Rachel and Destin: We met online on one of the
original social networking sites–Myspace! We honestly couldn’t tell you who
“stalked” who, but we became friends and were friends for over two years. Destin
lived in LA and Rachel lived in OC and would frequent the same nightspots, but
always missed each other.
When we finally did connect, Destin was instantly in love
and Rachel, well, not so much. Our birthdays are coincidentally a week apart
and at Destin’s birthday celebration he asked Rachel for a kiss, she obliged,

Kiss” is 100% true! We use our love story in our practice and suggest our
clients always go in for or accept a kiss after a date!
