Who needs grand gestures when there’s so much romance to be found in everyday life?
“Every day there is something that happens where both John and I look at each and just know that it’s going to be a comic eventually,” she told The Huffington Post. “We are always having a good time so it’s very easy to find inspiration from every little thing.”
Nervous about people’s reaction to her work, Catana wasn’t originally planning to post the comics online. So John took matters into his own hands and shared some of the comics on Reddit where they soon went viral.
“I knew he was going to post them, I just wasn’t thrilled about it,” Catana said. “Of course, as soon as I saw the response those feelings instantly went away.”
The pair, who has been dating for over a year, first connected on Tinder but the conversation fizzled and they didn’t end up meeting. Weeks later, on one fateful night, Catana spotted John at a bar and with her friends’ help, finally introduced herself.
And yes, the couple really is just as in love as they seem in the comics.
“John is constantly amazing me with his generosity in the way he treats me and everyone else he meets,” Catana said. “He is always finding ways to perk me up when I’m sad, support his friends, and is always finding the bright side of bad situations. He’s also pretty goofy which is perfect ― hours of free entertainment.”
