"I hit on him first," Metz explained during an appearance on Amazon's "Style Code Live." "He was eating something and I was like, 'You better slow down or you’re gonna choke!'"

"I’m a classy broad," she quipped.

"Then I said, 'The real question is hard shell or soft shell taco?' And (Stancil's) like, 'Hard shell.' I‘m like, 'Soft shell. We can share! Let’s go!'" Metz revealed.

The actress described her thoughtful beau of several months as "literally the best."

When the Golden Globe nominee attended the awards ceremony last month, Stancil supported his lady in the sweetest way possible.

"I was telling a friend that he put a little note in my clutch for the Globes," said Metz. "He’s like, “You’ve already won. Just have a great night, I love you.'”

"Like, stop," the actress said in happy disbelief. "It’s real."
