“Raven [has] a very conservative Southern woman in her,” Gottschalk told Dean Unglert recently on his podcast Help! I Suck at Dating (listen to the full interview here). “I have to kind of break her out of it. There’s tension that starts to evolve over this 14-day grace period. It’s something we’ve always played around with.”
Chimed in Gates: “I hate you so much! Oh God. Dean, I was listening to a podcast of yours earlier and you said you’re not into sexting. Maybe you’re just shy like me.”
Gottschalk, 27, currently lives in Texas and Gates, 26, resides in Arkansas, and the couple — who never go longer than two weeks without see each other — are planning to eventually move in together.
“It’s an end goal,” said Gottschalk. “That’s something we want to explore. I think it’s something … you want to build up to and get to and you want to settle down with somebody.”
When they do see each other, it feels like the “honeymoon phase,” said Gates, who was the one to instate the 14-day rule.
“I told Adam we can’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other because I just think that’s too long of a time,” she said. “Communication’s key. I tell him all the time, like, if we don’t see each other for two weeks, we’re breaking up!”
