Jersey Shore lovebirds Sammi â€œSweetheartâ€ and Ronnie tell Life & Style exclusively theyâ€™re still going strong! â€œIâ€™m in it for the long haul,â€ Sammi says. â€œWe live about an hour apart, and I try to see him as much as I can.â€ Ronnie is just as smitten. â€œWeâ€™re still sticking strong,â€ he says.
Sammi, 22, confides she was hot for the beefy hunk from the get-go. â€œI would say it was love at first sight,â€ she says. For his part, Ronnie, 23, initially came into the show single and looking to stay that way. â€œI thought she was cute, but I wasnâ€™t really interested in anybody in the house,â€ he says. â€œBut the night we went out â€” the first night we did end up getting together â€” she came down the stairs and caught my eye!â€
But the duo havenâ€™t had the easiest courtship. There was the love triangle with Mike â€œthe Situation,â€ whom Sammi kissed on the second episode before hooking up with Ronnie. â€œI never had strong feelings for Mike,â€ insists Sammi. â€œI just thought he was cute at first. The Situation still thinks he has a chance with me even though he doesnâ€™t.â€ Ronnie isnâ€™t worried, though. â€œI didnâ€™t really find him to be a threat,â€ he tells Life & Style.
