Charles and Bertha first met through a mutual friend in college. Known to everyone around him as a quiet guy, Charles, though smitten from the jump; tried to get to know her better before telling her his intentions.

Bertha saw him as a friend and when she started noticing he wanted a bit more than friendship, she started putting some distance between them and would make excuses to avoid seeing him.

After an incident when he caught her out on a lie, they both decided to talk things over properly and Charles may have said all the right words that melted her heart and she finally gave in to his advances and agreed to be his girlfriend.

By the time the couple officially started dating, their relationship hit several snags as Charles lived in a different town and spending time together was an issue due to the distance. The long-distance relationship took a toll on Bertha who broke off the relationship several times.
