About Charles & Owen:
Charles & Owen have been meeting since 2022, and the two have grown really close! The two were paired for their shared interests in journalism, sports, and current events. They also both grew up in Pennsylvania, and they love to reminisce and share memories.
The two love to meet in person – and they even recently went to get ice cream together (Charles got vanilla and Owen got Chocolate). We love this pair!
"Charles and I have grown very close in the past few months. We have a great bond, a genuine friendship, and I truly see him as a mentor, unlike anyone else in my life. Charles has opened my eyes to many possibilities in life and the endless amount of paths that people can end up taking, planned or not. I’m so grateful for the bond that Charles and I have!"
