To celebrate Valentine's Day, AnOther speaks to four model couples about their relationships

If you can’t say it on Valentine’s Day, when can you say it? It is a day to fire Cupid’s arrows and celebrate love in all its unusual shapes and forms. To mark the occasion, AnOther asked four model couples about their relationships, from first glance to last laugh, and Barbara Anastacio took their pictures.

How long have you been dating?
We have been dating now for seven months.

The owner of my agency introduced us.

Kelsey and Myles

How long have you been dating?
Almost three and a half years.

Where did you meet?
At work in Philadelphia technically, but we didn't really talk until the train ride back.

What first attracted you to one another?
Miles: The first thing that attracted me to Kelsey was her sassy attitude. I was intrigued and the chase began.
Kelsey: The whole day we were working together he was so quiet with his usual scowl on that I thought he was foreign. Once he opened his mouth though I was a goner. Haven't stopped smiling since.

What was the last gift you gave each other?
Miles gave me an awesome record player for my birthday and I bought him a ticket to Florida for the holidays.

When was the last time you made one another laugh?
Miles: Constant laughter.
Kelsey: Just now as we schemed the most ridiculous answers to these questions.
