Medine says, "Facebook was like our own personal J-Date. [A Jewish dating site.] He saw a photo of me in an album of a friend of mine whom he was dating, and he friended me."

They couple ended up messaging each other back and forth on Facebook and then eventually went on a first date at lunch spot Via Quadronno. They entered into a relationship following the date. 

Leandra and Abie apparently broke up and got back together so many times that while they were broken up, Cohen ran into Medine while she was on a date with someone else.

Medine recalled the moment saying, "[Abie] texted me, 'That physically hurt,' We got back together the next day."

It’s been an interesting way for us to connect.”
