How did you meet/fall in love?
Me and Brad actually met in the 2nd grade and we were best friends all through grade school and high school. After a few years in college, I transferred back to the Milwaukee area and our relationship evolved pretty organically to where we are today and we've been together ever since.
How long have you been together?
I like to say we've been together that whole time, but we've been a couple for about 6 and a half years.
Are you married?
We are not married but are definitely planning on it in the future. I work in the wedding industry and for right now that's enough for me!
Any advice for couples just starting to date?
Don't try to change your partner and love them for who they are and want to be! We've had the luxury of being so close even before we became a couple, so we both knew the aspects of each other's personalities that are who we are and accepted them before we fell even deeper in love! Compromise and arguments are inevitable and learning to grow and respect each other from it is what allows relationships to flourish. We're not experts by any means and just knowing that if it works for you and your partner --that's all that matters. Also, don't forget the importance of date nights and compliments after being together for a long time--it keeps things fun!!
