Mike and Alexis met in 2008 while attending La Jolla Country Day School. Both missed an AP Biology exam and had to take a make-up exam. Dr. Dominico trusted Alexis enough to leave her and Mike alone while taking the test. Mike couldn’t resist and kept trying to make small-talk…and maybe even tried to get some help with the test!
After the exam, Mike looked for a reason to talk to Alexis again. A few weeks later, while Alexis was eating lunch with her friends, Mike asked Alexis and her friends if they would take a survey for his Psychology class. The next day, Mike reached out to Alexis on Facebook and asked if she had crossed out her original answer and put the more socially acceptable response after seeing what her friends selected (for the record, she didn’t ). They kept talking over Facebook for a few days, then shared AIM handles, and finally shared phone numbers. After weeks and weeks of talking, Alexis agreed to go on a coffee date.
They went off to college and tried to stay apart because they thought they should, but were seriously terrible at it. Mike and Alexis officially came back together in 2012.
And just like that, Mike and Alexis haven’t been without each other ever since!
