Relationships tend to come and go on Vanderpump Rules, but Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix have managed to keep their love alive. The SURvers broke down what makes their relationship so special in the above exclusive video for Personal Space, and you're definitely going to want to watch and learn.
For starters, Tom said there's one thing his relationship with Ariana has that his past romances didn't. "People say that our relationship is goals, #goals sometimes, and people ask us about what does it take to have a great relationship. And I think one thing that sets me and Ariana's relationship apart from definitely, like, my past is we definitely have a lot of respect for each other and who we are as people and our intelligence," Tom said.
The bartender also said couples need to stay together for the right reasons. "There's a lot of relationships where people are planning their exit strategy, or they're with each other because, oh, they already bought Coachella tickets with each other, or oh, they have a wedding coming up," Tom explained.
As for Ariana, she said it's the simple things that have kept their love alive. "I really think the key to our relationship is we don't physically assault one another," she joked. "I try to encourage butt play as much as possible."
Ariana recognizes these tips might not work for everyone. "Oprah would not approve of our relationship advice," she said.
But being the loyal boyfriend that he is, Tom made Ariana feel better about the knowledge she imparted in the clip. "I think she would deep down, but I think she would say she wouldn't," he joked.
With or without Oprah's approval, Tom and Ariana make for one adorable couple. See them show off their sexy side, below.
