She is not very fond of men who are out of shape because she understands that the potential that people can get to if they work hard on their bodies and live a healthy lifestyle. Jonathan was able to keep her interest because he never gave up on his work ethic. She could draw a lot of assumptions about someone’s life by the way they carry themselves and how they present themselves. Jonathan was a perfect fit for her because he checked all the boxes of what she wanted in a partner.

Sage and Jonathan went to Indiana University together. They met each other when one of her classmate introduced her to his roommate, Bailey. The meeting was the start of a love affair that would last for a very long time. In a time where most college students were trying to experiment and find multiple partners, Sage and Jonathan were locked into each other. They had no care to play the field or try to line up multiple suitors. They knew that they had already found their match when they started dating each other.

They were in a committed relationship for a very long time before they decided to take the next step by locking hands in marriage.
