Natalia moved to New York a year ago and needed a place to stay. Sophia’s roommates were out of town, so a mutual friend suggested she crash at Sophia’s place for a while. “The first night we met, a big group of our friends decided we should all go out to a bar,” says Sophia. “Natalia came home with me, but somehow she ended up in my bed rather than on my couch. And she’s been there ever since.” What’s their secret to a successful relationship? “We have huge crushes on each other,” they say.
