Same story here. I met my wife while working on a project where I was
programming in a "classic computer language". She was impressed that
I was able to quickly program something that others told her would take
weeks. My management gave me a free dinner at a fine restaurant for
myself and a date. My future wife told me that she would be glad to help
me figure out how to eat at an expensive restaurant. We went out to
supper and I never went home again except to get a change of clothes
once in a while.

Maybe it's a South Carolina thing.
