Georgia Kostopoulos and Jacob Rae
Georgia Vasiliki Kostopoulos and Jacob Michael Rae met in Washington in March 2014 at a career weekend sponsored by N.Y.U. School of Law.
It was an instant connection. “I was at a table and Jake came over and started talking, and he was funny and sweet and seemed like a very interesting person,” Ms. Kostopoulos said. “I felt like I had always known him, and couldn’t imagine a time when I hadn’t.”
Mr. Rae said he “instantly realized that Georgia was a very charismatic person.” He talked to her for hours, and over the next few months, they settled into a close friendship.
But whenever Mr. Rae tried to stretch the boundaries of their friendship, he noticed that Ms. Kostopoulos seemed to make excuses about why she wasn’t able to spend free time with him. Weeks would also go by, he said, without seeing her in class.
He eventually asked her out on a date, and learned the reason behind Ms. Kostopoulos’s excuses and absences. Her mother had been diagnosed with an aggressive Stage 4 cancer. Convinced that her life as a caregiver of a dying parent was too chaotic to impose on anyone else, Ms. Kostopoulos reluctantly turned Mr. Rae down and the two agreed to remain friends.
Ms. Kostopoulos expected Mr. Rae to fade from her life, but with each passing day, as she shared more about her mother’s illness and care with him, he remained a calming and welcome presence.
“I felt that there was nothing that was getting thrown at him that he couldn’t handle,” Ms. Kostopoulos said.
The two eventually began dating, and in April 2015, Mr. Rae was invited to a Greek Easter celebration with Ms. Kostopoulos and her mother. “My mom got to know Jacob really, really well and liked him very much,” Ms. Kostopoulos said.
About a year later, Ms. Kostopoulos’s mother died. By that time, Ms. Kostopoulos had missed most of her law school exams for the semester, and it was unclear whether she would be able to complete her degree without taking time off.
Maria Joan King and Max Savage
Ms. King recalled a brief meeting when a mutual friend introduced her to Mr. Savage in June 2014 after Parquet Courts played at the Sugar Hill Supper Club in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
“The music was energizing and the lyrics were very political and intellectual,’’ Ms. King said. “The crowd was excited and super-energized. I was not in the fray.”
The encounter with her, in the chaotic moment after the show, did not register with Mr. Savage. “I think I was preoccupied,” he said. “I was either looking for food, or loading out our gear.”
In early September, she did not escape his notice when they ended up hanging out with mutual friends at the Johnson’s, a bar in Bushwick, Brooklyn. “I remember asking her what she was doing the next day,’’ he said. “She said she might be going to a concert.” He immediately countered with, “We should just get drinks instead.’’
The next night over Old Fashioned cocktails at the Three Diamond Door bar in Bushwick, they bonded over classic American diners, Russian literature and their eclectic music tastes. They were especially excited about their shared passion: They could sing along to most ’90s alternative radio hits.
Later that evening they went to a birthday celebration at 7B Horseshoe Bar on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where a jukebox loaded with punk music, including the Strokes, played in the background. Some fans, he recalled, gave him a “real boost” and “a lot of points for the first date.”
“I remember an Australian couple knew Max’s band, and recognized him,” she said.
They began seeing each other on weekends (he skipped a fall band tour to take five math classes to finish up at N.Y.U.), and in November she attended a show for the first time as his girlfriend at Death by Audio, a club formerly in Brooklyn, and met his bandmates and friends. The next spring she accompanied Parquet Courts to the Coachella festival in Indio, Calif. They also went off on their own to places like Joshua Tree National Park.
