What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
Trust because without trusting yourself how can you trust the person you love.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
Something that has been planned and I would be able to tell it has had a lot of effort put into it. Plus anything involving my partner.
Share a love story.
Meeting at 18 I never would have thought I'd found my soulmate, people talk about how we are to young and we should be out experiencing the world, my response is always we are experiencing the world but we get to do it with each other. It hasn't all been a walk in the park within the first year of meeting we had moved into a flat with our friend, little did we know this would test us more than we had ever been tested before. We woke up on what we thought would be a normal Friday in Wellington but come 4 pm that had all changed our flatmate had taken his own life in our flat, the only person I had to lean on was my partner and let me tell you death and seeing death in unnatural circumstances makes you angry makes you sad but it also makes you love what you have at the time myself and my partner hadn't even been together a year and faced something no love should ever have to face. I am proud to say we made it through and have been together for coming up 5 years and I couldn't be happier with the person I have as my soulmate.
