Thabazimbi – February is the month of love and local beauty Dajana Rijetkovic and her fiancé Gerrie Havenga shared their ideas on love in an interview with Platinum Bushvelder.
Dajana and Gerrie met in 2008 while attending Hoërskool Frikkie Meyer. Dajana said that she knew he was ‘the one’ when they had their first fight. "I couldn't stay mad at him. There was something special about him,” she said.
The couple got engaged on Dajana’s twenty first birthday. "He made a slideshow for me and got on one knee afterwards."
When questioned about what love means to them Gerrie answered: “True love is to love someone unconditionally. You have to learn to understand the other person's point of view and accept each other unreservedly.”
Their idea of a great date night is to have a picnic in their backyard with candles and snacks. Quality time together is very important. It doesn’t matter if you are staying in or going out.
They suggest making a bucket list of things you want to do as a couple and every year on Valentine’s Day, check one item off your list.
“Spoiling each other with love and kisses should never be limited to one day. Gifts are nice but it should never be the foundation of your relationship,” Gerrie added.
