Meghan Markle, Meghan Trainor & Other Celebrities Who Met Their Partners on Blind Dates
Celebrities have love and care needs like anyone in the world. But due to their limited availability of time and excessive media attention, their love relationships sometimes come to unusual pressures.
They say that the best way to meet someone is through friends because they know well and know which person best matches the personality of their friends. Some celebrity couples met because they were introduced by a mutual acquaintance or settled on a blind date.
Since celebrities sometimes find it difficult to find a partner, they often turn to their friends to join them with other celebrities who have the same problem. This is how blind dates of celebrities are formed that sometimes don't work, but other times the magic happens and perfect couples are formed.

TAYLOR SWIFT AND CALVIN HARRIS
This story began as a fairy tale, thanks to Ellie Goulding. The singer acknowledged having introduced them in 2015. Unfortunately, this story did not end very well, especially after Taylor appeared with Tom Hiddleston days after finishing with Calvin Harris.
But Goulding was very happy to have introduced them. Calvin is a great friend of his and he seems like a fantastic boy. Taylor on the other hand, is such a cool person, and Goulding loves her, so he thought they would make an amazing couple.

However, Viglezio was not talking about a 70-year-old man, but about his son. With the same name as his father, François-Henri, Hayek still wasn't sure she knew him. After going out together and having a child, the couple considered getting married. In 2018 the couple renewed their votes.

KATIE COURIC AND JOHN MOLNER
Couric wanted to have a relationship, so she had asked her friends to help her find someone to date. She asked a surgeon friend of her friend Molly's husband if he knew a good doctor. Although the answer was negative, they introduced this banker friend of both.

But Douglas did not give up and because they continue together after twenty years, and they have two children, things work well for them.
