Oh, Valentine’s Day. Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny its existence. More importantly, it’s a time to look to those people you really care about, whether that’s your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, best friend, or your fat cat.
We figured we’d give into the love a bit and ask some of the cutest couples we know to ask each other some questions on their relationship such as favorite (and least favorite) habits, first date pick-up lines, and much more.
First up, Alexander Esguerra and Jessie Jo Johnson. They’re both smoking hot creatives living in Williamsburg. Alex is a creative director who is currently killing the game with his erotic art kit, Love & Paint (the perfect V-Day gift if you ask us) and Jessie is a talent manager working at BMF Media.
Read what these sexy bucks asked one another. WARNING: COUPLE ENVY WILL ENSUE.
