The idea for the “Milestone Market," the first ever digital dating pop-up store "designed to celebrate and reward major relationship milestones – from the very first sleepover to engagements, weddings and babies" was an attempt at extending the Hinge community, says Abramowitz.

But Hinge, which markets itself as “the relationship app,” is committed to making us all believe in love and romance again."The world of dating and the way in which people meet for sure has changed, and there’s probably no going back," says Olivia Abramowitz, Hinge’s VP of Marketing.
"But that doesn’t mean that meaningful relationships can’t be formed through more modern means."And they've got the receipts, ladies and gentlemen.

I then asked Dylan to marry me in front of a crowd of ~50!!
Our most meaningful date was when we attended the first ever sleepover for grown ups at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
We had so much fun having the whole Museum (almost) all to ourselves all night long.
We have been inseparable ever since that Hinge date and are now happily married.

Dylan visited a mom & pop jewelry store in Paros to try on rings and get a sense of what he liked. That afternoon we traveled to Mykonos for the rest of the week.
