How Did Michel Janse And Brooke Smith First Meet?
Michel was really not into the whole dating scenario from the beginning as she was looking for a serious relationship. She would often cry to her mother about all the guys she met through dating apps.
So, Michel finally chose to avoid all the problems that come with dating. It was time for her to take care of herself. Michel, on the other hand, started going on dates by herself and going to fancy restaurants. After a couple of months, she got a job as a line cook at a restaurant.
She heard about a dating app from one of her roommates and set up all the details on this app one day for no reason. Michel never told anyone what this app was called. The funniest thing is that Michel chose Brooke as he stayed pretty close. And yes! It really was a chance meeting.
Both of them chose to talk in person first. They did this because they wanted to learn more about each other before going on a real date. Michel thought Brooke was a very nice person. So, at last, they went out on their first date in Los Angeles. When Michel and Brooke first started dating, Michel was only 19 and Brooke was 23. From the first day he met Brooke, Michel’s dream was to marry her. Finally, Brooke made Michel’s dream come true.

For example, Michel was going to say who he shared an office with, but he said “no” because he wanted to keep it private. She also talked openly about their sex life in multiple videos. At the end of the day, they grew apart because he didn’t want to be a YouTuber. Fans also think Michel is taking advantage of this breakup. as they can’t understand why she keeps saying she’s still “loyal” to him and wants to “protect” him when she’s dropping hints that he cheated on her.

She got a divorce from her ex-husband and moved back to Austin. It’s also clear as day that Michel is interested in or dating the co-owner of Noble Joe Coffee.
