After a short Couple Of The Week hiatus we are so thrilled to be starting up again with this beautiful and unique couple. These Doctor Who fans and dog lovers have found their perfect match! Enjoy reading all about their LoveTrip and their great advice for new couples.
Roo & Giles
Ages: 27 & 26
Status: Together nearly 5 years and looking for our first house
How did you meet?: (Roo) My friend and I walked into a pub at Halloween and realised that we were the only ones in costumes! Thankfully we noticed three others dressed up at the bar and all got chatting for safety in numbers. I was instinctively the most comfortable talking to Giles and we swapped numbers and met up a few days later. From then on, we were inseparable and still are nearly 5 years later!
When did you realize you were in love?: We seemed to click straight away and share lots of the same viewpoints. After a few weeks we felt as if we’d known each other forever and knew it was love. Five years later we know we’re meant for each other.
What qualities in each other make you a good match?: We’re both caring and love animals (and lots of dog walks). We support each other through the hard times and spend lots of time outdoors visiting old castles or ruins as we both love history. We’re both nerdy and love watching Doctor Who or Harry Potter (and even went to the Doctor Who Experience and WB Harry Potter studio tour together). We’re also both quite romantic and surprise each other with little gifts all the time as well as really overdoing the festivities at Christmas.
What is your perfect date night?: We love to end a day out by having a relaxing dinner and cuddling up (us and the dog) to watch a film on the sofa with our Moroccan lanterns lit.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced as a couple and how did you get through it?: (Roo) I lost my Grandma quite early into our relationship and Giles was so supportive as I was very upset and stressed. It solidified our relationship and showed me that he was the support system I had been missing in my life.
What is one thing you would like to improve about your relationship?: (Roo) Giles would like me to be a lot less untidy! (Giles) Roo would like me to be a better cook as I have a limited selection of meals I can cook.
What advice would you go back and give yourselves when you just started dating?: We both tried to hide our insecurities from each other, not realising we both had them! We would tell our younger selves to be honest and open about our pasts and emotions.
