When did they start Dating?
The couple had met in the least romantic place you can imagine of all time, standing in the line for TSA. Who could’ve thought that anyone would find love in one of the most boring place, but Josh was lucky to find himself next in line to her in 2009. According to the nytimes.com, he said,
“Standing ahead of me was this stunning woman I was staring at her. She didn’t notice. Finally we started talking. Actually, I started talking and she responded.”
So, Josh ended up giving her his business card. He had also caught a peak on the tag on her bag and searched her on the internet as soon as he could. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find the particular ‘Ahn Tu Dang’ he had his mind set up on. “I was 100 percent sure I would never hear from her and that what I had done was something silly and overconfident,” he said.
But on the other side Dang had looked up Josh and worried about Josh’s celebrity status as a correspondent of ‘Dateline’ could mean that he has an ego. But after about 4 weeks she decided to call him. “I thought, let me give it a shot and see what happens” s.he said
Josh who had lectured about the Islam culture during Orlando shooting at a gay night club had given up hope, immediately invited her to lunch after he came to the realization that it was her on the phone.
“I remember walking into the restaurant and being struck by how beautiful she was,” Mr. Mankiewicz said remembering their first date. Now they have known each other enough to know that they are compatible life partners. TMZ caught up with the couple few months after their wedding where they seemed ecstatic on their newfound relationship.
