    "I had just gotten out of a long-term relationship two months prior. And in retrospect, I realize [Dax] had just gotten out of a long relationship. We were sitting at a table. The only thing I remember is that he talked so much."

    Kristen also joked that she had no idea who Dax even was and said, "I'm like, 'Is that one of the guys from Jackass or something?' And then we left. There were no sparks whatsoever."

    Two weeks later, the two ran into each other at a hockey game and ~started flirting~, but the sparks reallllllllllly started flying after Dax texted Kristen the day after the game.

    Kristen said his text was like, "Hi, my name is Dax. I violated your privacy and got your number from Shauna. How do you feel about that?"
