Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend Edward ( E.J) Scott have been together since they met on Match.com in November of 2007. Yes, that’s right –– even the celebs use online dating. Ain’t nothing to be ashamed of!
During an interview with a True Blood fansite, E.J says, “I was on Match.com for almost two years. I met a lot of really great ladies but nothing really worked out for whatever reason ... She [Deborah] got talked into signing up one night and I found her immediately.”
Deborah was surprised when E.J suggested that she come see him perform on stage for their first date! She tells Elle, “He came off the stage and he was really cute!” Yeah, we’re sure he was, but after being on set with Eric all day, why even bother?
Nowadays, Deb and E.J’s special nights are just as adorable as their first date. She tells Elle, “We cook a really good meal, like salmon and asparagus and rice, and then we cuddle up on the sofa and watch a really fun movie.” –– “And make out,” adds E.J.
Thanks for clarifying, dude.
As far as we know, Deborah and E.J are doing the long-distance thing –– with him living in Chicago and her vamping it up in LA. So, how do they make it work?
During his fansite interview, E.J said, “We see each other at least once a month, usually at least a week at a time. Lately it’s been every couple weeks ... We Skype everyday and call and text each other all the time. We love each other more than ever and that’s good ... I never thought long distance would be possible and I wouldn’t recommend it to people either, but we’re doing it and I think we’re doing a good job at it. She’s the love of my life.”
Long distance is by far the least challenging part of Deborah and E.J’s relationship. E.J battles choroideremia, a condition which causes eventual blindness. We feel so sad that one day he won’t be able to see his gal’s gorgeous face and pointy fangs, but hopefully some advances will be made in research before he loses his vision completely.
If Deborah and E.J can make it through long distance and a serious medical condition, they can make it though anything. They’re in real, legit Truebie love!
