Amsterdam, 2017


Karen met this incredible couple in early 2017 and was simply mesmerized by these two genuinely lovely characters and that nonchalant love they have for each other. Here, Jip, an up-and-coming model, and her boyfriend Ramon, who studies Audiovisual Design in Eindhoven, talk school dance and Harry Potter evenings with us…

Where does this love story start?
Ramon: We first met at school, when a friend of Jip introduced us. However, we didn’t really talk again until the school dance.
Jip: They day after the dance he had sent me a message on Facebook, asking me how come I was such a great dancer. That’s when it all started...

At what moment did you know you were in love?
Ramon: I fell in love with Jip when I saw her dancing that night at the school dance.

Ramon always calls me moon-face... 

...he thinks my face looks like the moon.

Describe each other in four words
Jip: modest, caring, sweet and funny.
Ramon: weird, sweet, beautiful and amazing.


What is the most annoying thing about your partner?
Ramon: Jip is very blunt.
Jip: Stubborn and cocky.

Do you have pet names for each other?
Jip: Ramon always calls me moon-face… He thinks my face looks like the moon. 

'We love a Harry Potter marathon as well as breakfast in bed, followed by a hike in the woods with our dogs.'

Which Disney character would your partner be?
Jip: Mickey Mouse
Ramon: Belle from Beauty and the Beast


What does your ideal weekend look like?
We love a Harry Potter marathon as well as breakfast in bed, followed by a hike in the woods with our dogs.

Do you have a favorite song together?
In the beginning we really felt connected by the song “We Dem Boys” by Wiz Khalifa. We still go nuts when we hear it. But a song that really fits us is “U want me” by Yung Gud.

What is your definition of love?
It’s growing old together, being able to keep on smiling, and not to take life too seriously.
