They met at a party while waiting in line for the bathroom; Priscilla later told The New Yorker that she thought Mark was “this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there.”
“I remember he had these beer glasses that said:
It’s a tag for C++. It’s like college humor but with a nerdy, computer-science appeal.”
When Mark left Harvard in 2005 to focus on Facebook full time, he began recruiting classmates for positions at the facebook (as it was then known). Mark was sitting outside after a campus recruiting session when Priscilla walked by:
“Hey Priscilla, do you want a job at the facebook?”
She smiled, and offered him a candy.
Priscilla has imposed strict rules on her relationship with Mark. The top rule is: “One date per week, a minimum of a hundred minutes of alone time, not in his apartment, and definitely not at Facebook.”
