D'Agostino recounted how he met his high school sweetheart. They met in a deli he worked in, and he was "transfixed" on her immediately, but didn’t have the guts to act on it. At the age of 18, he left for a trip to Europe and didn't see her for a year and a half until he returned home.
Once he was back, D'Agostino approached her once again with a nonchalant, "Don’t I know you from somewhere?" and was shocked when she happily replied, "Yes! But I'm not going to tell you from where." This prompted him to ask her out on a date, and the relationship grew from there.
D’agostino asserted that, "Having someone to confide in and rely on can make all the difference in the world."
He advised the boys in the audience to “listen” and the girls that sometimes guys “want to be left alone”.
He understood what high school teens go through and addressed it in a very open and relaxed way.
In closing, he told the students, "Make sure whoever you're with is someone you can achieve your dreams through."
