Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Sex & Relationships -

What were your first im­pres­sions?

MEL: ‘I thought, How has it taken me five weeks to meet up with this hand­some babe? His pho­tos didn’t do him jus­tice.’ JAMES: ‘I ac­tu­ally thought she was a bit stand­off­ish on our first date.’

When did you be­come ‘of­fi­cial’?

M: ‘Three weeks af­ter our sec­ond date; we were in­sep­a­ra­ble af­ter that.’

What was the mo­ment you re­alised you had found The One?

M: ‘I knew James was a keeper when he sur­prised me with a French bull­dog puppy and asked me to move in with him. I knew he was my for­ever.’

What do you love most about them?

M: ‘James is so lov­ing and sup­port­ive. He has helped me fol­low my dreams and has in­vested in my dream of buy­ing a hair sa­lon. We are now the proud own­ers of Fringe on Crown in Surry Hills, Syd­ney.’

J: ‘She’s kind and car­ing; she once passed a home­less man in the street and made me go home and choose one of my jack­ets to go back and give to him.’

James, how did you pro­pose?

J: ‘I snuck the ring with us to New Zealand and while she was get­ting ready for din­ner, I ran down to the beach and wrote in the sand, “Will you marry me?” then coaxed her down there and said, “What’s that on the sand?” When she saw it, she started cry­ing and I dropped down on one knee and pro­posed.’
