The couples share their love stories and how they make love work in their relationship in the February 2012 article. Here are highlights from Keyshia and Daniel’s profile and Chad and Evelyn’s profile:
Keyshia on why she decided to give Daniel a chance-
“I was kind of through with relationships. I didn’t feel like guys were mature enough. What made me gravitate toward Gib was his faith in God, more than anything. He seemed like a loving person. He talked a lot about his grandmother, who had passed away, and the things she instilled in him.”
Daniel on Keyshia-
“She has morals and a big heart. Once we met things happened fast. I felt like she was perfect for me. I proposed to her on New Year’s Eve, right when the ball dropped. I got down on one knee at the same time.”
Why Chad knew Evelyn was The One
“She was up-front and honest. I never had that before. I always [say to] people in early conversations, ‘Tell me about yourself.’ They always skip a story and try to come off squeaky clean. They tell me wha they think I want to hear. she didn’t send her representative. She told me what she went through. She gave me A,B,C. She said, ‘Take it or leave it.'”
How do they make love work (Evelyn)?
“You must be open. That’s something I had never done before. I didn’t want anyone telling him something about me. He doesn’t judge me on my past or anything.”
