Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love Meet

Love met Kurt Cobain on January 12, 1990, in Portland's Satyricon nightclub before fame hit, when the two led underground rock bands.

Love made advances but Cobain was evasive. Early in their courtship Cobain broke off dates and ignored Love’s advances because he wasn’t sure he wanted a relationship. Cobain noted, "I was determined to be a bachelor for a few months [...] But I knew that I liked Courtney so much right away that it was a really hard struggle to stay away from her for so many months."
