Never in the history of celebrity couples had there been a love story that begun with a pat on the back. Although their romance had started to take roots through Twitter DMs and text messages before, they went out on their actual first date a week before the 2017 Met Gala to Carlyle Hotel in New York City. After drinks, she invited him over to her apartment where her mother was sitting in a nightgown, watching Law & Order. Nick hung out at her apartment for a couple of hours, but when it was time to leave, he patted her on the back. No hug, no kiss, no romantic gesture. Nick believed it was “respectful” because her mother was there, but Priyanka is still upset about it thinking it was “too respectful”.
