"Hey, I just moved to New York and saw that you're also from Hawaii... would you want to grab coffee sometime...?"

"I don't do coffee.  I do drinks."

*taken from actual correspondence

 

out of intrigue, OR sheer boredom, noa took ross up on his suggestion to meet that week at one of his favorite dive bars IN NYC, the rusty knot

after chatting, laughing (and drinking $2 beers) for hours, noa and ross closed the bar down.

they were dating by the weekend.

After a year and a half of dating (and schlepping across town with overnight bags), Noa finally moved in with Ross, who was living near Gramercy with his best friend, Alicianne.

The three Hawaii transplants led a colorfully unorthodox life that was wholesome enough for NBC, yet offensive enough for Bravo.

2016

 

It was the BEGINNING of summer when ross accompanied noa on a "work trip" to paris...

one night, on the way to dinner, noa got down on one knee in the middle of the street in saint-Germain-des-Prés and asked ross to marry him...

baffled and bewildered, ross said, "YES!"

moments later, four of ross' best friends, from different chapters of his life, emerged from the restaurant with dirty martinis in hand!

THIS WAS NO WORK TRIP...
