“He’s my anchor, he’s my guy, you know,” Rosario Dawson told the Washington Post earlier this month. She was, of course, referring to her boyfriend – presidential hopeful Cory Booker. Coincidentally, that’s also what I say about my imaginary dog and my stress ball.
What makes one fall in and out of love with another human is often unpredictable (even when we feel we know ourselves fully) and such was the case for this duo, deemed a “power couple” by some and a fake by others.
According to a new unnecessarily deep, deep dive into their relationship by E! News, the two met in early 2018 but reconnected on a romantic level in October of that year.
Since then, they have divulged quite a bit about each other throughout the succession of their love story. For example, did you know Booker sings to his partner (unclear if he does so well)? Or that the Puerto Rican-Cuban actress has compiled a playlist of songs he has dedicated to her? Are you also aware that Booker’s full name is actually Cory Anthony Booker, and thus she calls him CAB for short? And, might I add, that in turn he calls her RIB, even though those aren’t her initials (they’re R.I.D)? Could it be that he’s referring to her as his metaphorical rib (AKA the life partner God literally created for him)?
There is a lot to digest in this timeline that takes readers from when they were merely acquaintances to their current relationship as partners who dream of succeeding the current tasteless, light Taki Taki-powdered man who resides in the White House. However, perhaps a favorite is certainly what attracted Dawson, who by the way was recently sued for abuse against a transgender employee, to Booker in the first place.
“What wins me over with him is definitely the dad jokes,” Dawson told the Post.
Surely relatable for a lot of us. It’s OK to pull out the cheesy card sometimes, mi gente. Particularly when your partner naturally leans in that direction, too.
“I feel like I’m dating Captain America,” Dawson once told Variety.
You hate to love to see it.
