Quavo & Saweetie Spill The Details On Their Modern Day Love Story

It all started in the DMs.

Finding the love of your life can be difficult when you're stuck in quarantine but the good news is, the love of your life might just be waiting for you in your inbox and rap superstar duo Saweetie and Quavo are proof of this fact. In September of 2018, the couple made their relationship public and almost two years later, the couple sat down with GQ to spill the details on exactly how their love story began.

The couple, who had both been smitten by one another long before their first encounter, told the publication that their journey started the way that most relationships in the digital age do: in the DMs.

"I seen her on my Explore page. I was like, 'Damn! Who is this?' So I did my research and I DM her. I was like, 'How she going to call herself icy and she don't talk to me?' So I slid in her DM. I told her, 'You an icy girl, you need a glacier boy.'"

It wasn't long before the two rappers had their first and second dates, which were less than ideal, to say the least, and proved that the third time is truly the charm. Soon, the rappers evolved from strangers to best friends and eventually partners. Quavo told GQ:

"When she talk to me and when we started talking to each other, the Saweetie shit go out the window and the Quavo shit go out the window."
"I give her Quavious. I give her what my mama calls me. I don't let people inside my life, and I let her inside. And she's helping me grow up. She's showing me how to love a woman."

Along with learning to speak each other's love languages, the couple says that communication has been key to making their relationship work. Saweetie explained:

"Growing up I struggled with communication, and he has taught me to be a better communicator. I feel like I'm growing and I'm maturing because of him—not the music, not Saweetie, but Diamonté.… I don't know how I would be as a person if I would have never met him."

Saweetie and Quavo are slowly but surely becoming one of our favorite celebrity couples, proving that Black love is alive and well in these streets and we love to see it.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
