MAFS’ Lizzie reveals secret to staying together
Constant text messaging and phone calls is the secret to keeping the Married At First Sight dream alive post show for Lizzie Sobinoff and Seb Guilhaus.
With Sobinoff based in Newcastle and Guilhaus in Adelaide, the pair have not seen each other face-to-face for three weeks due to coronavirus.
"We are constantly on the phone, he doesn't get a break from me," she laughed. "We talk every hour. It is a full on thing. We talk about everything and anything. The first thing I wake up there's a message from him and when I go to bed we message."
Sobinoff, 29, who this week launched her IGTV channel Chameleon by Lizzie Sobinoff, added: "I am in love. It is a real relationship. We have been apart for three weeks now, which is the longest we have been apart since we started filming in November. we are taking it slow. We need to be in constant contact because I am kind of impatient and he hasn't been in a relationship for eight years so we need to be in constant contact for us to work."
Sobinoff and Guilhaus are the only couple from the recent season of the controversial reality show to remain together, with the exception of Michael Goonan and KC Osborne, who split from their respective partners to date post show.
It is somewhat of a fairytale for kooky Sobinoff, who was famously mismatched with Sam Ball on the 2019 season.
She returned this year with a new look - a brunette and 10kgs lighter - ready to find love, which she did with 32-year-old Guilhaus.
"I came into it with a good sense of self," she said, adding of her and Guilhaus' relationship: "We are good. People see the show and think it is a fairytale. We have our good moments, our bad moments, our ups and downs and everything in-between trying to figure it all out.
Social media can be tough to navigate at the best of times and particularly bad when you are a contestant on a controversial reality show like MAFS.
That is why Sobinoff is careful with how she uses Instagram and other platforms.
"It can be brutal and absolutely appalling and disgusting. Two hours before I go to bed I don't look at it and first thing in the morning I don't look and I also don't read or reply to comments."
