According to a mutual friend of the couple, Alexandria was the one to drive the sessions of their Coffee & Conversations meetings, while Roberts always liked to keep quiet. He would always sit in the corner of the room, thinking through things and emitting the philosopher kind of energy.

On Vanity Fair, another friend of theirs, Raul Fernandez, said:

“I think people see how glamorous she is, but these were not two glamorous people...These were two awkward, supersmart, like-to-talk-about-issues kind of people that met through this super-wonky, nerdy thing."
