Couples Speak: What are your Valentine’s Day plans?

Graphic by Rei Yamada.

In a special edition of Students Speak, Features Editor Abraham Teuber ’22 asked five couples and one throuple what they’ll be doing on Valentine’s Day.

“Well, Robert made us a reservation at Relish unbeknownst to me, it was a surprise reservation. … I’ve been to Relish a few times with my family but he’s never been.” – Will Donaldson ’23

“This is a Valentine’s Day gift to myself.” – Robby Burchit ’23

“Relish is also where Bernie went when he was here!” – Will

“Bernie couldn’t make it to the Valentine’s Day dinner, he’s got important things going on. Next year, hopefully.” – Robby

“Well, we are going to Culver’s in Newton, Iowa, because I’ve never been.” – Will Tellingator ’21

“Can you put that in caps? Shoutout to Carson Peters! Do you know who Carson is? She loves Culver’s.” – Elizabeth Collinger ’21

“What kind of food are we getting? I don’t even know for sure what they serve. I’d like a milkshake, maybe. That’s on the table.” – Will

“They have cheese curds. Shoutout to Marnie Monogue.” – Elizabeth

“Well, being a long-distance couple, it’s a little difficult to coordinate things generally but I think something we typically do is kind of say what we’re thankful for. … We talk about how much we really love this and how we really pushed against so many odds to make it work, it’s going to be a conversation at the end of the day, but it really matters, even if it’s like thirty minutes or something, it will be amazing.”
– Sriyash Prajval Kadiyala ’21 on his girlfriend Avni

“Um, we’re going to go swimming on the moon.” – Caroline Shea ’22

“No, Jesus, I think we’re going to make dinner?” – Lily Dawson ’21

“It’s private. It’s very private.” – Caroline

“No, it’s not private.” – Lily

“We were going to see a movie but there weren’t any good movies, there’s only the one about Harley Quinn which seems kind of boring.” – Micaela Daney ’22

“And the crime one which also seems pretty stupid.” – John Osler ’20

“Also, we were going to buy wine and drink it together in your room, except you have a track meet the next day.” – Micaela

“Yeah, don’t want to break NCAA rules.” -John

“So, we’re just going to hang out. Maybe go to the improv show.” -Micaela

“The three of us are going to an escape room, we’ll be doing a reading of “Betrayal” in the Wall and then we’re going to eat dinner at a triangular table. We’re also going to watch the new throuple episode of House Hunters. – Conner Stanfield ’21, Ahon Gooptu ’21 and Audrey Boyle ’21
