In September 2013, Anuj Patel and Sumita Dalmia bonded on Twitter over their shared interest in attending Jazzoo—a swanky musical benefit at the Atlanta Zoo.

That fateful September day, Anuj told his followers he had an extra ticket to the event, and asked if anyone wanted to join. Sumita tweeted her interest, but Anuj had already relinquished the ticket.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] Coinage. Life well spent. Presented by GEICO. Ready to officially call your significant other your roommate? Here are some conversations we suggest having with your partner before making the big move. From food, bills, and basic apartment needs, there are a lot of costs associated with having your own place. Be mindful of each other's spending habits, credit scores and current jobs. Figuring out who is in charge of what bill is also important. In the words of TLC, you don't want no scrub. Therefore, you should not have to pay for everything, just like. Every other roommate you have ever had, creating a cleaning plan is key. You might be a better laundry folder while your partner may prefer to wash the dishes. Make sure to divide your chores evenly. No one enjoys cleaning all the time, while unless your room buff. Even though it might be awkward, you need to make sure you have an answer as to why you're moving in with each other. Are you two just cutting costs, or are you building a life together? Lastly, look at each other's schedules. Is one of you a night owl and the other an early bird? Do you prefer entertaining friends at home while your partner wants peace and quiet? Asking your partner these questions will give you a set of expectations for the future. You're writing a new adventure together. Why not have it make sense from page one? [MUSIC] Coinage. Life, well spent. Presented by Geico.
