GABBY, 22 & LORENZO, 23 — dating
How did the two of you meet?
We went to the same college.
What drew you to each other when you initially met?
I think we just had a lot of things in common.
Yeah I kind of noticed that later though. We were hooking up for a while before we started dating. I didn’t know her that well when we were hooking up but later I realized we had a lot in common.
If you could give a piece of advice to couples about relationships what would it be?
Make sure you’re dating someone your friends are friends with. I have some friends who have girlfriends that no one likes and the other way around. I wouldn’t date someone my friends weren’t friends with. I also think it’s important to balance your friends and your girlfriend and if you’re investing in one way more than the other, that’s a problem. One shouldn’t get more attention than the other, especially at our age.
I feel like a lot of people put a lot of pressure on a relationship. I think you need to just chill out and enjoy what you have in the moment without over thinking the future.
