However, later Phoebe wrote an article about finding love over the internet and she got in contact with a “cyrano73” using an instant messenger and seemed to like him. She later decided to meet him in person, who turned out to be, voila, Jason, scared of asking Phoebe out in case she rejected him.

Phoebe and Jason dated from Season 5 to the end of Season 6, where their relationship got serious, even after Jason moved to Hong Kong for business, Phoebe moved away with him and would orb back if she was needed.

However she had to leave half-way through the dinner to deal with demons, during that time, Jason got very annoyed and headed into the kitchen to talk to Phoebe, when she, Piper and Paige orbed in right in front of him.
Later, after Phoebe was possessed by Mata Hari and crashed a business dinner of his, he grew even angrier especially when Richard showed up looking for Phoebe and revealed that he was a witch too. Richard gave Jason a potion that would free Phoebe, but he ended up kidnapped by Swarm Demons under Mata Hari’s order.
