Cute Campus Couple

Luis Méndez & Félix Sambrana


How’d you two meet?

FS: Okay.

They both laugh.

LM: Now that’s a story.

FS: This story, esta historia está algarete. I met him because he was going out with my ex.

Her Campus: Oh!

FS: Yeah! My ex and I were on and off, and at that moment we were off, so my ex was going out with him. And… That’s how we met!

LM: On our first date (his ex and me).

FS: Yeah… It was like two years after that we had left each other for good (my ex and me), and we decided to go out, and here we are!

LM: During that, we had been friends for a long time, and we noticed we were very much alike.


How long have you been together?

FS: Actually, starting tomorrow, 2 years!

HC: Ah! Congrats!

FS: Thanks!


What was the first thing you noticed about each other?

FS: Honestly, your hair.

LM: Well, considering the circumstances in which we met, the hate in his eyes.

FS: Well, yeah, I mean, I was jealous. You were with my ex whom I still liked.

HC: Well, we did interview another couple that hated each other at first, and now they’re going strong.

FS: See? Except, gotta admit, our situation was pretty f**ked up.

LM: Obviously!


What makes your relationship work?

FS: Honestly, I think that what makes our relationship work is how in sync we are with each other. We understand each other very well. I mean, if… It’s that we’re so alike that we’re normally in the same vibes and state of being. We like the same things, we dislike the same things…

LM: For example, sometimes I can be thinking something, I say it, and then he says he was thinking the same thing.

FS: And in the weird times when we’re not in sync, we always reach a middle ground or meet halfway.


One word to describe your partner.

FS: One word that describes you? I think that comprehensive. It’s that you know I’m always dying from anxiety or whatever, and you’re always… I don’t know how or where you get all the patience you have, but, you have to be comprehensive.

LM: Neither do I. Hmm… I think the word I would use would be a**hole in a good way because tú te las traes a veces, but it’s good. I’m one too.

FS: At what level would you put me?

LM: Well, if we had to do a scale from 1-10, maybe a 7. 10 is intolerable and 5 is everybody.


Happy two year anniversary Luis & Felix! <3
