Love will always find its way. Just take Jeremy Cohen’s situation as an example: while stuck in quarantine in New York, Jeremy is now dating his neighbor whom he got to know after spotting her dancing on a rooftop near his home. He sent over his phone number using a drone and his stunt is gaining lots of attention on social media.
Jeremy is a music photographer and filmmaker who is based in Brooklyn, New York. He has worked with Lizzo, Miley Cyrus, and other celebrities. He was just one of the many stuck in quarantine in America, and as he was wondering what he should do with his spare time, he noticed a girl dancing on a neighboring roof.
Flirting in a Creative Fashion
He talked with the New York Post and mentioned that he thought she was cute from far away. With everyone looking for some kind of social interaction during this time, he figured now would be the best possible time to make an introduction.
He documented the meet-cute on TikTok, a social media platform, which has now gone viral. In the video, you see two neighbors waving to one another despite the distance between their buildings, which made conversing difficult.
Also in the video, you can see Cohen writing down his phone number on a paper, taping it to his drone, and navigating the drone to her. Her name is Tori C, and she says that her dance moves were to a song from “High School Musical” that she was filming with her roommate during the quarantine.
Dating During Quarantine
She wasn’t expecting a phone number from the interaction. For Cohen, flirting can be difficult even though he is a hopeless romantic. In the videos that followed, it showed how the two were sharing a dinner date while each of them was on his or her own balcony.
The two clinked their wine glasses over a FaceTime call and Cohen joked that he might even end up in a long-distance relationship with someone who lives across the street due to quarantine.
But it’s just another day that goes to show how it’s always possible to find hope in dark places.
