forever :)


Thank you @eltooni that's our plan:)

Its Magical Moment in everyone life

You two are the perfect couple of the year!!!

@courtneywarner yeah that good feeling when you're wrapped up in romance.

Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you're in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad
