Q & A with Elaine & Travis – a real life model couple from our latest Valentine’s Day lookbook.
1. How did you guys meet?
T: We met at work through a mutual friend/roommate. I lived and worked with the guy in Florida before moving to China, and Elaine lived and worked with him in NY.
When he decided to move to Texas to live with his girlfriend, he passed me along to his bosses as his replacement and I got the job.
We were recruiting to staff retail stores and we basically had to spend nine hours a day with each other walking around NY.
E: I met Travis at work 5 days after he moved back from China. I hated Travis at first lol.
But then we realized we had all common interests and the same belief system.
We started holding hands, got married six months later, and have been together ever since!
That was about 5 years ago now.
2. Describe the perfect romantic date.
We are both pretty casual. I would say ordering in all of our favourite takeout and cuddling while watching movies.
Or going to one of our 5 favourite restaurants in NY and then going home to snuggle.
If you ever head to NY check out Ruby’s in Soho (Bronte Burger only), Gyu Kaku, Saigon Market on university, Harlem Bbq or Artichoke pizza on 17th!
3. What would you wear on a Valentine’s date?
Dressy casual. If at home sweatpants!
4. What is the best Valentine’s gift?
Chocolate! We are both obsessed with chocolate!
5. Do pick-up lines work? What is the best one you’ve used/heard?
Maybe if they are funny!
