Relationship Status: Taken
How long have you been together? September 2nd, 2011, although we started “talking” since Valentine’s Day of that same year
What is his best physical feature? His Smile. His eyes. His hair. His lips. Physically, he’s my complete package. When I see him, and cannot help but smile. He really is my handsome man.
Non-physical feature? His personality! He’s so random and even quirky at times. His laugh always brings a smile to my face and his voice just melts my heart, especially when he’s whispering “I Love You” into my ear. I know I hold his heart. Also, he’s a really, REALLY good dancer! Beautiful both inside and out!
How did you and Daniel meet? Orchestra is when I first noticed him, but we had other classes together. However, when I heard him first play the violin, he held my attention in a way that none of my other classmates could.
What was your first impression? He always had a smile on his face, and was always so energetic and fun loving. When I picture him in my head, he’s always smiling, looking at me with that spark in his eyes and a gaze of pure bliss and innocence.
Still think that? Of course! By getting to know him better, I can only love him more and deeper. I have a much better understanding of him and what influences him and motivates his many actions. He’s my “fun side."
Where did you go for your first date? Grand Lux for our 1 month anniversary, although we also went to the movies several times before we were an official couple. Then again, we spend almost every moment of the day and night together that we don’t have classes, including work. So, in a sense, even just playing xbox together or catching lunch together is like a date in itself. My passion for him isn’t just reserved for when we’re out together in public on official “dates.”

Relationship Status: In a Relationship with Alex J. McManus
How long Together: Almost 6 months
His Best Physical: This would sound cliché but everything about him is so amazing. I would have to say that a combination of his eyes and his voice awaken things inside of me and also calm me down, I don't know how he does it or if he even knows what it does to me.
Non-Physical Feature: He is amazingly intelligent, and brilliant. The way that he does certain things and with such detail are amazing, and he thinks of things that I wouldn't have thought of that better my thinking and in the end make me a better person. We help each other in a lot of ways.
How we met: I first saw him in our music theory class, and didn't first talk to him until second semester of freshman year in music history when he walked in on me playing the piano before class. That was when we first talked to each other.
First Impression: I knew he was really intelligent, and he came off sort of strong the first time that we met, and talked, and I felt like we were sort of competing. The second time that we met though was completely opposite and we laughed and talked for a while and it was sort of awkward given the circumstances at the time which I will not disclose. So my overall first impression was that he was an interesting individual who was a nice guy and I really didn't know what to make of him except that he was nice and funny and we seemed to just get along with each other really well.
Still think that: I still think that he is a great guy except that now I know he is the most amazing man that I have met in my life and that I respect and love of course. I feel like I am connected with him in a way that I can't with anybody else and to have something like that is amazing. Like I always say he holds my heart in his hands.
First Date: Our first date was when we went to the movies, and our first date as a couple was at the Grand Lux Cafe for our 1 Month anniversary.
