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 would've thought that anyone would find love in one of the most boring places, 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 flip side, Dang had looked up Josh and worried about his celebrity status as a correspondent of ‘Dateline’ could mean that he has an ego. But after about four weeks she decided to call him. “I thought, let me give it a shot and see what happens” she said.
