As we all know, relationships can be wonderful, but extremely complicated all at once. Sometimes, they take on strange, unexpected forms that create blurred lines. What does it mean to be exclusive, but not an official couple? And when does hooking up turn into a friends-with-benefits scenario? This is the awkward love story of Dillon and Charlotte.

They met in their first-year of university, a time when neither of them wanted to be in a relationship. But their initial attraction to one another turned a platonic friendship into a budding romance. After a few months of dating, Charlotte wanted to put a label on the relationship. But Dillon was still scared of being tied down in a committed relationship.

Find out how the two ended up together despite wanting completely different things in this special Valentine's Day episode of Campus.
