The '90 Day' franchise introduced its first same-sex couple when they brought viewers Stephanie Matto and her partner Erika Owens. The two met online and ever since then they have felt a deep connection between them. While the two have not yet come out to their parents, they know that the love they share is true and are ready to risk all for it. 

In the latest episode (March 22), Stephanie boarded a flight for Australia to meet Erika. She was excited to finally meet her face-to-face but was concerned about how things would be. One thing that worried Stephanie was the fact that she and Erika had different views about how to spend time.

For instance, Erika was more outgoing while Stephanie preferred to stay indoors and spend quality time together. Stephanie feared that she would not be able to fit into Erika's lifestyle and that could give a reason for their relationship not to work. Meanwhile, Erika was excited to just hold Stephanie and embrace her. 

She knew that they had waited too long to be with each other and when finally it was time for them to be together, she did not want to let go. Once Stephanie landed, she was worried if Erika would like her as she thought that all the travel made her smell bad. Despite this, she geared up to meet the love of her life.

Once the two met, the excitement was quite evident between them. The two rushed to each other and hugged. While it might seem like a picture-perfect meeting, speaking to the camera, Stephanie expressed her fears about Erika wanting to get intimate once they moved to the hotel. 

Since Erika stayed with her parents, the pair decided it would be best to move into a hotel. Stephanie had previously mentioned that she was a celibate and was not too keen on jumping into a physical relationship too soon. Despite having these thoughts, Stephanie never mentioned these things to Erika.
