Amsterdam, 2017


A bad pick-up line is to blame for these two young lovers’ romance of nearly 2,5 years. Due to their hectic travel schedules, according to the couple, they experience a deeper meaning of boundless love. Read more about them here…

How and where did you meet?
Tom: Lois had sent me a message via Facebook. I remember it was quite a bad pick-up line, but it somehow made it all super cute and funny. Not long after her message we saw each other during a casting in Amsterdam.

 When did you know you were in love?
Tom: I think right after I saw her beautiful blue eyes at that casting.
Lois: During one of our first dates we were strolling through Amsterdam, looking for a ‘pepernotenwinkel’ for hours. It was very cold outside, so naturally we walked rather close to each other. That was the moment I felt butterflies in my stomach.

‘I appreciate every moment I can spend with her.’

How would you describe each other in four words?
Tom: sweet, beautiful, energetic and silly.
Lois: caring, down to earth, stubborn and playful.

 When was the last time you cried?
Lois: When I was travelling home after spending a long time in New York. I was so excited and happy to finally come home that I had to cry when the stewardess welcomed me in the airplane. Well hello…

Which Disney character would your partner be?
Lois: The prince from Rapunzel who acts all firm, but is secretly a softy and super sweet.



Has your relationship changed you as people?
Tom: Due to her modelling career she travels a lot, which often makes me miss her a lot. On the flipside of that I thoroughly appreciate every moment I can spend with her.
Lois: Whenever I am with him, I feel at ease. I can be super busy and wild - in life but also in my head. Tom has taught me to give myself more rest. He also helped me be more confident, seeing as he loves me for the person I am.

What is your definition of love?
Tom: Unconditional love, even if your partner is on the other side of the world.

‘Wherever they play this song, we start doing that exact dance.’

When was the last time you were extremely proud of your partner?
Tom: When Lois decided to go to New York to chase her dreams. During my visit, I saw how she maintained her life in that big city and how she kept both feet on the ground, which made me so very proud.

Do you have a favourite song together? If so, what is it?
Lois: 24K Magic from Bruno Mars is one of Tom’s favourite songs, he even knows the whole dance. Wherever they play this song, we start doing that exact dance.
