Levy Rozman And Lucy Ovich’s Dating Story Is One Of Its Kind

During a segment of Rozman’s Gotham City Podcast with Sagar Shah in 2021, the chess player and content creator revealed how he met Lucy (his wife).

It was in 2015 when he first saw her while visiting an NYU suite of a person he met via a dating app, where Lucy was the neighbor. A few months later, the YouTuber asked her on a date and went to a Singaporean restaurant.

However, it didn’t go well; she was not getting his sense of humor. Rozman said that when he asked for a second date, she made excuses like she was afraid to get on the train, so he also responded that he wouldn’t date someone who couldn’t take a train.

As reported, the two had a little argument over text, which ended their potential romance for the time being.

Two years later, in 2017, Levy again saw Lucy on a dating app and asked for another date. However, she ghosted him.

Then, again in January 2019, the chess International Master noticed Lucy’s profile on a dating app and asked her out with a joke, “Do you think after three years, I can have a second date?” They started talking and agreed to meet.

Moreover, to ensure she would not ghost him that time, he texted her ‘six hours’ before the date, ‘Hey, don’t cancel this time.’ He took her to an Ethiopian restaurant, and it went well. The two have been dating since then.

On February 10, 2021, Rozman made a Twitter (now X) post on their relationship anniversary.

Also, Ovich made an IG post on their anniversary and admitted to ghosting him, “Two years ago, I decided to stop ghosting you after 3 years, and now you make me the happiest person in the world. I love you more than I can articulate.”
