The secret to a good relationship? Surprising your significant other with Chipotle and putting family first—according to our latest #RelationshipGoals featured couple, Blake and Chad.

Blake and Chad met in high school and sort of fizzled out. But years later, the two rekindled on Facebook and instantly sparked up again. In the years that had passed since last meeting, both Chad and Blake had dated (and even married!) other people. But their love has proven to be super strong—just wait until you hear how he proposed.

How they meet

Blake: We met back in high school, I was 15 and he was 17. We went to different schools but met at a football game. Afterward, he tried talking to me online but I was a lot more shy back then. Eventually, we became best friends. We lost contact for about two years, but reconnected randomly on Facebook and have been together since.

Chad: We met each other in high school and I was interested right away, so I tried talking to her online, but it didn't work. She ignored me pretty much til we realized how much we both liked the band Avenged Sevenfold. From there we became real friends. Life happens and I married someone else when I was young and enlisting [in the military]. We didn't talk a couple years, but after I was on my own again a while she sent me a friend request. I FaceTimed her that very night and here we are now.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
