Amber J.: How did you know the relationship would work outside of the show? And what are your tips for keeping a relationship strong?
D: Chris and I always had similar interests and same sense of humor so regardless of the cameras I knew that our chemistry would go beyond the show. I find that keeping a relationship strong truly comes from validating and affirming each other. Communication is key but not just talking, it’s important to understand how your partner shares their feelings and frustrations also.
C: I knew the relationship outside of the show would work because of the conversation and similar values we share aligned. I agree with Des that one of the tips to keep a relationship strong is communication.
