Sara Lobla Speaking about their lengthy relationship, Miguel told Hot 97 in 2015 that "I've come so far as a man and I'm just starting to feel solid where I can be like, 'You know what? I think I can hold this down legitimately.' I think now people throw things around like marriage. I just wasn't raised like that." "I just follow my instincts," the "Adorn" singer continued. "I think she's learned that and she's had to adjust and had to learn and also embrace. And I love her more for that."

"We were used to being around each other a lot, but then we were also used to traveling a lot," the Dreamcatcher actress said at the time. "So keeping the spark alive was definitely something we had to stay on — because when you're in different cities, it's automatic to feel excitement [when you see each other again]." "But being home [together] all the time, it's like, 'Okay, we have to find new things to watch, and to do and to read,' " she continued. "It was a lot, but overall, we did great. I have no complaints, [and] am grateful for everything."
