I always love hearing the stories of how our Clear Cut Couples met and Nic and Cierra are no exception! They met their sophomore year of college in 2011 at Kent State University when Cierra moved into her off-campus apartment. Nic was the cute boy next door who at the time was unfortunately in a relationship. While they would occasionally run into each other, Cierra says that she wasn’t interested in her “wild next door neighbor.” By the spring semester, the two of them were both single and Nic’s wrestling career had come to an end so I started to see him around the house more often, grilling out and having bonfires. Having invited Cierra to a few of their bonfires, the two began talking more frequently and finally asked her out on a date to her favorite hometown restaurant.
The two began dating in 2012 but struggled with maintaining the relationship when Cierra relocated to Ohio. Cierra says that throughout this time, they stayed in touch; “we would both go our separate ways, but ensuring we saw one another any chance we were in the same place or had some free time to make a trip to visit each other.” This went on for quite some time , until they realized even distance could not keep them apart. Cierra made the decision she was going to move back to New Jersey with Nic so they could finally start their lives together.
