I know Valentines Day and the month of love always gets a bit of a bad rap for being a commercial marketing day to get couples to spend money, but that angle of it aside, I thought it was important to tackle the honesty of romance.

Exchanged a few emails, then a few texts and then decided to meet up one night.
And it’s been happily ever after since:
