Niko and Allison first met and began talking using OKCupid in 2017. Allison was initially unsure if she was ready to be in a serious relationship at the time, as she was going through a breakup and a very high-stress work situation, but Niko was so easy to talk to, and she found herself wanting to spend more and more time with him. Niko was understanding of Allison's situation, and was very patient as she tried to figure out what she wanted. As it turned out, it was impossible for her to not fall in love with him. Within their first year of dating, they took a cruise to Alaska, adopted a dog, and bought a house together. A few years later, Niko popped the question (maybe after some not-very-subtle nudges from Allison), and they are now looking forward to married life.
