Names:?Kathryn, 22, and John, 22

Hometown:?Dartmouth, N.S.

Together since:?2009


Their story:


"John and I (Kathryn) first met in high school, where we had classes together, but we were both so painfully shy that we never spoke a word to each other!


“I liked John since the moment I saw him, but was never able to work up the courage to talk to him. We even ended up going to the same university.

“In the summer of 2008, we found ourselves together on a pub crawl, and in a drunken stupor the next morning, I confessed to my crush on him. At the time, I was in a dead-end relationship, which ended shortly after.

“I confessed my feelings to John. We became good friends and talked daily. Then almost a year after becoming friends, we started dating and have been together ever since!”
