With that realization, they both decided to end their respective marriages before actually meeting each other.The long distance couple chose to meet in New York City. By then, Paul had seen the romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle where in the climactic scene, lead couple Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan got together at the top of the Empire State Building.
