Meet local couple Judy (@itsjpbaby) and Austin (@auzzy). These two lovebirds originally met on Tinder and have been going strong for three years proving that sometimes the best love stories DO come from right swipes. That, along with their sweet photos of each other on the ‘gram, are two big reasons why we’re excited to have them join our #CouplesofYYC community. Read on to learn more about Judy and Austin.
How long have you been together?
We’ve been together a little over 3 years.
How did you meet?
Tinder, no really, we’re serious!
If you could choose two celebrities to play yourselves in a movie, who would you choose and why? What would the movie be about?
Austin: No brainer, I want Daniel Craig to play me because I feel like we have a similar personality and taste in suits.
Judy: I want Amanda Seyfried, she’s absolutely gorgeous and I love her energy!
The movie would be a rom-com about a couple who just moved to a big city to start their careers and are learning how to keep a balance between work and play while also making new friends along the way.
What are your top 3 date spots in Calgary?
We really love:
1. Walking through Prince’s Island Park; we stroll by the river and usually stop for a cute drink and snack at Alforno Bakery & Cafe.
2. We recently discovered Tropical on 17th and we are OBSESSED! It’s the perfect place for unique exotic drinks and yummy Latin food!
3. We also like to stop by Village Ice Cream for a cheeky evening dessert. We always get a scoop of salted caramel – it’s amazing!
If your favourite artist were to write a song about you, what would it be called and why?
We immediately thought of an upbeat Michael Bublé song called ‘we’ll play it by ear’ because we always try and plan things perfectly but we ultimately end up saying ah you know what, let’s play it by ear.
What would your advice be on how to overcome challenges in a relationship?
Talk, talk, talk! It sounds cheesy but communication is truly the key! We also think it’s important to keep in mind that you’re both on the SAME team – when you’re in disagreement remember you’re not enemies, you need to work it out together.
What superpower does your partner have?
Austin: Judy’s superpower is knowing when I’m too overwhelmed to fully focus on what she’s saying to me in that moment – it feels good to be understood
Judy: Austin’s superpower is being able to predict when I will get too tired or restless during an outing – he’ll tell me it’s time to go and why and 99.9% of the time he’s right.
