With Valentine’s Day upon us, The Queens Courier asked local couples what made them fall – and stay – in love.
Ellie Greenberg and Abraham Feldman
Q: How long have you been together?
A: Twelve years
Q: How did you meet?
EG: At the center. I gave him a card with name and number on it and it took him a couple of weeks to call. He was shy.
Q: Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day?
EG: Well I’m going to be away, I’m going to be in Florida. In the past we’ve had very nice dinners and he brought candy.
Q: What are some activities you do together as a couple?
EG: I like to go to Atlantic City and go on lots of different trips. We’ve been on seven cruises and also been to Vegas.
Q: What qualities or traits do you like about your partner?
AF: It’s really funny, our daughters knew each other in high school and my daughter told me, “Grab that lady and don’t let go.” It’s been a very pleasant 12 years and I would do it again.
EG: He’s a good person and can be a little annoying but on a whole he’s a good person. Hopefully it’ll be another 12 years or however long it lasts.
