Are Matt and Khani still together from Longest Third Date? We discuss the highly topical documentary and whether the couple stayed together. 

Netflix has released the bizarre documentary Longest Third Date, which follows a couple that ends up having to stay together due to Covid, even though they hardly know each other.

The strange setup was crying out for a documented account of the events, and that’s precisely what happened.

Luckily Matt had aspirations of becoming a social media influencer and decided to vlog constantly and document their experiences to help boost his channel on YouTube.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This article is designed to get you up to speed on the couple and answer the question, are Matt and Khani still together from Longest Third Date?

Who are Matt Robertson and Khani Le?

Matt Robertson was a 34-year-old marketing executive, and Khani Le was a 32-year-old publicist when they hooked up through a dating app. Matt now works in New York as an account executive in the film industry, and Khani has moved on to be a brand publicist.

Matt was keen to vlog constantly and document the events, but Khani, who had experience working as a publicist, was not eager to be involved with someone who seemed to crave the limelight. She was often uncomfortable with the camera being on them all the time.

They would meet on an online dating app called Hinge, and the trip was only their third date together.

Are Matt and Khani still together from Longest Third Date?

Yes. Despite the lockdown, the couple is still together and lives in New York. The couple had planned a spontaneous third date, a trip to Costa Rica, but as fate would have it, the trip was to take place on March 17th, 2020, and the short trip ended up as a three-month-long stint due to lockdown.

Being trapped in a country with a stranger during a global crisis could have been a living nightmare, but for this particular pair, it led to romance.

Costa Rica’s motto, “pura vida,” translates to “simple life.” They decided to make the best of the situation and did everything together, learning about each other’s lives quickly and then realizing they were falling in love.

This story is almost like a Hollywood rom-com, so it’s no surprise that the documentary has captured viewers’ imagination.
