For many people, a long, stable relationship is as rare as the thought of peace between T.Swift and Kim K. For gays, that hardship is elevated by a hundred percent. Often we use the excuse of only falling for fuccbois or not being ready for a relationship, so when a proper connection between two guys pops up, the LGBT community is thrown into a frenzy. That’s exactly how I feel about famed fashion photographer BJ Pascual and his long year relationship with Mike Lavarez.

A highly successful and loving relationship like this is one for the books. Their love story starts off like a fictional tale only possible in a Filipino indie film. A post night out treat in the form of lumpia served as their medium for emotional connection, from that moment on, the rest was history. Here are five sweet moments between the couple.

When BJ felt a little frisky in the water.
