Pete Buttigieg’s husband Chasten tells the story of their first date


Pete and Chasten married in June 2018, three years after they connected on the dating app Hinge. Pete asked Chasten to have a coffee during lunchtime , but Chasten stuck in a traffic jam on the way from Chicago and when he finally arrived the only way left was to have a dinner. A very romantic dinner. “When I pulled up in front of his house to pick him up, he opened the door and we both said ‘howdy’ at the same time. Then we both said: ‘What? That’s my word.’ It was kind of a cute meet-cute,” said Chasten to Now This. The couple first met in person in September 2015, bonding over a plate of Scotch eggs in a South Bend, Indiana pub. Chasten, who came from Midwestern part of the country, has never eaten anything like that, but when he tried, he said it was really magical.
