Edd and Nara may have had a slow start to their love story, but once they got going there was no turning back! Read on to hear how these two keep the love alive in the City of Angels.
Location: Los Angeles, CA
How did you meet?
We met at one of my shows. Her brother, whom I was friends with prior to meeting her, dragged her along to come see my band play. It was pre-show and I was outside the venue stuffing my face with tacos. She introduced herself, “Hi, I’m Nara,” and I replied “Nara. That’s a funny name.” Smooth.
What is the best advice you could give couples for a happy and harmonious relationship?
Talk to each other and listen. It really goes a long way and prevents misinterpreted feelings from turning into nasty fights/arguments. Always remember: a hug can completely make your boo’s day.
What does the typical Saturday night look like for you two?
Usually dinner, drinks or the movies. We love sitting down at a bar together, talking about nonsense and enjoying a well-crafted cocktail.
If someone made your love story into a book, what would the title be?
It Should Have Been A Year Ago. When I finally mustered up the courage to ask her out, it was a little over a year after we had met. To this day, she believes we could have started dating a year earlier!
What is your favorite feature in Avocado?
The hugs! Duh!
Do you have a funny or memorable Avocado story?
Oh man…the first time Nara discovered you could use a different photo to “kiss” through the app. She started “kissing” creepy candid shots of my face that I never knew she had taken.
What’s your favorite guacamole recipe?
Oh man, Nara makes a mean guac. It’s all about the extra lime juice and the spicy jalapeños. SO. DAMN. GOOD.
What’s your favorite thing about your boo, and what’s your boo’s favorite thing about you?
I love her devotion to me. I have never felt so much passion and love from another human being. She loves the endless amount of support I throw her way. I will ALWAYS be her #1 fan and will forever make sure she knows how much of an incredibly talented and beautiful person she is.
