What first inspired you to create content together on TikTok?

I was living in New York City during the pandemic and when my job went remote I went to live with my grandparents in Florida. Grandma Gail watched me go on dates and we realized all the generational differences when it comes to dating so we started excuse my grandma to show people how we discuss topics from relationships to fashion and more.

On TikTok, Kim has discussed places to go on a first date in NYC. Grandma Gail, when you were growing up, what were the types of places you went to on dates?

Mostly went to get a burger and milkshake and then went to see a movie or occasionally a Broadway show.

Kim, do you break any of Grandma Gail’s dating rules? What dating rule do you follow?

I break them all the time! But I should follow them especially - don’t chase a guy unless you want to get your steps in.

Grandma Gail, where do you get your fabulous sweaters? And…how many sweaters do you think you own?

From every brand, I own more than I can count. I’ve kept some that are 20+ years old!

Kim, do you introduce your dates to Grandma Gail?

If she happens to be there when they pick me up! We’ve done double dates a few times too.

Kim, what is the most special item your Grandma has passed down to you and what makes it meaningful?

 Definitely one of her bags, they’re such specific pieces that she curated and I feel special every time I wear one.
