"I haven't had anyone to love in several years now and it got a little lonely and I had a desire to meet someone," Santomero said.
"I'm a little bit overwhelmed, I really didn't expect all of this but it's been great, great meeting Joe," Levien said.
Santomero is a former Marine, and Levien used to be a schoolteacher in Brooklyn.
