DEMI & MARK

The story of Demi & Mark started in the hallways of High School. At first Mark thought he had seen this beautiful twin-sisters pass by, however that wasn’t quite true. He had seen his love walk by and eventually managed to get her attention. They are now very much in love and excited to be spending the whole summer together…

 What do you do?
Demi: I am a fulltime model and thus travel around the country a lot.
Mark: I work as a chef at the INK Hotel Amsterdam, and study at the Hotel School The Hague in Amsterdam.

How and where did you meet each other?
Demi: We know each other since High School, Mark was two years ahead of me so we did not have any contact then. We first chatted in a student café in Haarlem, which was my first night out actually… 

When I saw him playing the piano in the school hall I felt butterflies everywhere.

He thought he was alone in the hall, but I was secretly watching him from upstairs.

Describe each other in four words.
Demi: Ambitious, go-getter, realistic and solution-oriented.
Mark: Spontaneous, optimistic, caring, atmosphere creator.

At what moment did you know you were in love?
Demi: He had to win my attention first, as I was not that ‘easy’. But when I saw him playing the piano in the school hall I felt butterflies everywhere. He thought he was alone, but I was secretly watching him from upstairs.
Mark: It definitely was love at first sight. When I saw her walking through the halls of our school I was immediately sold.

Do you have a special place, or a place you call a “second home” where the two of you like to hang out and retreat to?
Both: Bali has a special meaning for the both of us, so we are really excited to go there together this summer.

What is the most annoying thing about your boy- or girlfriend?
Demi: He can have a short temper.
Mark: She is too active on her phone.

What is your craziest, most hilarious memory of you as a couple?
Mark: When I saw her walking in the hallways of school I thought she was a twin, seeing as I thought I had seen her sister the day before with another hair colour. Afterwards I found out that it was all the same girl, Demi had obviously coloured her hair one day and instantly reversed back to her old colour. We can both still laugh about that story, I was convinced there were two of her…

Who is your partner’s Hollywood dream date?
Demi: Angelina Jolie. When Mark picks a movie, it most likely will be one with Angelina. He even thinks I look a bit like the younger version of Angelina.

‘She had taught me to appreciate the smaller things in life more.’

Which character trait of the other are you jealous of?
Demi: He is always thinking in solutions. Which is quite handy.
Mark: Her empathy.

When was the last time you cried?
Demi: A week ago when I was watching a movie. I cry easily, especially when watching movies.

Which Disney character would your partner be?
Both: We would be Tarzan & Jane, the best duo you could imagine. Tarzan is intelligent and Jane is super caring, just like we are.

‘He should have kissed me. He waited a couple of dates to kiss me, which felt like an eternity!’

Describe your ideal Saturday evening together.
Demi: Mark is a really good chef, so I love when we are making dinner together and having a nice glass of wine. In the morning I will make breakfast, which we will eat in bed.

 If you could go back in time and take your partner on a first date again, what would you do differently?
Demi: He should have kissed me. He waited a couple of dates to kiss me, which felt like an eternity!
