What is the plot of 'Longest Third Date'?
Matt and Khani met on the dating app, Hinge, and went on two perfectly pleasant dates before deciding to discover their adventurous side and fly to Costa Rica for their third date. Matt and Khani had no idea that their third date would turn out to be the longest, lasting 79 days after they decided to fly to Costa Rica in March 2020, the start of the global lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The couple were forced to live in Costa Rica as the borders were closed, their flights were canceled, and it became impossible for them to fly back to the United States. Matt and Khani discuss the pressures they felt at the time and how they were capable of making it past the longest date of their lives in the documentary. The time also managed to prove to be an unusual compatibility test for the couple, and their story has people wondering if it is possible to fall in love with someone during the world's most uncertain time.
Catch the premiere of ‘Longest Third Date’ on April 18 on Netflix.
