Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Definitely. It’s important to always be thinking about your girl and to continue growing together each and every day.

In my past relationship, I would always receive handmade cards on Valentine’s Day. I loved them because they were sentimental and took a ton of effort to create.

What’s the closest you have ever come to being married?
Very serious “future” talks and ring shopping. That’s pretty close.

Do you like being the center of attention, or do you prefer being more mysterious and why?
Definitely mysterious. I don’t like to be too predictable.
