The next day, Tartick shared a story on Instagram about how the mom of 4-year-old daughter Mary-Katherine (MK) took a leap of faith to spend more time with him after they had their first kiss.

“Kat was supposed to leave town and I was leaving the following day,” he captioned a June 13 Instagram photo of Stickler. “She FaceTimed me when she got on the plane and said ‘should I get off this plane and go to you? Is that too much? I should just stay on, right? But it would be pretty romantic…I think. What do you think?’ I told her to do it since she didn’t have MK that weekend… and she didn’t even hesitate.”

Tartick proceeded to explain that Stickler “got all her things from the overhead” and made her way off of the plane.

“Flight attendant asked where she was going and all she said was ‘I’m gonna go see a boy I just met!!’ and then all the passengers started clapping and cheering and she left the plane and that night we had our first dinner where it was just us,” he wrote. “I’ll never forget the feeling I had taking this picture right before that first date night.”

Also on Thursday, June 13, Stickler posted an Instagram Reel in which she joked with Tartick about what they would caption their Instagram hard launch. She tossed out suggestions like "best brother ever" and "keep it in the family," poking fun at commenters who have said that Stickler and Tartick look alike.

"I’m really going to need to learn how to tell when you're sneaky recording 🤣," Tartick commented on the video.

“I tried to get Kat on the podcast in Tampa Bay she confirmed and then last minute, she canceled on me,” Tartick explained at the beginning of the episode. “That's, you know, tough. But we did get her pegged down here. We had a dinner, and we were with some friends I was telling her about the pod, what she can expect.”
