Brooks and Katie Still Sitting on a Tree (posted 11 December 2011). Over two years after we wrote the above post, the relationship between Katie Couric and her boyfriend Brooks Perlin is still going strong.
Recently, the TV anchor dished on her boyfriend who, we now know, is the chief financial officer of a a green building materials distributor called Eco Supply Center.
Here’s Katie on her relationship with Brooks (via People Magazine): ‘I am in the process of figuring out the future and so is he. I am really happy in my personal life…but it is complicated.’
‘He’s incredibly kind, caring and sensitive, He challenges me in ways I wouldn’t be challenged otherwise. Even if we are not on the same page all the time, in like being in his space. I want him to be a thoughtful, loving person to him in every way.’
Their first meeting/first date: ‘I thought he was really cute. He asked me if I wanted to have dinner sometime and I liked that it was so direct and natural. When he called, he asked me if I wanted to be in a sailing competition with him. I don’t sail. Then he asked me if I wanted to go surfing, and I’d never surfed. I said, “listen Mr Outward Bound, how about something normal?”‘
On their age difference and being called a cougar: ‘So they call me up and they’re like “hey Katie, he was captain of the tennis team at Williams”, and I thought that was cool because that means he is smart, and then they said – “in 1996!!”‘ I knew he was younger but I didn’t think he was that much younger!’
‘I’ve been called all kinds of things. I’ve been “cougared” which was just obnoxious. But if its good enough for Demi right?’
On the future: ‘Honestly I used to worry a lot about the future. Who knows what it may bring? Hopefully it will bring good things. I am glad I can focus on the here and now in a very significant way. When you are in a netherworld of complete fear, worrying about what is around the corner, that’s not a way to live.’
