Anne Spence and Chris Core met on a blind date, thanks to Anne’s roommate at Georgetown University. The roommate worked at radio station WMAL, where Chris was an on-air personality, and she thought they’d like each other because they were “both funny,” Anne says. The pair met in Adams Morgan and shared appetizers at one restaurant, dinner at another and dessert at a third, before going to a jazz club. Chris sent flowers the next day. “It was probably the best first date ever,” says Chris, 63, now a radio commentator on WTOP and host on XM radio’s “POTUS” (“Politics of the United States”). A year and a half later, they were engaged. “The main thing I remember,” says Anne, who’s 47 and director of marketing at the Bethesda law firm Lerch, Early & Brewer, “is discussing that we are both ‘glass half full’ people—we both see life as good.” Today, Chris says, “it’s more than half full.” The Cores, who have a 17-year-old daughter and live in Chevy Chase, celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in May.
