How far would you go for the one you love?
Well, it’s the quarantined season, so going out on a date is off the table, right? Wrong
Here a man who changed that idea.
Jeremy Cohen noticed that a girl was dancing on a roof next to his house in Brooklyn. When he waved at her, she waved back. Well, having a good response, Jeremy sent a drone to her with his number, and that’s how their romance started.
“I actually haven’t been on a date in at least a year. I think I was just craving some social interaction, and being confined by the walls of my apartment inspired some creativity for me.” Commented Jeremy.
Amidst the ones who just eat, sleep, and repeat, Jeremy used the quarantine as productive. “I’m all cooped up in my apartment alone, so its definitely different than my normal life of being out and about all the time (there’s so much to do in NYC!) For now, I’m taking it day by day.”
“I looked out my window and saw this girl dancing, perhaps to a TikTok song? I needed to say ‘Hi’ to her.”
She waved him back
“So I waved to her on my balcony and she waved back.”
The girl from the roof – Tori
Attaching his number to the drone
“I grabbed my tape, pen, drone, and paper. Then I wrote down my digits and sealed them on my drone. Flirting is normally daunting for me, but since I’ve been quarantined in my apartment for a week now, I was screaming for social interaction.”
“Text me” with his number
In the mission
And Tory was really surprised
“2020 has been off to a terrible start, but I still needed to shoot my shot. She picked up my drone, and I guess it worked because I got a text from her an hour later.”
And she texted him
Next day, though Jeremy decided to ask Tori out, she wondered how it could work
“I still can’t believe this happened the other day. Now it’s time for part two. I asked her out for dinner, but she said ‘How?'”
Fear not, Tori and Jeremy’s roommates organized the whole thing before 30 minutes before the date
“I sneakily coordinated with her roommate earlier to set it up.”
Following the rules of distancing, Jeremy sat on his balcony, and Tori was on her rooftop.
“5 PM hits. It was time for our date. Wait, where is she? Just kidding. We follow the rules. I waved down at the balcony, and she waved back.”
Jeremy is a pro photographer. So he took some shots of their first date.
“I told her she looked beautiful. So we got on FaceTime and ate our matching organic, microwaved single dinners together.”
“The date was going so well, and depending on how long this quarantine lasts, I might be in a long-distance relationship with someone who lives across the street from me. I excused myself to the bathroom. Of course, I didn’t have to go, I just wanted to tell my group chat how well this was going.”
And right now, he says, “So far so good, we had our first date two days ago which went super well. Going on our second date soon. It’s a little strange with all the pressure of everyone watching compared to a normal date, but I think I can handle it!”
Here we are, waiting for the adventure part three
“I think it’s time to take his relationship to the next level.” When asked what are his plans for part 3, all he could say was:” I don’t think anyone is going to expect it, even Tori. It’s a surprise for her just like the last date.”

On TikTok, this video went viral, and Jeremy became suddenly famous. He was asked how he felt about this: “In a positive way! It makes me feel good to know people are rooting for me, but more importantly, it gives something for people to believe in during these strange and dark times. If this story brings joy to people, then it brings joy to me.”
