Real Couple: Kylin & Jordan

Meet this Hoosier couple who married on October 10, 2010 (10/10/10!).

Location: Plainfield, IN

Their Digs: They rent a 650 sq. ft. apartment with 1 bedroom and 1 bath.

Ages: She’s 21; he’s 25.

Together Since: Spring 2009

Relationship Status: Married since October 10, 2010. “We surprised our guests with a swing dance to Hall & Oates’s ‘You Make My Dreams’ as our first dance!” says Kylin.

How You Met: They met in the summer of 2007 at church. Jordan moved, and they stayed in contact through email and Facebook until May 2009, when they met up again in person and “almost immediately started dating,” says Kylin.

Careers: Kylin is a student and a waitress, and Jordan is a creative director at a digital advertising agency.

Baby Clock: “We’re waiting until I finish college to talk about it!” says Kylin. “But we are very excited about adding to our family.”

Most Annoying Habits: Jordan hates that Kylin bites her nails, while Kylin can’t stand Jordan chewing with his mouth open.

Biggest Compromise: Their biggest compromise was finding a location to live together! Kylin had to move an hour away from family, while Jordan had to move 40 minutes away from work.

Interests & Hobbies: Jordan is a third-degree black belt in tae kwon do and competes in tournaments across the country. Kylin enjoys any kind of art and doing crafts. They both love music, movies and being active in church.

Guilty Pleasures: Cheesy movies and rainbow push-ups!

Something Nobody Knows About Them: “We talked about getting married someday only three months into our relationship,” says Kylin.

Nicknames You Have for Each Other: Kylin sometimes calls Jordan “J-Money.” Jordan is a little more traditional, calling Kylin “sweetie.”

Pets: A long-haired, pale-orange tabby named Fortune Cookie that Jordan gave to Kylin as a birthday present. (“We actually had fortune cookies as wedding favors!” says Kylin.)

Sex Life: About four times a week

In 10 Years They Will Be: In a home with a porch, raising a child (or two!) and “talking about all the memories we made traveling the world!”
