MAZ AND MAX

 CHARLESTON, SC

 Transilient: What are your favorite things about each other?

 

MAZ:  She makes really terrible puns all the time, yes, also she’s really nice.

 

MAX :     Yeah, he’s really soft and nice and patient and considerate and doesn’t blow up at me instantly when I’m an idiot, which is cool, he doesn’t freak out if something goes a little bit wrong…stable, happy, good…plays well with others.

 

Transilient: How did you meet each other?

 

MAX: Tinder.

 

MAZ: Tinder success story.

 

Transilient: What drew you to one another through the others profile? What did you talk about online?

 

MAX: We talked about cats in our first conversation.

 

MAZ: We talked a lot about atheist stuff in our first conversation, too.

 

MAX: I got into school as an atheist activist, because I sued my high school district cause they had a graduation prayer and we won that lawsuit. Then I went to college and started a student group that was built around atheist activism and that was a lot of what was going on in my profile when we met.

 

MAZ: .. and she had a really goofy smile too and I was like; yes. that. exactly that.

 

Transilient; What are you going to miss the most about college?

 

MAX: A queer community that really trusts me, cause I’ve got that here real strong, and it's not the kind of thing that’s going to pop up the second I move.

 

MAZ: I’m going to miss resources I guess. There’s nowhere you can, like, go and print something for free, something dumb like that, like being able to talk to my professors and be like– Hey, I I don’t know what the Hell I’m doing with anything… and they can be like, I can help you with these things!
