Barbara Graham and Steve Young

They met in 1999 through Steves close friend Tyde Tanner. Steve had dated previously and had even been engaged twice in 1986 and 1996 but ended both relationships. He had feared that he missed the opportunity to meet his future wife.

Her name is Barbara Graham, he told me. She's a model from Scottsdale. She goes by Barb.

Young's first thought was that he was never interested in dating models, so he thought the relationship would go nowhere. Barbara also had zero interest in dating professional athletes.

Tyde nonetheless thought that Graham was the perfect fit for his friend. After a month of persistence from Tanner, the model agreed to go on a date with Young. They went on their first date on the 21st of January 1999. Steve described his first impression about Graham as:

She wasn't just a gorgeous woman. She was independent and had a strong work ethic. She also had serious views about religion, politics, and a wide range of social issues. But the one thing I really liked was that she knew very little about football. She never watched it. In other words, it meant nothing to her that I was a famous player. She was much more interested in what I thought about the world.
