clara, 21 & hugo, 24 — dating
How did you meet
At a party
What drew you to each other when you first met?
I like her physically but I also like that we share interests.
Of course I also like Hugo physically, but we also share a lot of interests like the way we see the world. In the future we want to do similar things like volunteering and traveling and we have similar tastes in music and film.
Is there an obstacle or challenge you have had to confront in your relationship?
We broke up for a few months because our relationship was kind of toxic because of differing attitudes. Now we’re giving us a second chance.
What made you decide to give your relationship a second chance?
I needed some time and I think Hugo needed some time to think about our attitudes. I loved him and he loved me but it wasn’t okay so I broke up with him. We’ve been okay on this trip so we’re giving it a second opportunity.
What advice would you give to other couples?
Talk about problems because we made little problems big.
Don’t make big deals about little problems. Also, everybody is different. You are not the same person as your partner so you will think differently about a lot of things. You have to try to understand the other person.
