Although Thomas and Lauren have been friends for most of their lives, it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. Thomas spent their high school years trying to win Lauren’s heart, but despite his best efforts, the two remained “just friends.”

Eventually, Lauren fell for Thomas as well, and they were married on October 12, 2012. They now share four daughters: Willa, Ada, Lennon, and Lillie.

Due to all of the buzz around the couple and their love story since “Die a Happy Man” hit it big, Thomas decided to share his top nine romance tips during a 2016 interview with iHeart Radio. They are as follows:

1. You should buy your girl some flowers.

2. Maybe roses.

3. Just don’t take her to Applebee’s.

4. Take her somewhere nice.

5. Take her somewhere Italian.

6. Get some good wine.

7. Open the door.

8. Leave a rose trail to the bedroom.

9. And then sing to her.
