Jersey Shore lovebirds Sammi Ã¢â¬ÅSweetheartÃ¢â¬Â and Ronnie tell Life & Style exclusively theyÃ¢â¬â¢re still going strong! Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m in it for the long haul,Ã¢â¬Â Sammi says. Ã¢â¬ÅWe live about an hour apart, and I try to see him as much as I can.Ã¢â¬Â Ronnie is just as smitten. Ã¢â¬ÅWeÃ¢â¬â¢re still sticking strong,Ã¢â¬Â he says.
Sammi, 22, confides she was hot for the beefy hunk from the get-go. Ã¢â¬ÅI would say it was love at first sight,Ã¢â¬Â she says. For his part, Ronnie, 23, initially came into the show single and looking to stay that way. Ã¢â¬ÅI thought she was cute, but I wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t really interested in anybody in the house,Ã¢â¬Â he says. Ã¢â¬ÅBut the night we went out Ã¢â¬â the first night we did end up getting together Ã¢â¬â she came down the stairs and caught my eye!Ã¢â¬Â
But the duo havenÃ¢â¬â¢t had the easiest courtship. There was the love triangle with Mike Ã¢â¬Åthe Situation,Ã¢â¬Â whom Sammi kissed on the second episode before hooking up with Ronnie. Ã¢â¬ÅI never had strong feelings for Mike,Ã¢â¬Â insists Sammi. Ã¢â¬ÅI just thought he was cute at first. The Situation still thinks he has a chance with me even though he doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t.Ã¢â¬Â Ronnie isnÃ¢â¬â¢t worried, though. Ã¢â¬ÅI didnÃ¢â¬â¢t really find him to be a threat,Ã¢â¬Â he tells Life & Style.
