Patrice claims to have seen Comey in a Daiquiri (cocktail) party while James says they met when she suggested to him that he runs for President of his dorm council. A mutual friend eventually introduced them and got them to sit down and talk. Patrice allowing James talk about himself for three hours got James to walk away deeply in love with her.
