Terri speaks to us about their relationship!
How long have you and Gareth been together?
We have been together for almost 9 months (270 days today).
How did you meet Gareth?
We had both recently split from other relationships and saw each other being unhappy on Twitter. We helped each other through the breakups, met up 4 months later for the 1st time. I felt relaxed and it was so easy. I liked how kind he was and very easy to get on with. We became a couple a month later. :)
What is your favorite activity to do together?
We love stargazing. Gareth bought me a star for Christmas! He bought my star off the internet, it is an un-named star that we have now named PandaMonkey (our pet names for each other). Gareth is a photographer so we go on long walks so he can take pictures of scenery.
We love watching together rugby too! In the picture below, we were at a rugby league game supporting our local team The Wigan Warriors!
What is the most testing challenge you both have faced so far?
I suffer bad with anxiety and this was hard in the beginning of our relationship. I was afraid of meeting up with him initially, meeting his family and friends. He was so supportive and never pushed me. It was all at my own pace. There’s not just 1 specific time i can think of… He supports me every day and I couldn’t thank him enough :)
How does LoveByte help you in your relationship & what do you use the app for mostly?
I had meningitis, so it affected my memory and I am forever noting things down on calendars and in diaries so I don’t forget them. For me, adding all the special dates onto LoveByte helps me remember them and it stores all of our pictures. (especially the ones you don’t want to share on social media!)
It helps because we record dates you wouldn’t necessarily remember and it always feels nice to look back on them and see how far you have come as a couple.
What is the best advice you would give other couples out there to keep loving?
Terri: Always be honest. We don’t have any secrets and 9 months in we havnt had 1 argument! We work really well together and would do anything for each other.
Gareth: Always be yourself. There’s no point pretending to be someone you’re not!
We wish them all the best in their relationship.
