Katie Sturino is the founder of Megababe and the brains behind The 12ish Style. John Sturino is a law student at Hofstra. I sat down with them to talk about how they met, their relationship advice for others, and Cher Horowitz-style epiphanies. Harling: All right, easy question first: How did you guys meet?Katie: [Looking at John] What story are we giving?Harling: Are there multiple?John: It’s not an easy question for us [laughs].Katie: We met on Bumble. But there are multiple stories about what our official first date was, because we have a “PR statement” first date, and we have the real first date. It’s always just a question of, “Is my mom reading this?”Harling: Let’s hear the real story!Katie: Okay, so we both swiped right, and I was like, this guy is so hot, but is he a murderer? What’s his deal? I made him videotape his apartment.In my mind it was just a hookup.John: I showed her the inside of my freezer.Harling: Over FaceTime?Katie: No, we were texting, and he sent a video.Harling: Katie, what was your pickup line when you first reached out on Bumble?Katie: I don’t remember.John: You said, “Same.”Katie: About what?John: In response to my bio, “Just a basic guy from Queens.”Harling: How long ago was this?Katie: Three years ago. 2017.
