February cover story!
We spoke to Kieran and Gemma, this month’s lovely Valentines couple!
Where did you meet?
Gemma: We met at Edinburgh college through my sister in Dec 2018 – it was love at first sight! In the past the spark in my other relationships didn’t last long but with Kieran it grew.
Kieran: Yeah, and then I started coming to get2gether events and encouraged Gemma to come along too.
What is the secret to healthy relationships?
K: I think it’s important to be realistic that there will be good days and bad days. Sometimes it’s difficult but we work hard at our relationship. We don’t live together but we might in the future. I live on my own and we see each other often.
G: Love and respect are so important.
What’s the best part:
G: I love Kieran so much – I love his sense of humour and he’s very caring.
K: When I’m upset, she looks after me. I love being close to her.
K: We talk a lot about our relationship, we’re honest with each other. I find mental health quite difficult and managing money. It’s been an up and down year.
G: We don’t spend as much time together as I’d like with work and life. I look forward to spending more time together.
What’s the future look like?
G: I’d like us to be together for the rest of our lives. This is my first relationship and it’s very important to me.
K: I’d like to get engaged. I have a lot of hope for the future.
